Needlework Tuesday - A Canadian Christmas Stocking
The pattern is from McCall's Needlework December 1993. I used two balls of Patons Classic Wool, colour 00230. At some point a bug/moth or some such beastie got at the wool and ate and secreted something on it and broke all kinds of strands. I have seen this once before on something my sister was knitting. Weird as I had only bought the wool a week earlier.
It's kind of hard to see the pattern, but its a cable with seed stitch in the middle (top edge) and then bobbles in clusters of 4 in the top band and in the curves on the body of the sock.
Still working on two afghans for the holidays. One will definitely be finished, the other will become a birthday gift in February. Oh well, timing was never at the top of my skill list.
