After finishing the cowl, I started working on a Christmas stocking for a friend’s baby.  Here’s the progress so far.


Yes, you’re right. That is indeed a crappy cell phone photo. I texted my friend with it to show her the progress, and then decided a blog entry was in order as well. And there you have it. Actual knitting content.
