Lettering

So here’s my attempt at felted duplicate stitch:

I’m fairly happy with it. Most of the irregularities are due to my incompetence at duplicate stitching, but I’m getting the hang of it and I think I can do a better job on the stockings themselves. (If it’s not clear, the swatch is meant to say “TIG”. And the poor centering comes directly from my inability to count and do simple arithmetic). I want to put our names on mine and Mark’s, and Tigger’s, of course.

I’m not far from finishing the second stocking… this is all I’ll be doing for the next week or two, so get ready to see multiple iterations of the same pattern, in different colour combinations. How exciting!

Thanks, by the way, for the kind words about the aran. I’m happy with it, though it is definitely acres too big for a <1-year old child. Oh well, she can grow into it… over the next two years…

Tig for TIgger, of course. So this is how you are using up that enormous box of yarn! You are very brave to be knitting the stockings in December. I would have had to start them in October, at least, to get them done in time. Can’t wait to see them all finished.
