Snowman Christmas stocking FO


Yay, it’s another FO (finished object). I posted this morning with a photo of my less-than-satisfactory snowman. Only one comment was received (from Eleonora of Coastal Crochet.com) but I was glad of the input. I agree with her that the hat looked too big, so I whipped it off the stocking and tossed it. I repositioned the scarf slightly, duplicate stitched an alternative hat, made a tiny pompom (just like I used to when I was a child, with two little cardboard circles) and added some stick arms.

Tai Chi Man also thought the hat looked wrong but the scarf was okay, so that gave me the extra impetus I needed to change things. And he approved of the pompom hat too!

imageSpecs: Loops & Threads Impeccable in red hot, kelly green, orange crush, white and black. Size 8/5mm needles.

I am surprised at how quickly I finished this. It took less than two weeks. I have no intentions of knitting any more though – it’s time to get back to the crochet.

November 11th tomorrow – Remembrance Day – which reminds me to continue to pray for peace. Have a great day.
