Another Stocking and Blanket Beginnings.

 Yes, another stocking! My son chose his colors, I think it looks okay. He loves anything military. I still have two more to make, for my oldest boys. Though I guess at 20 and 22 they're not really boys any more.
I started the blanket I mentioned before, using Alice's pattern from Crochet with Raymond. I'm really trying to use up my stash of yarn, I literally have a closet full! I'm not diggin my yellow and orange choices though. I might slide over to the store and get one or two colors that blend a little better. You would think with all I have that I could find a few different shades to choose from. I just don't have that many for those two colors. So after lunch I believe I'll bop over to hobby lobby and get one roll of yellow and one orange. I'll take a piece of the two colors I like out of each set so I can find something that blends well (see how I talk myself into making it okay)? I'm sure there are a few yarnaholics who can relate! I've enjoyed myself so far in making these. I set myself up in my cleaned up craft room yesterday, stuck in Lost to listen to while I worked and had a nice afternoon. I have cooking and baking planned for the weekend but in between I'm going to shut myself up in my room and crochet the day away! Have a good weekend everyone!
