The stockings are modifications or take-offs of "Judy's Colors" stockings, all knit while leading a class in these handsome stockings, at Knitting Etc. I got a bit excited, wasn't able to exit the stocking mode. These are for my DIL, Schuyler, my son, Alexander (with the requisite purple dinosaur, Mary), my daughter, Elizabeth, and her housemate, Kevin, both Seattle doctors on duty over Xmas, so needing stockings to stave off self-pity.
The mitten (whose partner is in the works), is for my mother, who power walks every morning come rain or come freeze, and who, then, will appreciate the warmth of the Dale Baby Ull stranded knitting. The pattern, Postwar Mittens by Mary Ann Stephens, is available at Twist Collective, and designs a mighty elegant gant.
