Stockings & Suspenders

Ugh. I am in a creative black hole. There is so much awesomeness out there (like Ucreate’s Party Skirt or Design*Sponge’s Scrap Paper Notebook or Smitten Kitchen’s Peach Shortbread) but I am feeling completely inadequate in comparison. Here’s hoping I snap out of it soon.

As I mentioned awhile ago, I’ve been getting a head start on my Christmas knitting and I’ve just finished Mary Lou’s Holiday Stocking. I fiddled with it a little (OK maybe a bit more than a little) and changed the colors, made it longer and the strips differently sized and there is something just not right about it. I’m looking at it, fed up. It’s a really good pattern and well written, there is something just not right. I think it’s lacking the magical Christmas feel. Maybe be December it will appear different. Humph, here’s hoping and here’s hoping you’re managing better than me at the moment!
