Hawkeye Stocking

Hawkeye Stocking

Pattern: Rustic Lodge from the Knit Christmas Stockings book.

Yarn: Reynolds Lopi in yellow and black. This yarn hurts my hands for some reason. I thought it was a fluke the last time I knit a project with this yarn, but now I'm not so sure.

Needles: US 9

Time: 7 hours

Other: This one was knit for the Youngest Son. He's really into the Hawkeyes lately so, of course, he requested a black and gold stocking. He's also into nutcrackers for some reason. They had some at Target that he kept eyeing, as well as not so subtly suggesting that I needed one. It's funny how I always seem to need the things he wants. Funny that!

We didn't buy the nutcracker at Target, but I did find one little lone gold nutcracker in my little jar of Holiday Ingredients. It seemed fitting to add it to the Hawkeye stocking.
