Valentines...

Done! Fun pattern, andquick too.
I decided to make stockings, but with a couple of modifications...I'm not very fond of ribbons and lace, although I like the original...but to make them more useful for me, I did the back of the stocking in ribbing, increasing every 10th row a few times. They fit, I only need to add a ribbon or something at the top to keep them up! I also changed the edging, and knitted it on. Kitty likes them too;-)
Yarn: Ida strømpegarn, from TrysilGarn, 80%wool superwash, 20% nylon, 50gr=150m
I used just a little more than 4 balls.
Needles: My new Addi 2.5mm circular, wooden,( great needles!) magic loop, both at the same time.
Thanks for another nice pattern, Tama. Looking forward to March:-)
