Charity Makes.

 At Crafty Hijinks I picked up 5 stocking fronts that had all the pieces fused on ready to sew.
 Tilli and Meggie today in the sewing room.
 I have finished doing all the appliques on the stocking front, added a back and lined them. The lining I made longer to look like the tops have been turned over. They will be filled with goodies and placed under the K.Mart Wishing Tree this year.
I have also been making knitted scarves. One ball of 8 ply yarn using 6mm knitting needles with this simple stitch. Cast on 25 stitches, slip 1, k2, p2 to end. All  rows are the same. This creates a stretchy broken rib that is thick, warm and looks the same on both sides. These will be for the Guardian Pharmacy makes.
