July/August Blackbird Stockings

 
Fini.

I really really really need to not let these build up again because doing the finishing on these six at a time, well, it sucks. There really is no other way to put it. lol

Eight months down, four more to go. And then........then I don't know what. All I know is that I am determined to see this project through to the end. I bought all 12 booklets and I'll be damned if I don't use all 12 booklets.

Upskirt pic for those who like such things (sssh, I won't tell!):

Beautiful stockings! You did such a great job finishing them! You're much braver than I am. I'm terrified of the finishing part! lol

Cole said...

Stupendous!!!

Nancy said...

You did a gorgeous job of both stitching and finishing! Can't wait to see the next set.

Margaret said...

Very nice. I like the beading on the loop.

Is finishing off these stockings as bad as weaving in ends in knitting?

Sylvia said...

You are on a roll - so productive . I did not buy the charts because I thought I would never do them. Now I see the finished.... tempting. But I have so much I need to do, like I need to update my blog... maybe I will go do that now.

What is that saying--oh my flipping heck!--?!? Well, seriously, oh my gosh. F-A-B-Ulous!! I am so impressed. Okay, this settles it, I'm going in search of my Halloween BBD stocking booklet...

Oh my gosh, they are beautiful!! the finishing is perfect! If you decide you don't want them, send them to me!

Pumpkin said...

Horray!!!! Good for you Melanie :o) They look great. I feel so unproductive :o(

Melanie said...

Margaret - Hmmmm, I actually don't mind weaving in ends so I don't know how to answer that. lol
I think these are a little finickier to finish only because of the curves. It's not *hard* - but it does take a tiny bit of extra time to 'massage' the curves to look really good. :)

They're so pretty! And your finishing is perfection. I've only made one of these stockings so I know what a pain they are to finish. Great job!

Michele said...

oh I am drooling! love all your stockings :)

Pretty Things said...

I really, really, really have not forgotten to send you yarn! The contractors in my house (knocking down walls and such) have me distracted. Sigh.

Jennifer said...
