Christmas in Tallinn 

Moving right along in my bid to get Christmas knitting completed before midnight on December 24th, I can now tick 2 Christmas in Tallinn stockings off the list.

Both stockings were knit with a combination of Elann Peruvian Highland Sport (coloured) and Elann Peruvian Alpaca Fina (white). The deeper wine red was done as the pattern suggested with 3.25 mm needles, switching to 2.75mm needles for the 'foot' portion.

The other stocking was knit on 3.00 mm & 2.75 mm needles. Going down from 3.25 to 2.75 definitely makes for a nicer proportioned stocking.

Now I just need to buy a chocolate Santa and these are set to be gifted to the two Mrs. R's that spearheaded the trip this past summer for #5 and her choir-mates to Tallinn and beyond.

Still on the Christmas knitting list.....

Better keep clicking those needles or midnight December 24th could still be a reality.
