I've only been knitting since August, but I've already fallen in love with it. I'm having a blast making whatever random thing I can think of. These are just some of the things I've completed more recently.

I made Christmas stockings for my two coworkers, and also one for my boss and one for his wife. This one I made for my coworker who loves the color black.

I made this for my other coworker. I wasn't sure what colors to use, so i just used traditional Christmas colors.

I made this for my boss's wife, who is a very colorful person. I randomly decided to use the blue for the heel and toe, which seems to have matched the rest of the stocking perfectly. I think it makes it feel more vintage somehow, but I'm a little strange.

This was actually the first stocking that I made. This was made for my boss, who is a big UF Gators fan. I used the "striped christmas stocking" pattern from ravelry for it. I based the other stockings off of this one, but this one still came out the best. I like how uniform the stitches are, and how it looks almost professionally made.

And finally, this is my chicken. I was knitting the chicken pattern from the book "World of Knitted Toys," but read the pattern wrong somehow. I ended up making him twice as long as he should be, but I think he's really cute. Reminds me of the chickens in Zelda, Ocarina of Time.

oh, and i'm allnaturalpam on ravelry. Smiley

I love the wild colors you picked for the stockings, and the chicken is awesome!
