Handknit Wool Christmas Stockings

I have finally perfected my Christmas Stocking pattern and am ready to get my needles clicking before Christmas!

I just finished this pair to sell on my shop:


I think the monogramming is so cute and these handknit Christmas Stockings will be a treasured heirloom!

This is a photo edited name to show what they will look like! I can stitch in other colors than the darker shade (I personally think a black monogram would look nice!)...


If you don't desire stripes, but would like a solid two-colored Christmas Stocking, I can do them plain or with a fun stitched design on the leg!

I'm hoping to get the pattern published on Ravelry for purchase at some point, but for now, I am going to offer customs!

Contact me at if you'd like to talk about customs or if you have ANY questions!!

Thanks!! ~ Bridget

My Wool in Action... Miss Victoria

I just received THE cutest birthday photos EVER from Candice, so of COURSE I just HAD to show them off!

On Sept. 1, my blog post was about a pair of custom Budgie Bloomers I knit for Candice's daughter, Victoria, who was turning 1!

Here is my original post about them ~ Kitty Face Budgie Bloomers Post

OK. This just melts my heart. When she opened her special longies on her birthday...

...she kissed them!!!


Here's the pretty birthday girl and her pretty Mama...


Look at that adorable smile...


Her Mama had such a cute shirt made up to match it!! I am going to find out just who made that sweet top because I want to rave about her! (I'll add a link to her shop after my detective work!)


OK, little tootsies sticking out from underneath her rufflies, you are TOO cute! I love little bare feet!!


Yes, I did try to intentionally make it look like she was looking up at my shop's name, haha, but we all know she was looking up at someone who loves her ;-)


I am happy to have been part of making her first birthday extra special!


Happy Birthday, Victoria! God bless you, sweet one!

Phew... Knitting Budgie Bloomers New World Record!

ok... maybe not a WORLD record, but I know I had to pass my own record time for knitting a large sized pair of Budgie Bloomers!

I finished this pair in just under a week! Started on a Friday and ended (all but the i-cord) on a Wednesday night. I knit the i-cord this morning (Thurs.) and they are all ready to mail out to the little birthday girl!


Here is the precious birthday girl herself, Miss Victoria...


Her Mama, Candice, sent me her idea of what she wanted and here is a photo of the 2 together! I think I got them pretty close!


So... now my fingers need a vacation. BUT... addicted knitters don't give their fingers vacations... so it's on to my next project!

I also wanted to share with you what Candice said after seeing them.


First of all, you amaze me! You just brought your hero status to the next level! I actually have tears in my eyes right now! They are absolutely beautiful, exactly how I pictured them in my "dreams" haha :D Please, please post the photo in your blog/facebook/local newspaper/guinness book of world records, everyone NEEDS to see the fruit of all your hard work! These are going to make her day sooooo special! I can't wait for her to see them, she's going to LOVE them! I will take photos of her seeing them for the first time for you ;P Please list that custom so I can pay the queen of knit! You are awesome and I am so thankful I came across your shop :)" about tears. I had them when I read this!!

I'm a hero. Aaaaaah. Feels good :)
