Finished!



Finished my first WISP (Work in Slow Progress) this afternoon. I had to have two goes at the cuff - managed to have the seam on the outside the first time! Decided a yo-yo would be cute and added the ric-rac on the toe. I made lots of yo-yo's with the clover yo-yo maker while watching Australian Idol this year - it was good to finally use one. I think the stocking actually looks more aged than comes across in the photo. It feels good to have completed something.
