Stockings, Stockings, Stockings!

For the past month or so we've been taken out by illnesses - nothing serious - just what will probably be come to known as the back to school trial by fire. Kiddo gets sick at school, recovers, Mama gets sick, recovers, lather, rinse repeat. Le sigh. The good news to all of this is that it leaves plenty of knitting time. May I present - a trio of stockings.
Mix and Match Stockings
I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in the colors and amounts found herehere, and here (all Ravelry links). This is one of those patterns that the more you make of them in coordinating colors, the better they all look. I'm not gonna lie, I was ready to see the back of these by the third one, but I think it was worth the effort.

They are all wrapped up and waiting to be opened by my brother and his family. All the knits I've sent so far have been greatly appreciated so I have a feeling these will go over big as well. Let me tell you, it is highly dangerous to now be receiving text messaged pictures of a new little man wearing the baby knits I've been making. Makes me want to knit All The Baby Things.
