As soon as I return, I will tackle the the remainder of the new stocking pattern. It's coming along nicely. Creating designs for my own purpose is significantly different from designing for a pattern release. I usually work directly from bolts of fabrics/trims (not pre-measure quantities) & sewing adjustments are done on the fly - it is much more free form & flexible. I am presently re-engineering the construction process of the candy cane stocking to make it easy as possible to describe & sew. I like to ensure that customers using my patterns have all the information needed to successfully complete the pattern in the easiest possible manner.
