# 14 Is DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 14th WIP in a row is finished, washed, and blocking:and does a pretty mean "little teapot" as well.

And--drum roll please--I have now used 18,106 yards or just over 10 miles of yarn this year! Oh my! Now if that only made a sizable dent in the stash......

I haven't cast on anything new, nor have I worked on Fleur or dem fischer sin fru today. Instead, I worked on the five red stockings:
and all the legs are now embroidered, but tonight I noticed this:Notice anything? Part of the design didn't transfer through to the embroidery card, so the holly leaves look a little funny. Two stockings have this problem--though I didn't notice until I did the second one. My options are to rip out the design & put something else there, try to fix it by hand (and this would be a good time to mention that I am not a good hand embroiderer--I tried doing a pillowcase a few years ago and it looks like it was done by a five year old with the shakes), or ignore it and hope the recipients don't notice. Thoughts???
