Binary Stocking Progress
This is the binary stocking so far. The message reads Happy New Year on this side. I've added a toe and cuff. The toe is stockinette while the cuff is seed stitch (lies flat). Next I will add the heel. When seen in r4eal life, the embroidery has more "texture " than I would like. I may embroider the reverse side of the stocking in red for a low-contrast effect. The message will be in Irish Gaelic. Although my husband is Scottish, Scots Gaelic writing is too long to fit on the stocking. The encoded text will read "Pog mo thoin" which will remain untranslated. Be assured that it is appropriate for the recipient.
