In addition to learning how to make lucet cord, which was fun, I've done a huge amount of the stocking. Patterned part is completely finished, heel is turned and foot is started.
Hopefully I won't lose my speed now that I am doing the boring foot. It's just plain red! At least it's not an ordinary shaped foot - it is short and fat, so I think it will go quickly.
I ended up not doing any Dr Who at all. But I think that finishing the stocking will be a good incentive. I'm looking forward to having a carrier bag full of ready-to-go Christmas presents soon. And the llama and the stockings have to be mailed to the States, so they are the priority.
