  • And the Stockings Were Hung

    'Twas the day before Christmas and all through the house . . .
    And the stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
    In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
    -Clement St. Moore

    What can I say? I love these, our new stockings for our first Christmas together. Our First Christmas Stockings
    Pattern: Holly Stocking (Theresa) and Moose Stocking (James) from Annie's Woolens (Exceptional service, fast shipping, and a gorgeous product. Go buy some now.)
    Yarn:
    they came as kits of Barlett's, and I think I have enough leftover to make a whole third stocking - very generous amounts
    Needles: US 8 dpns. How is it that I don't have a 16" circular in US8?
    Notes: The only real modification I made was to make the hanging loop out of 4 stitch i-cord instead of a crochet chain. I'm expecting them to be full! I also used the short-row heel and toe variation provided, and the yo-short rows worked great.
    Best Thing About This Project: The personalization, of course. These are our stockings for many Christmases to come.

    Need some new stockings? It's Christmas Eve - you still have time!

    I love the stockings! I have to make one for the hubby as well, now that we have a fireplace. Mine in sewn, so I think I may sew his too. I also have to think about what to make for the Guppy for next year.

    I love them! Though I am amused because you and my dad now have the same stocking (that pattern was one of my first-ever knitting projects).

    May you get many happy Christmases of use out of them.
