Crocheted stockings

I mentioned a few posts ago that I was already looking ahead to Christmas 2008, at least as far as new Christmas stockings for the whole family. Well, I'm happy to say that I got further than just looking ahead and actually made them! I used this pattern (note: you might have to sign up for free in order to see it). I made a few minor adjustments, such as making it longer from top to heel, working the toe differently to avoid having to sew more seams than necessary, and doing only six rows for the cuff (I used a thicker eyelash yarn so six was plenty!). What do you think?



I'm very pleased with how they came out ... now I can't wait until next Christmas so I can try them out LOL!
