A Little Something

I just finished my first miniature stocking!  It's made from a pinch of sparkly white Lion Brand Fun Fur, a palmful of Red Heart Luster Sheen (both leftover from other projects), and was knit on four size two dpn's.  My mom adapted the pattern from the Plymouth Yarn Company (click on "free patterns" and choose the Jeanee sock, and blogged about it here.  The stocking was lots of fun to make, and was a wonderful little reminder of basic sock knitting techniques, including gusset-making and toe-shaping and kitchenering!

Surely I could make one each month (total knitting time was probably about 5 hours), and by next Christmas have 12 little stocking ornaments to share with friends and family...

Love it! I'm thinking the same thing about getting ready for next Christmas starting now!

I especially like your braided hanging loop! How clever!
