snowman

This christmas stocking turned out really nice. Many years ago I attempted to knit with multiple colors and the piece puckered all over the place.

Pattern: snowman sock, red oak designs

Yarn: Frog Tree Alpaca Sport Wt, red, green, off white, gray #009, orange #20, black

Needles: US3 and US4 straight

Specs: I followed the pattern as written even though it called for heavy worsted

I would really love to knit Christmas stockings, but I'm not sure how to start. Are they just giant socks with interesting pictures on them?

Nice stockings! That reminds me: oh, the holiday knits!

Yes, Marsha, Christmas stockings are basically giant socks. However, all other socks I've knit on circular needles. This stocking I was knitting intarsia (blocks of color - using bobbins), so I knit it on straight needles.
