Leslie told us of this in September, but, as always, I was busy and did not get started until 2 weeks ago. Leslie even pointed us towards the pattern to use on the bulky machine to make the stockings be about 7 inches in the foot and about 12 inches tall.
I did get busy and knit 20 stockings in a very simple style. Fairisle would have left floats, so I did one color stockinette or striped stockinette. I got inspired when I visited the craft store and saw a handout from Red Heart yarns for a striped stocking. I loved the way the darker color wide band was split for the light color heel. So I copied this style.
At first I thought the stockings were too big, so I made the green and white solid stockings in a shorter size. I hope they can sneak by without getting rejected
I plan to get these in the mail on Monday.
