Christmas stockings

grandcarriage's picture

Here is the 1934 "Ladies Home Companion" (Uk version) Christmas stocking. The finished one is by "granny" for client in 1971. It is being knit in fingerling weight acrylic/nylon (hard to find christmas colors these days in real wool). I am turning the heel on the sock right now and should have it completed in an hour or two. I will be swiss darning the name and various details on it.

I think I will detox after I finish the second one by knitting some "Dr. Seuss" Christmas socks...big candy striped ones in red/white or green/white with 7 toes, or something. Or maybe with one long pointy toe, ala "Who-ville". I am just a little cutsie-d out. I need something bizarre.
