Last year, I decided to knit some Christmas stockings, and once I get the knitting bug, sometimes I just don't know when to stop. Here are a few of my creations. The original ideas came from a Jean Greenhowe pattern book called Christmas Favourites. http://www.jeangreenhowe.com/index.html
The others I made up as I went along. The other stockings were knitted is unknown leftovers from my enormous yarn stash.
At the request of friends, I even knitted a couple of Channukah stockings, which I think must be quite unusual! These were knitted in Lion Brand Woolease and the one I gave away was received with great joy and hung correctly by the chimney for the secret Maccabee! http://cache.lionbrand.com//yarns/woolease.htm
