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 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!

    I also make Christmas Stockings but, mine are crocheted. Your stockings are quite nice and very well done. I'm sure they are a favorite for the holidays.
