So I have been busy working on the Christmas stockings. They knit up really fast and the directions are fairly easy to read. Originally I had thought to add eyelash yarn to the cuff but I like the look and feel of the moss stitch I decided against it. I hadn't ever heard of the yarn brand Loops and Threads before I found this pattern. I love working with the fiber so much I want to use the bulky "Charisma" again.
So I was worried about the size of the finished stocking. In my mind's eye I saw large cozy looking stockings for our family. I wasn't disappointed when i measured the finished project from cuff to toe to be almost 20 inches. The size is perfect for me. Not over whelming big or too small or odd looking.
