Thought I'd show you pictures of the stocking I made for my swap. I based it on the Mason Dixon Christmas Stocking.
Here it is just before I sent it - all stuffed and ready to go.
Close up of the name (and yes that is how you spell her name) and I chose to do the corrugated rib as I love the effect.
Do you like the snowflake? You can see my tension is much tighter here and the stocking pulls in. Maybe next time I will go up a needle size for the fair-isle.
I put the year on the back - I like that idea. The foot just kept going though - and that toe is super-pointy!!!
