View Full Version : very tall stocking
05-28-2006, 08:46 AM
I finished this last night (after two hours of weaving in ends *shudder*). I like it, but it is too big for me, I didn't think at all about sizing when I was making it until I got to about the knee, oh well. The girl who made the pattern is *obviously* taller then I am, so I'm hoping I can find someone it'll fit. :)

I say hang it up by the fire with care and demand Santa fill it with goodies! I imagine a whole sweaters worth of yarn will fit in there :D

Another member on this fourm gave me a great piece of advice - spend the last 10 minutes of you knitting time weaving in ends - that way, at the end of the project you don't have those hours and hours and hours! I did that on my last project and it was so nice to be finished and only have to weave 2 ends in! ;)

That's awesome! I started one of those in different colors but haven't picked it up in a while. I think I'm only on the fourth stripe! I'm pretty short, so I'm going to shorten mine up a bit.

OOOHH - I need to get that pattern from you - my step daughter is wanting to make thigh-highs - all the patterns we are running across are too "Grown up" for her - they are all the fish net looking things - she just wants thigh highs to wear with her skirts - she's 17 yrs old. Those would be perfect!
