Hi y'all!
Brand-new to this forum, but I've been knitting for over 6 years. Now, that being said, I've never done socks or stockings before! :think:
So here's the beginnings of the Christmas stocking I'm making for my 19-month-old boy.

The cuff is made out of Blue Sky Alpaca Bulky Natural in Polar Bear. I've been obsessed with Celtic knotwork cables for a LONG time, so I wanted to be adventurous!
I thought I'd be different and make the stocking part out of the same company's organic cotton yarn in a really pretty green.
Is it awful?
