I posted these over on the knit-along thread for Christmas stockings, but thought I would post them here for those who don't visit the knit-alongs. I know I would miss things if people only posted there.

Is this considered bad form to post in both places? I can remove this if so.

This stocking is made from a pattern that has been used for the Christmas stockings in my husband's family for over 50 years. My daughter's want me to continue the tradition and make them for their children.

It's my first interlac project (talk about ends to weave in!). I don't think I have ever done so much frogging and tinking before, but I finally have one done and another well on it's way.

I used Cascade 220, except for the angora for the snowman, and size 6 needles.
