My DIL needed a stocking, and my son said she liked monkeys and whales, so I made a monkey riding a whale. The penguins were just too cute to pass up. I found a picture on line and printed it on graph paper.

That is SO cute! I am going to make my kids and my DD's roommate stockings this year.....I swear I am! I think my kids (now 21 and 17) have outgrown the stuffed dog and reindeer stockings from their youth!

Neat!!! I wish I was that talented. I have just graduated myself from dishcloths to attempting to knit my gbabes sweaters. I have the yarn, the pattern and the needles and plenty of time before it next fall, now I just need the courage to get started.

OH MY GOODNESS!! I am impressed. :woohoo: Is that intarsia? I am a beginning knitter. How long did it take you to get to where you could knit like that?

Thanks! yes, it's intarsia. I have been knitting for a very long time, but I think since I started as a child, I'm not afraid to try anything. What's the worse that can happen?

I printed out pictures onto graph paper, cut and pasted (literally) to work out the monkey/whale stuff, and went for it. I have to say, though, that in order to fit everything, it is one BIG stocking. I think a small child could be put on the mantle next Christmas. :teehee:

What a cool Christmas stocking! So individual with the monkey riding the whale just for DIL. The penquins are pretty (they are what monkey saw while riding around down south). It is not easy to get a good likeness of an animal on such a small scale. You did a great job with your charts.
