I also have a bit of christmas fabric left over from last year and would like to make some of these. Will get my oldest daughter involved as she is doing textiles at school.

Could you tell me if you are using the fleece for padding for the inside when they are this small? or just the outer fabric and lining?

I've never knitted a sock before... but I have all this extra red and green yarn :o/

I might give it a try this weekend... this yarn could totally be doing something better than sitting in my basket!

Socks aren't hard, Evan. You'll just learn some new tricks. I find my own pattern faster, but it's not a "real" sock more of a Christmas Stocking.

I'm actually just doing the outer fabric. Since the stuff going in them isn't very heavy I'm not bothering with a lining or padding either. I'm serging the insides, and doing the cuff double thick, folding it in half and serging it so that the serged part will sit under the cuff and not be seen. I don't know if that makes sense how I said it, or if maybe I should post a picture to show you what I mean?

I think I'm past the scary part of my first stocking!! Managed to turn the heel and work the gusset... now I just have 3 rows of decreases, 6 of st st, and then the toe decrease.

It was pretty stressful never having done any of those things before... especially picking up stitches, but after trying it out it turns out it's not quite as scary as it looks/sounds :o)

Hopefully I have one done in the next few hours!

(Hating the yarn I'm using... but it's bright christmas-y red... so hopefully my fingers can endure me making one every couple days or so ;o)

They don't have to be red and green, Evan. I have some, but many are other crazy colors, too. Kids like all colors and not all celebrate Christmas.
