Grandson's Christmas Stocking HUGE!
I knit this Christmas stocking for Devon, my grandson, I had no idea it would come out so HUGE!
This stocking fits my whole leg, past my thigh!
I'm sure he'll love it, but his parent's will have a time filling this monster up! lol !!
This was the first time I knit with more than one color, or more than one ball of yarn at one time. Yikes, the inside of the stocking is very strange looking, yarn all over the place.
I still need to add the little sequince on the tree's.
I will try to make a couple more for my other two grand son's, but not quite as big. They're just babies, so they won't know they don't have a huge Christmas stocking yet....lol!!!

WOW, that's amazing! Doesn't it feel great when your 'first time' to do something comes out looking so wonderful?

Hi Carey, and yes it does feel great!
I'm now in the process of knitting the next stocking and I have learned a lot from the first one. Like, how NOT to stretch the yarn across when switching colors.....I did that in the first one and had to cut a lot of yarn because it was bunching up. Now, if I have to go more than a couple of stitches I make SURE there is enough yarn to go the next color change.
This probably is not making any sense....but I just wanted to say that Yes, it feels really good and I learned a lot! (:
THANK YOU,
sue

I love it! It's very cute, and think of the fun he'll have pulling everything out. If I were his parents, I'd be thinking oranges and stuff like that for the bottom.

I would be so excited to be a kid (of any age, including my own ) and have a stocking that huge...that means I would get more candy!

Candy is good.
