Oh, Grandma, you have created a great stocking. It comes up to your thigh...and it will stretch!! Oh, the treasures it will hold. He'll love it. It sounds like you learned a lot with the project and are putting your new knowledge right to work.

Always nice when a project proves to be a learning experience! Good job!!!

If the floats on the inside seem problematic, esp if you're going to fill the stocking and grabby hands might do damage, you might want to consider doing a lining.

I was thinking about that, a lining. I may just make him another one, and let him keep this one for, well, for whatever he wants, and use the new one for his real Christmas Stocking.
Maybe we can take this big ol' stocking out every year and have a laugh. "grama's first Christmas stocking!".

What little boy wouldn't love to have a stocking like that? Think of all the wonderful surprises he'll pull out of it. It's beautiful, and your knitting is beautiful as well.
