Christmas Stocking-pic heavy
As we set up the Christmas things this year, we realized that Ryan was the only one without a hand-knit/special significance stocking, so I made him the stocking-of-all-stockings. I did get a bit carried away, but he loves it.

I found clip art on the web and a chart from Tap-Dancing Lizards (a book of cool charts) and used beads and crystals to sparkle it up a bit. The cat is on the top of the foot.

Beautiful! He will treasure it always (as my kids love the embroidered stockings that a family member made them when they were young).

You really do amazing work!

What a great stocking!! So many personal and special touches that really make it one of a kind. Is the cat something special to Ryan? It is not standard Christmas fare.
