Thanks for starting this Dustina!
I'll do my best to help make a few.

Where do we send them, and what's the deadline?

I will honor my commitment to make mini stockings. I don't use DPNs so I have to find my old pattern with straights that I can modify a bit. I also don't have any good holiday-looking yarn right now. Our local craft store has Homespun available in holiday colors but I don't care to work with that yarn. I will order some tomorrow from Knitting Warehouse and will get going on this project.

Your intention to help our deployed troops is really admirable.

Thank you! No need to order special yarn we are accepting any colors : )

Last year we made stockings for the troops but this year they will be going to Children here in Coshocton. It is basically a factory town and a lot of people have been hit hard with the economy...

Can you use two circular needles? I wrote this pattern last year for that method. It's an easy one and doesn't involve a regular sock heel.

It WILL need to be made larger for this project though. I'm thinking maybe casting on 50 and adjusting the decreases as I go. Hmm... tell you what I'll play with it this week and see what needs to be done to alter it and share it.

Hi Dustina! Just wanted to let you know I started one last night and am almost done with it. My cats have been crazy making me, so it's a good small project to be able to put down when you have to go rescue one of them from pending disaster or clean up from marking.
they don't all have to be in xmasy colors do they? Last year I did some in regular colors that were kinda nice.

Thank you and yep they can be in any colors

It must be something in the air, my cats are not marking but they are tearing stuff down from tall shelves...that usually they never attempt to get on. We were woke up very early this morning with one trying that...I have one that steals yarn too so I gotta always remember to put my projects up

You can count this as my first one!


I left a tail at the top because I forgot how to do a crochet chain. Maybe someone can do them after I mail them to you?

Thank you! I got another one done last night at Isaiah's football practice too!

The chain is optional...so far I'm not sure if anyone has added one...but if it needs one I can do it once I get them

915 Stockings left to knit
