FO: Hubby's Christmas Stocking!
After looking for stocking patterns, hubby finally bought me this book. It was called"Knit Christmas Stockings: 19 patterns for stockings and ornaments"

One of the patterns in there was for a Mix and match stocking. It tells you the basic pattern/construction but then gives you charts to mix and match as you wish. This is my first holiday stocking and of course, I sit here and pick out all the imperfections. It is a bit uneven in this pic but the pic isn't that good either. I still need to block it and knit a hanging loop. When I show my friends, they all go "that's a BIG stocking". Well yeah, the pattern says it should be 23 inches. This one is closer to 24 but still.

Opinions? Should I make more?

YES! It's awesome! Plus, the bigger it is, the more stuff Santa will need to put in it!

It's beautiful! If you need more then go for it!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
