Almost every member of my immediate family has a Christmas Stocking knitted by me. (These aren't going to hang on the tree, I just put them there for their photo.) Since my neice and nephew are new parents, I thought they needed a stocking with their new titles on them as well.I used Nancy Lindberg's Christmas Socks pattern. Her pattern calls for stripes with different patterns like bells, elfs, snowmen, etc knitted in them. This time, I followed her pattern, but just did 8 row stripes. I love this pattern because it has an "after thought heel". The pattern also calls for worsted weight yarn and a size 9 needle (I used a size 8). It's a quick knit.
