Theresa's Christmas party, over at Knitting Underway, inspired me to share some of our, shall we say, eclectic Christmas decor. I knit these Christmas stockings quite a few year ago from the Christmas Socks pattern from Beth Brown Reinsel's Knitting Traditions (page down to see the pattern). One of the reasons I think this is a cool pattern is that you can knit a big Christmas Stocking, or real, wearable Christmas socks. I have the yarn for the socks too, but have yet to make them.
Yes, two of our Christmas socks are actually mittens - it seemed like a good idea at the time, though they're sort of odd shaped mittens. However, they do hold a cd, some candy and a tangerine, which is the point on Christmas morning.
I should be making cookies, sending cards, shopping, practicing music for church and a million other things. Before I do, I want to wish each of you a joyous holiday season. Thanks for reading my blog!
