My Christmas Stocking

Here's my Christmas stocking!

It took about 3 days to complete (working just about an hour each day). It is 15.5 inches long. A few nice long sticks of candy should fit nicely in there! This is using the Lion Brand Holiday Homespun colors. The challenging part was the heel of course. I may just get some cheap yarn and knit a bunch of practice heels until I get comfortable with it. I really like how the stocking came out and I'm considering adding something else to it as a decoration. I'm going to try my hand at making a snowflake, and if it comes out right, I will add it to the stocking (if it looks right on it). I also have to add the loop for the stocking to be hung by the chimney (with care, of course!)
