As mentioned before, I loved the idea of incorporating the motif from Elise's first Christmas outfit into her stocking. Since I never found an exact stocking I wanted to make, this was the perfect solution. After I originally posted about possible stocking options, I did stumble upon another great stocking. Enter the Falling Snow Stocking by Jennifer Hoel.
I used elements from the Falling Snow Stocking, along with inspiration from her 1st Christmas sweater dress to create a stocking that will (hopefully) be with her for a lifetime.
It's a bit more flashy than our stockings, but that's ok. I figure they don't have to match. And, when we have more to add, we can have a whole eclectic collection of handknit stockings.
Yarn: Cascade 220, Cream and Red (about .7 skeins of each)
I have some big news that I am *SO* excited to share with you- stay tuned later this week.
