What are you most proud of? My son liked it so much he said mom knit a stocking that will go from upstairs fireplace to downstairs fireplace. He was outsmarting me and Santa to fill that long stocking!!. In 2010 when my son had a son I knitted the Reindeer stocking for my Grand son and my Son In Law as well. They were a HIT last year. Now in 2011, my daughter announced she was pregnant by saying Mom are you ready to knit another stocking. So here is another BIG snowman stocking for my new Gran daughter born just in time a week Christmas 2011.I am so proud of these Stockings Still need to knit one for the dog with improvised dog bones instead of Reindeer or Snowman. Proud of my Knitting masterpiece, Cable Sampler Afghan with very difficult cables including one called cables from hell. shared that one too at the Knitting Convention in 2005. Love to knit Tea Cozies and of Course baby Layettes with Cables and lace.

Make sure you Enlarge the Graphs. give it a month to complete the Project. small size or Big size the effort is the same. you can use Shiny Yarn and Beads to as embellishments. top stich the name after finishing. Makes great Personlised Gifts Starting with little onse in the family to all Adults . happy knittingf1
