What are you most proud of? The pattern called for size 5 needles and I used Size 11 needles because that's what I had. Miracle happened and these Jumbo Stockings were created The Reindeer one for my son and the Snowman one for my daughter.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 wanted 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 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 before Christmas 2011.I am so proud of these. 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.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This Chritmas Stocking is pretty easy to Knit. Fair Isle Knitting. use small amounts of colored yarn and the work goes faster. 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 Personalized Gifts Starting with little ones in the family to all Adults . Happy knitting
