What are you most proud of? The original of this pattern had a much curlier toe and more circular heel. I really wanted to use my very newly found and novice serging skills to stitch the outside of the stocking. After failing the first attempt at this miserably I still had the confidence to redraft the pattern and made adjustments to make it work for me. Thanks Amy for making the class enjoyable and understandable.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you are intimidated by your serger look no further than Amy's beginners class. Very well structured with lots of helpful advice. Not sure how I'd have learned so much about materials and tips and tricks without it to be honest. Ohhhhh and wooly nylon, just try some wooly nylon, it will be your new bestest friend!!

Yaaay! I'm glad you've been using your serger so much. That makes me very happy to hear. Thanks for making me a new stocking! ;) It's really cute. And yes- wooly nylon thread is the best stuff ever!
