Yarn Along ~ Christmas Stocking


 I have interrupted my baby blanket knitting (like that's never happened before) to crochet a Christmas stocking for a friend's new great granddaughter. While I prefer the look and feel of a knitted stocking, crochet is much faster. This stash yarn is finally leaving the building after several years residence here!
This is based on the "Snowman Stocking" pattern, minus the snowman, at http://crochetmagazine.com/newsletters

I've just begun reading Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman. It's a pleasure to read about this charming main character who faces her difficult young life with hope and positivity. No whining!

I think your stocking is actually rather lovely :)
Indeed the look of knitting vs crochet is why I chose to knit mine (and at such as small gauge too)- but I still think this looks nice :)

Lovely stocking - great that some of the stash yarn has found a new home this Festive season it is perfect.
Enjoy the bag blankets.

Thanks so much for reading my novel. I hope you're enjoying CeeCee's adventures!

I'm in love with your boxers, what a fantastic photo of them.

I loved Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt. It reminded me a little of The Secret Life of Bees.

I just started a pair of striped fingerless mitts for me. In the evenings I read and just started Janet Evanovich, "Explosive Eighteen"

I know I'm digging back a long way but I listened to Saving CeeCee Honeycutt as an Audible download and loved it! Thanks for reminding me about it. Thank you also, for stopping by my blog and saying hello.
