This is a little different from the usual baby knitting that I see here, but I wanted to post them. I started the Greene Mountain Spinnery's pattern for a knitted Christmas stocking this time last year and I wanted to do Alex's first but we still hadn't decided on his name when I got the pattern so I started on a replacement for Dante. I had crocheted a stocking for him a few years back and really didn't like it. I used Lambs Pride worsted wool in a brick red for Dante's and Mediteranian Olive with Silver Sliver as the accent color. It took one skein of each and I just ran out of the silver but was able to make it work by knitting the baby's stocking a little shorter than his brother's.
Dante's stocking took a year because I was in the first trimester of my pregnancy and just too darn tired to work on it. But I finished Alex's in just about a week. It went really fast and I enjoyed. A little side note: I discovered that the stocking I knit turned out to be the perfect size for a knee high sock so I'm thinking about making a pair for myself. Anyway, the tops are hemed for re-enforcement so that they can be hanged and filled, and not stretch all out. I like 'em!
