The stockings will be hung by the chimney with care

Here is the Jerry stocking - Schoolhouse Press Knit-Along #1.

I made this for the DH who refuses to wear knits of any kind as they make him too warm. What is a knitter to do? A Christmas stocking, to be brought out and placed on the mantle for goodies from Santa Claus. DH has nothing but overboiled resentment for the time and concentration this took.

KnitPicks Palette (ivy, red, cream), size 3 needles.

And one for me - the Fireside Stocking - Kate Gilbert, Interweave Holidays 2007. Made as part of the class offered by Nana's Knitting Shop.

Cascade 220, size 6 needles.

Once I got the colors within range of what I wanted, this became an exciting project. The temptation is to keep going through the rounds to see the gradient but I had to put it aside for a bit in order to make the mittens (see below).

I'm not a fan of the yellow through the first set of red snowflakes so I won't repeat that going up the leg.

Come to Indy and teach my knitting class... I am unworthy!
