Stockings to Stuff

While visiting Angie at Le monde de Sucrette the other day, I came across her pattern for Little Christmas Socks and immediately decided to try it out.

I made the first one with leftover scraps of cotton yarn. The second one is from acrylic. And the third from cotton yarn. I wound up with stockings in large, medium and small sizes.

Angie's instructions were so easy to follow. And best of all, it is a simple pattern that is quick to work up. She put some really cute embellishments on hers which I haven't done yet. I will definitely be making a bunch more.

Hope your week is off to a great start.

These are darling T! They would be perfect for stuffing full of wonderful things.
I loved reading about your time with your friends. I love it when my gal pals and I all get together. It doesn't happen as often as we would like, but just like you said, it doesn't matter how long it has been, we always just take up where we left off.
