This will be Ella's second Christmas, and already I can't wait! She's much more self-aware, quite mobile, and able to tear paper to her heart's content (when she isn't trying to eat it.) I had only been knitting a couple of weeks when Christmas rolled around last year, so there were no knitted Christmas goodies. But I had a dream.... and an image in my head. When I couldn't find a pattern to match my picture of a felted Christmas stocking, I just decided to go for it, and made up a pattern of my own.
I haven't finalized the name on the cuff yet, but here you go, Ella baby. It's Ella's Felted Christmas Stocking, made with love and a prayer in every stitch, and the pattern written up to share with anyone else who dreams of felted stockings for the loves in their own lives.
((If you end up using the pattern for your own stockings, I'd appreciate a shout (and a link to pics?) Good luck, and have fun!))
