Christmas Stockings Set of 5

Set of 5 Christmas stockings

This set of 5 Christmas Stockings was just finished today. I finally got the setting in my camera right and the light was perfect when I took the photo. I can't believe how clear it is! 






Green Christmas stocking with snowmen
Blue Christmas stocking with penguins





 















Grey Christmas stocking with dark blue reindeer

This might be my new favorite design: Grey has always been one of my favorite colors, and the combination of dark blue, red, white and grey works very well, I think. 

Stockings are for sale in my Etsy shop: Gigi82Knits

Some more Christmas Stockings (in April...)

I've been very good, knitting lots of Christmas stockings (orders placed through my Etsy shop Gigi82Knits) .

Snowman, Polar Bear and Reindeer stockings
These colors work really well together, and the different patterns distinguish them from each other. 















New purple snowman stocking and hockey stick stocking
This set of 4 has two new designs, a purple stocking and hockey sticks as a pattern on the green stocking. I struggled a little with the design of the hockey sticks (I'm not a fan of adding stitches by hand later on), but it turned out nice.
Classic design stocking green and red with penguins









I love these two penguins stockings! Such a cute pair! The darker green looks very Christmassy, though I like the regular green I have as well. 














My next projects will be some more custom orders, I hope. I also have to finish an order of a set of 5 within the next few days. Just yesterday I drew new patterns, an angel and a gingerbread man and I can't wait to try these out on stockings, possibly large stockings again, or "Merry Christmas" stockings.

Preview Christmas 2013: Huge Stockings!

Let's face it, 2013 is 1/4 over already! Which means another quarter year and I'll start getting busy with my Etsy shop again. Time to prepare! I have finished this big Christmas stocking:




It is 30 inches long, 8.5 inches wide. I used thicker yarn so it did not take too long to knit (the usual 15 hours I guess). There is room to expand at the top, a name could be added. I have two rows of animals walking on this stocking, so it can be hung up either way. 

It was inspired by one of my "students" from the library. I thought her how to knit stockings and she brought in chunky yarn. Her stocking looked great, and I really like the look of this big, sturdy stocking as well. 



 

 This is the big stocking next to my regular 22" stocking. Quite a difference! I would think some people can put it it at their front door, make it very visible. Or there would be one lucky kid getting lots of goodies...


 This stocking will be for sale in my Etsy shop soon and many more: Gigi82Knits on Etsy
