  • Great inspiration! I AM trying to finish a stocking (now late for a 12/01/10 first birthday) in time for the U.S.P. to get it to North Carolina for (a few days before) Christmas. Your 1.5 days gives me renewed hope, as do the wonderful stockings knit by the Montana ladies.
    Thanks so much.

  • I whipped out two of these in 48 hours on a knitting cruise . . . except I still can’t figure out the darn duplicate stitch! So that’s left me with argyle-less, name-less stockings.
    Still, they’re really cute.

  • Hey….how did you know I’ve procrastinated right down to the nub? I only have two stockings to make, after all, so technically I could wait another three days.

  • I love your precise mathematical calculations. 6.6 stockings. As a scientists this makes me happy. πŸ™‚

  • The thought of whipping up 6.6 stockings between now and Christmas makes me want to lie down with a cold cloth on my forehead. Except I don’t have time for that either. Too many @#^*$@ Christmas cookies to bake for tomorrow.
    Maybe next June.

  • Talia is right, the accuracy of 6.6 sox really makes me happy! However, that now means I have NO excuses for why DH’s DNA scarf isn’t done, DS’s Riff socks aren’t done, and the Sunday Market shawl for the other DS’s tutor isn’t done. Can I jump into a backwards timewarp for a few days? Please?

  • Great inspiration for next year…. I do love a great looking stocking…

  • The stockings are lovely! and yes, i would *totally* sign up for such a class. Calling all intrepid knitters in my area! πŸ˜‰

  • I’m thinking, 2011, well, maybe anyway!

  • Awesome,ladies. Remember, an orange takes up a lot of space

  • Love it! Love the whole idea of it! It almost makes me want to knit one right now . . . but I am going to lie down until that feeling passes. I do not have time to knit one of these before Christmas, no matter how little time it would take. But, I am very tempted. Hey, I think I could get one done by Christmas 2011!

  • i will not knit a christmas sock now
    i take this oath in public

  • SO impressive!!
    What a great line-up…the stockings AND the knitters! Looks like the kind of group that smiles and makes room for another knitter in the circle πŸ™‚

  • Trying to finish the son’s kilt hose…they’re as big as a Christmas stocking…he’s 6’4″ and wears a size 15 shoe. Just turned the second heel, just half a yard to go! Wish I could borrow an enterprising knitter for a few hours!

  • What a super pic! Love those stockings.

  • I think I would go crazy trying to fit anything into the 10 days or so before Christmas!

  • need to buy Knitting Outside the Lines
    both local chapters and lys out of stock
    com– ooooooonnnnn!
    need book!!please advise where I can lay my knitty hands on one

  • Is it just my imagination or is that group of stocking knitters remarkably tall??
    Maybe it’s just the really impressive work they’ve done making them appear so upstanding….

  • Oh those are impressive, indeed!! I must think of a recipient so I can make one of those. My kids are all grown and fully “stocking’ed”, grand-kids all seem to already have stockings too… I WILL find a way to make one of these, somehow, someday. πŸ™‚
