Crochet X-mas Stocking

So I hoped my husband would have finished the mantle before X-mas and I could hang some X-mas stockings from it, but unfortunately we just finished plastering the walls, so stockings hanging from the mantle will have to wait for next year (although last year I was pretty sure we would have stockings hanging from the mantle this year). The good thing is: bookshelves are finished! Great place to hang stockings from, too!

I made this adorable little stocking that my four year old wants to wear all the time, so I hope it's still worth to look at as X-mas arrives. You can find a pattern for it here.
The other stocking I made last year. A pattern for the flowers (African Flowers, they're called) you can find in my tutorials.

  1. So cute! As much as I love a beautiful mantel, bookshelves are much more important! (Says the English Literature major!) ;-)

    If you're interested, I'd love to have you join my Yarn Fanatic Party! http://philwife.blogspot.com/2014/12/yarn-fanatic-party-17.html

    1. Hahaha! I think you are absolutely right about that! Can't wait for my husband to finish all of our bookshelves (actually he's making four, that reach from floor to ceiling, but there's just one finished). All the books are stacked in our bedroom now and although I really love my books, I don't want all of them in our bedroom. Bedroom is for sleeping, bookshelves are for books.
      Thanks for inviting me to your party!

  3. These are so charming! My sweet maternal grandmother taught me to crochet as a girl and I always think of her when I see pretty crocheted work! I would love to have you link at our Creating Christmas party:
