Wool and the Gang’s Crazy Sexy Wool is so luxurious to work with, nice and chunky and soft, and works up super quick. I must say I struggled with deciding which colors to use, they’re all so beautiful, but this Eucalyptus Blue had to come home with me.
Once the stocking is made, it’s time to embroider on top of the stocking your personalized letter. The pattern has a chart of all the letters, so that you don’t have to be a genius mathematician to get the size and shape of your letters right. Embroidering on top of your finished work is such a simple way to “cheat” on knitting a color work piece, because you don’t have to knit it INTO your work, but ON TOP of your finished piece.
Everyone in my family, exept Simon the Cat, already has a favorite stocking. And even though we don’t give our favorite purr machine gifts for Christmas, this cozy stocking is a gift in itself! I knew he would know exactly what to do with it…SNUGGLE!
