I liked making the Christmas stocking so much I made three of them. One for Reese, one for Little Sister, and one for her husband Swimming Man. It was comfort knitting, that's a lot like comfort food but not fattening at all.
I've been asked about the pattern by Short Old Lady (go visit her blog, she makes beautiful lacy things) and I've tried to Google it. It's not on Ravelry and I can't find anything at all about the designer. I got it free at my LYS when I bought the yarn (remember it was a long time ago) and the LYS has since been sold.
Anyway, I'll share what I know about it and maybe someone else can find out more. It's really a beautiful stocking and very nice to knit. It's a 24 row repeat but easy to remember where you are and it's knit just like a really big sock.
The pattern is called Holly-Aran Christmas Stocking by Pat Clockedile copyright 1991. It was distributed by A Likely Yarn in Yarmouth Maine. And that's all I know.
If anyone finds out anything more, let me know.
