Knitted Jumbo Christmas Stocking

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I have had a good weekend, went to another wedding dress appointment for my sister. She is getting married about a year from now. She did find a dress and I am so happy for her, it is beautiful. I also did some shopping and caught up with my mom and sister for lunch with her friends who came to the dress appointment. I am happy it is feeling cooler now, and I am looking forward to upcoming holidays, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas, I have just completed one of the Christmas stockings way ahead of time. The pattern I used was from Ravelry called Jumbo Christmas Stocking in a Jiffy - Striped by Jennifer Jackson. I am so happy to be done knitting the first stocking, now I can start the next one and have them both finished in time for Christmas.




Knitting the loop
To make the loop to hang the stocking, I casted on three stitches, then knit until the piece was 14 inches long, then just looped it into the back of the top of the stocking once I folded the top over.

What knitting projects are you working on? I am thinking of knitting something for Halloween coming up, since it has gotten cooler out I feel more inspired.
