I'm in! My brother is getting married in April, so I'm making stocking for him and his fiancee.
This will be my brother's:
And here's my progress so far:
The photo doesn't really do justice to the work. First, there's a 10-row cuff of dark green that will be folded over, leaving just one row of the dark green at the top. It's knit flat and then seamed, which is why it looks so huge. It's my first fair-isle, and I think it went ok -- there's a bit of puckering at the edge of 1 or 2 rows from my tension being off, but I'm hoping that it will even out in the seaming. I also added an extra row of the white at the top and bottom of the pattern, so that the most difficult rows of Fair-Isle were done as knit rows (the chart had them as purl rows).
I'm using Lopi, while the pattern called for Wool-Ease, so the stocking will be a bit larger than the pattern. I hope it's not going to be too big ... can a stocking really ever be too big, though?
I've also never knit socks before, so the short rows and picking up stitches will be new to me as well.
