Brand-New Here - But Here's My Stocking!

Hi y’all!
Brand-new to this forum, but I’ve been knitting for over 6 years. Now, that being said, I’ve never done socks or stockings before! :think:
So here’s the beginnings of the Christmas stocking I’m making for my 19-month-old boy.


The cuff is made out of Blue Sky Alpaca Bulky Natural in Polar Bear. I’ve been obsessed with Celtic knotwork cables for a LONG time, so I wanted to be adventurous!
I thought I’d be different and make the stocking part out of the same company’s organic cotton yarn in a really pretty green.
Is it awful?

That’s GORGEOUS! Nice work! Welcome to KH! :slight_smile:

Aww shucks, :aww: thanks! I’m so glad I found this forum! Woohoo!

I love Celtic cable work, it looks great. show more photos as you go. Welcome to KH, it is like a home away from home.

Very pretty cable work!

It’s beautiful! I want to see it when it’s done!

Wow, that’s going to be gorgeous! Can’t wait to see it finished!!!

Excellent cabling you have going there. :slight_smile:

How’s the stocking coming?

that is beautiful! I want to make my (pretty grown up!) kids stockings in the upcomping year - you have inspired me to get adventurous!

The cables look great! Can’t wait to see the stocking when it is finished!
