I decided to make an Advent stocking for a very good friend (Miss Maddie's beloved Auntie Kellie, who is a very special member of our extended family). Last Christmas I made up an Advent calendar for her using a purchased one I had, but I found the tiny little pockets very restrictive when it came to the size of the daily gifts I could fit in. So I crocheted this nice roomy stocking (my own design) and cross-stitched Kellie's name on the cuff. This stocking is a bit over 30cm (12") long and 23 cm (9") wide at the top. It stretches out to accommodate loads of little gifts of different sizes and shapes. I am very pleased with this finish. It's the first thing I have actually finished this year, if you don't count JOF pages as finishes (but then, I do!).
I've also got a new pic of Maddie to share.
