A Big Sock for a Small Boy

I finished Kyle's Christmas stocking on Saturday. What does that mean? It means that I cranked out that sucker in under a week...Mad skillz....

It is the "Mix and Match Stocking" from the "Knit Christmas Stockings!" book. Unfortunately, the book is pretty much useless except for that pattern. The sock features a "peasant heel" which I am now a major fan of! It's so much easier than all that heel flap and gusset business. Google it, you'll see what I mean.

The argyle and stripes were not in the book, but I liked them so I drew up a chart for the argyle and put it in. A little argyle never hurt anyone, right?

Now Auntie Charity just needs to teach him how to stretch it out so Santa has to put more stuff in it to fill it up!
