Itty Bitty Christmas Stocking

Over the years my parents put up two Christmas trees.  One was the normal tree with the usual type of ornaments.  The other was my Mom's "Funny Tree".  It was a small tree that sat on a table top.  She called it her Funny Tree because she put small, unusual ornaments on it...anything that caught her eye.  I tried to come up with one new ornament each Christmas.  In Germany I found a tiny wooden nativity scene that was only about 2" tall.  She had a beautiful silver angel from Mexico.  There was also a little plastic Snoopy with his tongue stuck out.  For me, this was the tree that I liked best.  This year I decided to knit a small Christmas stocking.


Pattern:  Mini Christmas Stocking
a free pattern from Little Cotton Rabbits

   4" from top to toe, not including the loop for hanging

Needles: US #1.5 / 2.5 mm

Yarn:  Sandnesgarn Lanett
#4128 cardinal
#1001 white
(a few yards of each)

  A quick and fun pattern, well-written and easy to follow.

RANT:  If you notice that the line spacing is weird on any blog posts I have Blogger to thank.  Lately it's been a battle to make the lines stay put.  Sometimes an extra line shows up, sometimes line breaks disappear.  There seems to be no rhyme or reason to when or why this happens and it's certainly taking the fun out of blogging.  If anyone has a solution, (this problem is sooooo frustrating) I'd love to hear from you.  Thanks.   joanne @ jconklin . com
