>This is a stocking I started last nigt for a class I am taking at a local yarn and knit shop. My family use to have lots of stockings made by the nuns in the area where I grew up. I am wanting to learn how to make stockings so I can copy those old patterns. The ones the family has are in serious need of repair. That won’t happen but I hope to at least be able to make a new set of the ones from my childhood so that my children can have them.
This one is fair isle but the ones from my youth are not they are the back and forth time. The name for that escapes me at this moment but i think it is intarsia. I may end up using this stocking as a Christmas gift for my children’s school teachers but we will see.
