2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Christmas Stocking - first time turning a heel! on: January 05, 2014 08:05:44 PM
My great grandmother knitted my family stockings when I was young, and we still have them. However, our family has outgrown the number of stockings we have available, and I was "contracted" to knit one for my niece, since I'm the only knitter in the family now. I found a pattern on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sparkling-sleigh-bells-stocking

What appealed to me about this pattern is that it looked fairly simple for someone who has been knitting for awhile, but has never turned a heel. I will admit that I had to unravel two or three rows because I thought the pattern wasn't right. It didn't make sense in my head until I got a few rows in and realized, oh... maybe I should listen to the pattern. I did have some problems with the heel - it's very tight compared to the rest of the stocking. I was pretty tense while the heel was being turned so may have been knitting tighter than normally. Otherwise, I totally recommend this pattern to anyone wanting to knit some nice big stockings for next Christmas! Smiley

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, I used exactly the same yarn and needle size as Yvonne because I wanted the shimmery effect. I added a pom pom I made using the same yarn afterward but unfortunately forgot to take a photo!
