I'm getting ready for xmas a bit early...but i might as well. im making 4 stockings with different letters. i used real cheap acrylic yarn bc i figured i might as well since no one will be wearing them, but they look so darn cheap. oh well. and then i bought cashmere blend yarn for the arm warmers. theyre my own pattern...kind of. i copied them from urban outfitter's/delia's arm warmers.

1) I don't think your stockings look cheap at all, at least not in the picture.
2) Your armwarmers rock!

you can never start making christmas stuff early enough! i've already done so, too. it's only weird to knit thick and warm wool yarn in the midst of summer... sometimes, at least.

What pattern did you use for the stocking?  It's gorgeous and doesn't look cheap at all!

thanks everyone. the stocking pattern was from holiday knits. heres a pic of the book. there are a few pics of the projects inside, but not this stocking.  http://www.knitpicks.com/books/books_display.aspx?itemid=30694

and the arm warmers are so simple. i started with k1p1 ribbing for a few inches and then i went to the cable pattern which is fairly common. i couldn't find the pattern online, but i had it in a few books and magazines. i actually just made another that is really similar to the urban outfitters one. the cashmere one is too fancy for me, so this one i did in wool. and i used the seed stitch, which looks so cool. urban outfitters has a matching scarf, and i think i might try that next. the arm warmer knitted up really fast, i did the one in about 2 hours. i figured the seed stitch would slow me down quite a bit, but it still wasn't bad.
