since this christmas will be the first for my boyfriend and i...i thought i'd make him a handmade crochet stocking. because my mom, my dad, and i all have crocheted ones from my grandma...and now my boyfriend can have one at our house and it will fit in with ours (even though ours are red. lol)



i'm not done with it...i'm going to put his name on it and some type of christmas decor on the front (because that's how ours are) but i just thought i'd go ahead and post this since i was so excited

everything except the cream colored top part is just done in single crochet it was pretty easy...it just took a long time (i normally just knit...so i'm a lot slower at crocheting)

it's about 18in from top to bottom

Wow, that looks great!  I really like the colors.  How long did it take you?

I'm making my fiance a stocking this year (since we're engaged now, I figure it's time he has a stocking at my house), but I was too afraid to crochet one, so I'm using furry fabric for the body and crocheting the cuff with furry yarn.

it probably took me about six hours total. but i did it over a period of about a week in between studying and stuff.
