My mom loves Christmas - it's her favourite time of the year.  She has so many decorations that she starts putting them up on November 1st so that she can get them all up in time!

She prefers handmade decorations, too, which is awesome. ^_^

Mom has made stockings for all of us (though, some of my younger nieces and nephews, as well as my fiance, are currently on a waiting list for them).  She makes them out of felt (from kits), with sequins and such... they're quite beautiful!  But! She always over-buys the stocking stuffers.  For the stocking-deprived and for the overflow, she's been using fabric bags, and I thought that this year I'd make her something more festive!

This was made on the second-to-biggest round loom in the Knifty Knitter round loom set (the green one), with Loops & Threads Charisma (almost a full ball of the green, and about 3/4 of a ball of the white)

The reason I used the bigger loom is because I've made this kind of stocking on a round loom before.  Last time I used the smallest one (the blue one), and the finished Christmas stocking ended up fitting me perfectly!  I was hoping to avoid that this time... you know, for pride's sake.

Fabulous! And, it really does make for an interesting hat! You should wear it around and see how long it takes for people to notice that it's really a stocking Smiley

Thanks everyone!

I discovered last night that the two colours I was going to use for my hat are the only two colours of this yarn I don't have in my stash already.  What are the chances?? 

I guess it means I'll just have to keep making the ones for my mom until I get to the store, then. Tongue

Is it possible to become addicted to a pattern?
