Hi everyone,
I'm a bit new to the whole DIY stuff and just discovered this site .. .it's awesome!!! Was wondering though if anyone's interested in doing a sew along for Holiday/Christmas stockings? I know the holidays aren't *that* close, but I've just discovered knitting  Shocked,  and am still a bit fascinated by the different ones, and have just started working on one. .. .anyone interested?

Hi Smiley thanks for your suggestion .. .. I tried that, and got 1 response. .. .I think the free patterns aren't that pretty, and I can't share my bought-for patterns, so I lucked out Sad But that's ok Smiley
Thanks though!. . you should give knitting another go though, it's pretty fun once you get into it!  Grin

I DEFINITELY need to sew a stocking for my boyfriend. He never had one at his house, but it's tradition here! I thought about the McCall's pattern. Next pattern sale I'm buying one of them, I think.

Oooh... I just love the stockings from the second link, humblestumble!  I think I may try my hand at adapting these myself, especially the one with the upturned-toe.  Thanks for the link! 

I'm definitely up for a holiday stocking sew-along.. perhaps it could be a "mixed craft"-along?  So our knitting friends can join in?

Soo... where do we go from here?  I've never participated in a craft-along before (if I had, maybe I'd have fewer unfinished projects littering my floor!).  Anyone else in?

you basically pick and choose the thing you're gonna do, work on it, ask if you have any questions and post your finished products Smiley

Sounds good! Do we need a completion date?  Like, everyone should post by 12/20?  (Sorry - that would be my anal retentive gene showing through  Grin

I hereby throw in my hat!  Err... stocking!

Or course!  If you can knit an entire stocking (and not just a short scarf sewed up on three sides, which is about my skill level.  Sort of a Christmas Tube Sock, if you will  Grin) more power to you!  You can sew, knit, decoupage, felt, whatever your heart desires!....  and I think we should keep it open for those of us who celebrate other winter holidays, as well.  For example, mine is sort of a mixed household, so I combine Christmas and Hannakah.  Since neither of us is particularly religious (we just like the traditions), I like to make stockings in blue & silver.  A couple years ago we bought a small Charlie Brown tree, decorated it with blue lights and silver balls, and topped it with a menorah rather than a star.  Needless to say, BF's mother about had a fit (not very Christian of us).  Oooh... where was I?  Oh yes... Holiday Stockings  Let's do it!

I'm thinkin we should probably post this as a thread in Craft-alongs? Because we aren't just sewing the stockings.

I started a Craft-A-Long for this instead of a sew-along. It seems to fit better Wink So, click your way on over there Wink
