knittinglemonade, your stockings look so lurvely and fab!  Cheesy 

I'd be interested in any post-knitting elastic tips too. I imagine one could (tediously) weave in some same color (dyed?) narrowish elastic at the top and sew the ends together, making sure that the elastic is not too tight. . . But then I'm probably totally out of my gourd on this.  Huh  Undecided

Thanks for the compliments!

Glaistig, I think that your stockings turned out darling! Reading your blog, did you ever try shrinking your stockings? If you did, How did it go??

Looking on Eunny's blog, she added an elastic post-knitting too. It looks like she just added a thick elastic band behind her ribbing. If you go to her blog you can see how she did it. I might try it that way.

Finished my first one! I ended up with a completely different toe than what everyone else did. I kind of stopped reading the pattern and just winged it on the decreases, so the pattern meets over the top of my foot and toes, instead of running down the sides. I must not have been doing the decreases at the right points either, because I don't have a double line of orange with gray in the center--but I thought that made the toes look kind of like sandwich cookies. Overall I like the rounded shape better, so I'm going to call it a "pattern modification" and pretend that I meant it that way.  Grin

I started a new stocking once I learned about the phenomenon of "yarn dominance," and it's made an incredible difference already!

These stockings are way beyond my current ability, but I'm still curious: what is "yarn dominance?"  By the way, everyone's stockings look great!

You know, for kids.

I'm not good at explaining these things, but I'll try. Yarn dominance refers to which yarn is "dominant" in stranded knitting. If your contrast color is not dominant, it will be pulled into the main color and the motifs will be obscured--keeping the contrast color dominant helps the motifs to "pop" out more. When stranding, you need to keep your contrast color on top--by bringing the contrast color UNDER the main color, and the main color OVER the contrast color, as you pick the color to knit the next stitch with.

Oooh, I'm totally going to start these. I just ordered the book through my library system, and I'm running the LYS Wednesday evening. Still totally undecided on the colorway though, ahh!!

I finished!!! Finally and at long last, as it is now too hot in Atlanta to wear them.  Cry

Plenty of notes about modifications are on my blog: http://knitternatter.blogspot.com

I can't wait to see everyone else's finished stockings! Keep up the great work!

Wow, I just spotted this knitalong via "recent posts with pictures" and I have to say that I'm glad! Those stockings are absolutely amazing RepoRebo! They totally brought me out of craftster lurker status. The moment I saw them, I looked on my bookshelf to find that I have Folk Socks, so those are next on my fancy socks list. Awesome job!
