Every year I pick up my mom's stocking to bring home so Santa can fill it at my house.  But that leaves mom w/o a stocking to decorate her mantle which is no good.  No good at all.  So, I made her this one to hang by her chimney with care.  



It's all vinyl (lined with felt), with metal grommets and a real shoe lace that's embellished with snowflake decorations.



Of course Santa will sneak a little something into this stocking, too.  After all, my mom has been on the nice list for YEARS.

This year it's hung by my chimney with care with my pups' new stockings and those I made for me and The ManFlesh in years past.

Thanks so much!  I struggled with trying to be realistic, but also practical for a stocking as well as looking like what the average person thinks a skate looks like vs what it really looks like.  Wink

At first glance, I seriously thought this was a real ice skate.  I was like, "How does that hang, it looks so heavy!"  AWESOME job.  Your mom is lucky to have a kid like you!

Love it! it's just toooo cute!

Funny, I don't remember being absentminded...

I need a skein (two would be great) of Knit Picks Gloss Bare sock weight to finish a shawl.

You're so sweet!  I don't even think it's the best stocking I've made which is around a dozen.
