For 24 years, I've been knitting stockings for my four
kids, a DIL, a stepgrandson, mother, etc. I've never made myself one, until Cat Bordhi designed one last year for her grandson, Charlie. Charlie's stocking has treat pockets for reindeer and Santa treats, which have disguised the instep increases quite nicely. It is felted, using chunky weight yarn, on size 11 or 13 needles. It is a very quick knit - I think mine was done in two days, and the third day I worked in the ends pre-felting. It took
another week to get around to felting it.
