The stocking that ate christmas...
So apparently, when reading a pattern, I need to pull out my measuring tape to see how big the item will really be. Since my stocking is slightly larger then the pattern said, but looks to me much larger then the one in the photo. It was supposed to be 7" across the leg and 22" long - mine is 8 1/2" across the leg and 25" long. Not a huge difference, but compared to what was in my head - its huge!! Now that it is almost done, I am not changing it - and the other stockings that I am planning on making will be about the same size. It just makes me giggle a little when I see it. And there is no way that the stockings will ever be full again :)
