Here's the group photo from last night's meetup
My sock is the blue one, Erica's is green, Michelle's is red and the brown one is Melissa's
Erica was kind enough to take a picture since my camera is loaned out.
And what's the point of knitting these socks if you can't prove it : )

So I only have one stocking to knit this year - so if anyone is interested - I will do commissioned stockings - check out my store at - I also have hand knit dishclothes.
If the vintage stocking pattern you are looking for isn't listed please send me an email I have several more to work from.

Thanks everyone for you comments.
Kristi to answer your question (sorry couldn't manage to figure out a way to email you back) the pattern is from a Fleisher's kit published in 1952. My aunt's mother-in-law made them for me, my brothers and all my cousins back in the 70's and 80's she hasn't knit for a few years and when she found out I was knitting she sent me the pattern so I could make them for my nephews. I'm just hoping none of my cousins want them for their kids... I'd feel guilty charging them but would have to do it anyway!
Here's a scan of the kits first page.

3 Stockings Finished

Aren't they cute! I laughed at myself because I knit them in age order - it probably would have been wiser to knit the two for Owen and Noah first since they need to be mailed.

Over the weekend

This is what I accomplished on Friday night - I was glad to have gotten past the bricks they seemed to be holding me up...

and this is what I finished between Saturday and Sunday - I'm hoping to have this one knitted by

tomorrow and then start weaving end in on Wednesday then just one more stocking and mittens before Christmas...

The Afghan is done with one day to spare

All I have to do is wrap it... so I measured it last night and apparently if you measure 44 inches and then knit 20 more rows that makes it 40 inches in total? So I"m not sure if I made my final dimensions as apparently I affected the time space continuum but what can you do?

Tonight I'm working on Noah's stocking I'm only to the bricks still and need to finish so I can start doing my other stuff - hopefully the stocking won't be affected by the time space continuum.

Almost there

I'm up to 44 inches with afghan that needs to be done Saturday - which means hopefully (considering what else I have to finish by the end of the month) that I'll finish it tonight!
Then I can resume Noah's stocking - start and finish another stocking and my mom's mittens...
