I have been having a lot of fun with these and find that a Christmas stocking makes a quick and ideal knitted gift for literally anyone as it serves as a keepsake & decoration and does not put anyone in the awkward situation of being forced to wear something that might be well-meaning but not to the recipients tastes.
Author Gwen Steege has gathered together patterns for 11 different "full size" stockings as well as mini-socks, felted heart, star and tree ornaments, miniature felted mittens and socks and some cute-as-a-button ski sweater ornaments in Knit Christmas Stockings, 2nd Edition: 19 Patterns for Stockings & Ornaments - and it isn't too late to produce a few of these attractive projects for this year's celebration!
If you're new to sock knitting, have no fear. Gwen's also included a wealth of tips and instructions about every aspect of knitting that you need to know to turn out these projects, everything from choosing the correct yarn for a felting project and knitting a gauge swatch, to various stitches, abbreviations, how to turn a heel, changing yarns, following a knitting chart and much much more!
There are two problems specifically with the Kindle version of Knit Christmas Stockings, 2nd Edition: 19 Patterns for Stockings & Ornaments, for which I have subtracted a star.
● References to various charts given in the directions are highlighted in red, but they are for page numbers that do not apply to the Kindle version and are not interactive. You will have to hunt.
● There is no Index, so while there is a wealth of tips, techniques and other information, it is scattered throughout the volume, not easy to find when required
Grandmas $0.02 - These gorgeous stockings and ornaments will keep your needles flying on their way to becoming family treasures! There's still plenty of time to turn out a sock or two!

I've not made socks before so this is a great way to get me mastering the heal turns. And as I spin my own yarn this is a good way to use up all those odd skeins of yarn.
