Friday Favorites


For this week’s “Friday Favorites” may I present an ornament I’ve just finished making!

This “mini-sized” Christmas Stocking measures about 4 inches from top to toe, and it was so much fun to knit. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out – especially because it’s been a long time since I’ve made anything with a charted design and I was a little worried about it.


Julie of “Little Cotton Rabbits” designed the pattern and you can find it by clicking here. Julie is an extraordinarily talented lady, who knits the most delightful little rabbits and a whole assortment of other wonderful things!

The tiny bear above just happened to be in my stash of craft supplies. I have a big box of odds and ends that I find on sale and put away for future projects. They really come in handy! This little fella was just the perfect size to snuggle in a mini stocking.

Now that you’ve seen him, I’ll put him on the tree 🙂

Once the holiday rush is over, I think I’ll start making a few friends for him . . . for next Christmas!
