I had a special request for a stocking from Faythe for her sweetie, Toad. She sent me a line drawing of Toad's one-of-a-kind drawing with a few suggestions and I got busy.
Last year I made the foot part of the stocking realistic as the pattern called for. This year the foot got increasingly smaller as I knit each stocking. I think I like this short stubby one. You can see the difference between the original foot and the one used for this stocking by clicking here.
The finishing touch is the flannel liner. I wanted something masculine since it's a manly stocking.
And finally, for those who didn't notice the special, customized work on this stocking, here's a close-up. I have to admit, though it's a naughty stocking, I was quite proud when I was finished! I hope this stocking see's many years of use.
