Can you believe it! We are on the Christmas Stocking Make-Along Knit Part 6, the last section. I have to say it's a little bittersweet. I've enjoyed this event so much I don't want it to end. But I'm also excited to see your completed stockings! And be sure to come back and share them again through the holidays. I know I can't wait to decorate this year now that I have two new stockings to display.

From the bottom of my heart I want to say thank you for joining me. This is my first time doing an event like this as well as recording a video in this way. I'm so new at this and I plan on getting better as I go, so thanks for joining me on this ride as I learn new skills. I know with everything I do the first few times are a little bumpy but trying is what matters. Just like learning to knit right? Our first projects were not perfect, but still an awesome accomplishment.
Be sure to also check out the crochet version and the schedule for this stocking HERE.
This pattern is currently available for purchase only on RAVELRY. The entire pattern is complete and in your library!
Once the event is over it will be for purchase on LoveCraft and Etsy as well.
