I finally did it!
I finally made a Christmas stocking for myself after all of these years of wanting one when the holidays roll around. I’m so excited to hang this jumbo stocking of my dreams up for the holidays, and the good news is you can make one too! I grabbed all of the supplies to make the Fireside Christmas Stocking when I visited Michael’s Stores and found this gorgeous Lion Brand Yarn Thick and Quick!
I wanted my stocking to be big and beautiful, so when it came time to choose a yarn from the yarn aisles at Michael’s, I went with Lion Brand Thick & Quick. There is a choice of the regular balls of yarn, but I also found larger bonus bundles that had a lot more yardage! Perfect for the main colours of my stocking.
Take a peek at this other amazing Lion Brand Yarn Kit >> TAKE ME TO THE MULBERRY LANE CARDIGAN.
