Knit Christmas Stockings
Knitted Christmas Stockings
I remember the Christmas stockings my mother knitted for us long ago, and it isn't hard, as they were passed on to me and bring back great and fond memories of when she was alive, and the way she always gave in numerous little ways like this. She was extremely crafty.
Anyway, knitted Christmas stockings are unique from other stockings, and while not always as loud as some of the other types of materials used to make Christmas stockings, definitely have their own flavor, and when they're made in a quality and interesting manner, are a great addition to the family history and Christmas décor. I know they look great when they're put out at Christmas every year, and never fail to generate positive comments and feedback. But even if they didn't, the love included in making them is worth setting them out no matter what.
Below I've included a number of photos of knit Christmas stockings just to give an idea on the tremendous variety to choose to make or buy out there, and to see what style may appeal to you when thinking of who you are buying or knitting them for.
Some will inspire you immediately, and others will, I'm sure, generate a - Huh? No matter though. That's the same with anything we look at, and some of these will surprise you and definitely cause you to react one way or the other as to whether it's a Christmas stocking pattern you would want to knit or buy.

Traditional Knit Christmas Stockings

Variety of Unique Knit Christmas Stockings
I struggled a bit when I first saw these knit Christmas stockings, probably because they looked a little old fashioned and unattractive at first glance, but they grew on me a little bit, although they wouldn't be my first pick for design, pattern or color.

What they do have going for them is a homemade and personal feel; something that is very relevant and important during the Christmas holiday.
