as children my parents made our stockings, so i think the idea is great, however i wouldn't buy it as i don't like the one on it, if you custom made them with childrens names, christmassy pictures different sizes e.t.c then i def would think about it
yeah you could do a variety easy for me to say as i'm not the one doing it, but i do like the pastel colours, you could do a light blue with silvery snowflakes, or a light pink with silvery snowflakes, or a little snowman, or a present or some holly i'm not that much of a fan of red and green.
I'm with you Cookie about red/green for Christmas. I quite like the understated pastels, but that doesn't mean I can't make it more festive.
And thanks for coming back Laura (love the name, immediately makes me think of Sunday mornings with the smell of roast dinner!) I'm just starting a knit-in snowflake, to see if it works. I'm thinking at mo that it might be too small too look like anything, but you never know.
Also if any of you still care... would you prefer to spend less for a more acrylic-y 'wool' or more for bamboo/100% of the real thing?
