Tate's Stocking and Hello from Mr. Zero

This is late in getting done, but it's done, and that's the main thing. This is Tate's Stocking by Raise the Roof Designs (which is ME!) I designed and stitched this for my nephew, Tate, and I told him on the phone the other day that Santa was going to be able to fit LOTS of presents in this stocking. The pattern is $9.00 and available now. I stitched on 20 count Straw Linen by Weeks Dye Works in a combination of Perle Cottons by Weeks Dye Works and Crescent Colours. A few sleigh bell buttons by JABCo. finish 'er off. What-d'-ya-think?

"If you're wanting to buy me a cashmere sweater, which I assume you ARE, I usually take a medium. But the holidays are simply murder on my figure. Better get a large. And would it kill you to get matching socks?" -- Zero

As usual, you do not disappoint with your stocking pattern. I might have to add that one to my stocking pattern collection since I do 2-4 every year. Are you planning on doing at least one "companion" stocking?

Hi Theresa - the stocking is absolutely gorgeous! If there were someone to fill one for me, I'd do it! but, Chessie and Bailey don't shop....:(

I love the comments by "Zero!" - of course, they'd love a cashmere sweater and socks!

So beautiful. The colors and the composition of the elements in the stocking are just perfect! I am not a "stocking stitching kind of girl" but I know I will be buying this in the new year for me! Please do a companion one!

Take care,
