Christmas Stockings: 18 Holiday Treasures to Knit | Jean Campbell
51 posts
Focusing solely on patterns and techniques for knitting Christmas stockings, these 18 eclectic projects are simple enough for the beginner and unique enough to interest experienced knitters who want to go beyond the traditional holiday stocking. Each step-by-step lesson is shown in full color and includes instructions and charts. Easy-to-knit alphabets are provided along with knitters graph paper for personalizing and dating each sock. Also included are miniature sock patterns for decorating packages and holiday trees.

What an amazing #sss swap! The books, the candy, the bookmarks, the infinity scarf, the tea, the socks, and the stocking covered in amazing book/reading pins. @Lovesbooks87 you went above and beyond! Thanks to @Avanders for hosting the #stuffedstockingswap. 😘

AmyG The stocking with the buttons! What a cute idea...I love it. 10mo
Lovesbooks87 Your welcome. I glad you like everything. I had a lot of fun putting your box together! 10mo

Lovesbooks87 @JoScho thanks! I thought it was a really cute idea. When I told the lady at the indie bookstore what I was doing with all of them she said it was a great idea and she was going to pass along the idea to other people! 😃 10mo

Post 2! Holiday stationary, more stickers, 2 3D puzzles, a set of beautiful kitchen towels and four packs of my favorite snack! Also don‘t forget all the Kindle books I got! Aletheia you are amazing and I am so very thankful for your generosity and kindness! You went above and beyond and please know how much I appreciate everything. This is without a doubt the highlight of my week! Thanks so very much! #sss #stuffedsockingswap ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Avanders Yay I'm so glad you like everything!! It was so fun finding everything 🥰🥰 I confess I bought some of those Brami snacks to try .. I .. do not feel the same way about them 😜But I found a friend to pass them on to. 😁 🎄♥️🎄♥️🎄 10mo
JoScho @Avanders lol yes I love them but they surely aren‘t everyone‘s cup of tea. You got me some flavors I haven‘t even tried before and I love them! 9mo
Avanders @JoScho oh yay! I love trying new flavors, so I'm glad I found some for you! 😄 9mo

Oh my goodness! I am spoiled! This is post 1 because I couldn‘t fit everything in one picture! So much amazing candy, vintage Santa book box, fabulous stocking, adorable oven mitt with cookie mix, candle, two pairs of socks, chapstick, super cute stocking stickers and of course the stocking is awesome but hidden under all the candy-fuzzy fur at top and knitted look with reindeer! To be continued in next post! #sss #stuffedsockingswap ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Every Christmas season when I was growing up, my family would drive into Chicago, go see A Christmas Carol, and then head to what used to be Marshall Field‘s to look at the awesome window decorations. We always went home with at least one box of Frango mints. This was pre-internet, so Field‘s was the only place to find them. This year, as an early #stockingstuffer, my parents sent me a box. I haven‘t had one in years.
#seasonsreadings

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Awww I love to hear about everyone‘s traditions!! ❤️❤️ 10mo
CaitZ Now you've got me craving a box of Franco mints. We used to go to the Field's store in Oakbrook Mall and my parents would also buy a box at Christmastime. My grandmother would meet her sisters for lunch "under the clock" at the downtown store a least once a month. 10mo

My #stuffedstockingswap is out the door. Sorry it‘s not wrapped. The post office made me take off its wrapping paper or pay an extra $5 shipping. 😤😤😤😤

Bookzombie I‘m starting to think they are just looking for extra money. 🙁 10mo
Jilly6183 That is so arbitrary! Why on Earth does it matter if it's wrapped and how does $5 make it go from impermissible to permissable?! Bah humbug USPS 10mo
LibrarianRyan @Jilly6183 because the couldn‘t “see” it was a flat rate box. Even though it was the same size as the three others I mailed. 😠 10mo

oOArankaOo I signed up! Hopefully there'll be more Dutch partcipants :) 11mo
Chrissyreadit @Avanders I know it involved St Nickolas leaving Downey money to help a family. I think in shoes but maybe stockings? Have you read The Autobiography Of Santa Claus? It‘s soooo good! 11mo
Gissy Done! 👍 11mo
BethM @Avanders @Chrissyreadit I believe it became stockings in a bid to make it a little less catholic and a little more universal. Stockings can be associated with Xmas and Santa. 11mo

Gauging interest...

I'm thinking of doing an early-December-open stocking swap.. (December 6th, to be precise). Due to the early open, though, the timing would mean only in-country matches (ie no international shipping), and a pretty quick turnaround on sign ups... What do you think? Any Interest?

AsYouWish Interested! 11mo
oOArankaOo If it can be an internation in-country (e.g., in the Netherlands) too, then definitely!! 11mo
Avanders @TheBookKeepers cool.. like what requirements? You mean size-of-package? That'll be a choice... or..? Anyway, cool & thanks! ☺️🎄 11mo
Avanders @Chrissyreadit I know!! 😄😄 (I'm originally from Wisconsin 😁) 11mo
Avanders @LapReader @oOArankaOo right, Aranka's got it -- it's "in-country" as in, as long as 2+ people sign up from your own country, then you can be matched. I.e., 2 from Netherlands, great! 2 from Australia, word. If only one signs up, though, I won't be able to match. 11mo
TheBookKeepers Like minimum $ set to spend, # items required. Can it be books only or is it books plus goodies. Those type of requirements is what I was curious about 11mo
Avanders @TheBookKeepers ahh.. no minimum $$, but minimum pkg would be 2 books & 2 bookish goodies ... Though your question makes me think.. 🤔 would you be interested in a book only swap? 1 book minimum? 2? I can easily add that as an option. ☺️ 11mo
TheBookKeepers Nice I love gifting but also love being thrifty so min $ always scare me off! Being a stuffed stocking type I think non book goodies should be included, maybe a lower minimum of 1 book & 1 goodie would be more appealing & budget friendly! (Tho there‘s a good chance I‘ll prolly still go over 😂). Also would we be required to include a stocking? I think that‘d be cute to literally stuff a stocking. (edited) 11mo
Avanders @TheBookKeepers good idea! 1&1 will be the minimum. And stocking! Yes, I thought a stocking would be required...... but it could be any kind of stocking ... a full size, mini, a real sock of some Christmas variety (or even the pair 😜). Or to help w budget-conscious folks, maybe even a drawing or story about a stocking... somehow to include it. 🤗🤗 11mo
TheBookKeepers Yes I LOVE all of those ideas!!!! I adore swaps & Christmas ones the most! This idea is original and so exciting! Love your budget conscious add-ins! Makes it to where more ppl can participate & spread cheer! 😍 🎄 11mo
Avanders @TheBookKeepers 💞🎄🤗😘 11mo
Gissy Yes! 11mo
AsYouWish Yay!!! This sounds so exciting!!!! 11mo
AmyG Maybe let us write whether we celebrate Christmas or not. I do Hanukkah...so perhaps, gift without a stocking or socks (instead of a stocking). 11mo
Avanders @AmyG good thought! Thanks! .. I'd thought of it and included "just winter" too ☺️ but I hadn't thought about how the "stocking" aspect applied... I like the "socks" idea ☺️ @Gissy ??❣️ 11mo
kaysworld1 Yes, yes yes 😊 11mo

Congrats @Tiffy_Reads 🎉🎉. I cross-stitched and put these stockings together many years ago and they always have pride of place each Christmas! I did one for each of my sons also but they have left the nest and taken their stockings with them. 😁🤗♥️
