E & E Inspired Argyle Stocking

DSC_0044Numero quatro!…or in other words, Stocking number 4!

I “borrowed” a few elements from Elegance and Elephants (E&E) to make this stocking. First, she posted about making this adorable (yes, I spell out the whole word…my generation was taught how to spell) argyle polo shirt for her little man. And what’s more manly than argyle!? Seriously. I dare you to think of something…besides camo, because I refuse to have camouflage stockings hanging next to my floral ones.

Nothing. Absolutely nothing is more manly than argyle. I may have a tiny weakness for argyle too, and hubby would find that out if he ever wore a knit sweater.


Anyways………….I was lost in a day dream for a second. Oh Hello! 😉

Where was I?

Ah yes, argyle. I love argyle, but never tried to make it. Looks too fussy and hard. But what the hey, I wanted an argyle stocking hanging up on the mantel. Perfect time to man up and make one!

And then I remembered that Heidi from E&E also loves hockey. Our equivalent down here in the USA would be football…as in popularity, not the game itself. Lol, I do know SOME things about sports. 😉 Hence, the little sport items in the argyle diamonds. Ahh, I love it!DSC_0048

The stocking also got piping, because I figured most sport teams use piping in their uniforms or after game gear. Sure…that sounds plausible.DSC_0049

And the colors were an effort to have less red around the house…but I think I may have accidentally made a stocking that looks like Ronald McDonald’s if he was a football fan. Live and learn…those colors belong to MickeyD’s and shouldn’t be touched. 😉

Ahh well, it still looks cute with the other ones around it. And who knows, maybe that loveable clown has a family of six too. Haha.DSC_0051
