Here's a photo of the finished stocking hanging on the antique armoire. I am really loving how simple and uncomplicated it looks. I think I might try to make a couple more of these before Yule for friends. I've definitely got enough yarn in my stash to get rid of this way. :)

Looks great! How tall did it end up? Did you base it on any patterns? Lessons learned or suggestions?

Thanks for all the great comments!
I loosely based it on a pattern in the Fall 2005 Knit It! magazine. It is just sort of a medium stocking, measuring 10 inches from top to heel, and 8 more from heel to toe.
Lesson learned? Don't knit mohair-like yarns on bamboo needles. The yarn was way too grabby and made it hard to work with. I think I will do metal needles next time around.

That is a great stocking. I love the color. It looks very soft.
