Here's my son's stocking! Now I've got to get started on my daughter's.

It looks great and you finished it really quickly! How big is it?
Any tips or lessons learned?

I'd say it's about 15 inches from the cuff to the heel.

I did learn that Lopi can break if you tug too hard on it. I broke the yarn several times trying to keep the yarn between DPNs snug. Turning the heel was easier than I thought and was kind of cool to watch. If you've never knit a sock before, a Christmas stocking is a good place to learn as the FO is big. It's easier to see the mistakes and fix them.

I love it! I really thing the tweedy yarn was a perfect choice. I'm still waiting for my needles and yarn to arrive to make mine :)
