Christmas Stockings & Stocking Plant Hanger :)

Isn't this neato? :) I was sitting at the dinner table one night, looking at the stockings I had just made hanging on the calendar in the kitchen, (Yes, the one that is still on Febuary :)) And looking at a crochet plant hanger I made at another window, and thought, "Why not make a Christmas stocking that is also a plant hanger!?!?" So, upon waking at 3:00am the next morning, after dreaming of stocking plant hangers, :), I made it! Doesn't it look great?? I think a different plant might look better in it, but I just had to show off my Christmas Cactus blooming.
     Umm....ignore the orange spider web, and orange painted turtle :) There must be a 4 year old around here somewhere....:)
 Isn't the cactus beautiful? Only one side is blooming, the other side has a couple tiny buds. Strange.

 If anyone would like the pattern for this planter stocking, I did amazingly write it down at 3am when I was making it! Most of it anyway. If anyone is interested, leave a comment saying so and I'll type it up. It can be used as a regular stocking too. The stocking part is about 13 inches with an H hook, and with the hanger part it's around 26 inches long.
 These are two more stockings I made from a different pattern. I wanted some large stockings just for wall decorations. I love these colors! These babies are 32 inches long!!!!
 This one was in a crochet magazine from last year, I forget which one.....if you'd like to know leave a comment and I'll find it for you. This is forest green with red centers, and light green trim. I love that color combo! And this one measures 30 inch!
 Hmmm...someone needs to fix that calendar...
