Red stockings

I returned from our local summer event and checked the Calontir website to discover that my friends Hirsch and Magda won Calontir's Crown Tournament.  Weeeee!

Naturally I had to make her stockings so I set out to find the perfect red.

I ordered the yarn from 3 Kittens Yarn Shop and spent about a month crafting them into knee high stockings on size 0 needles.  The clock detail is a crown and a red scallop shell.

I delivered them, along with other presents, to their Coronation in September.  I managed to surprise them with my presence and she was delighted with the gift.  Fortunately they fit her perfectly as I was guessing on the measurements.
