We've asked our friends from the Montreal-based Sweet Paprika Designs to send us their three top-selling Christmas stocking kits. Sweet Paprika Designs was started in 2007 by sisters Elizabeth and Debbie Sullivan as a way to fund their fibre habit. They are passionate about fibre and want to provide materials for crafters to use in creating truly beautiful handmade projects. Barb and Cynthia talk about these kits and Christmas Stockings in their (Pod)cast On! Episode 6.
These festive stockings use both stranded colourwork and duplicate stitches to create holiday motifs that will look amazing hanging in your home. Each kit includes a detailed pattern, all the yarn required to make one large stocking, and felt for a cozy lining.Pictured, left to right are: "Holly", "Icicle" and "Argyle".
