Miniature Christmas Sock

Whimsical Loom Knits – December 2016

Designed by Jenny Stark

We Need a Little Christmas by Johnny Mathis has been on my mind today.  I hope this little project will bring a little holiday happiness to you.  Knit a little Christmas spirit with this cheery little sock and place it in your tree.  Or, fill it with a little present and gift a little Christmas to someone dear to you.
