mini christmas stockings

Last year I made some christmas stockings for the K4C challenge. My friend and colleague (who shall remain nameless) decided it would be good idea for ME to make some and give them to all our residents. Yes all 62 of them. Here is my progress, 48 done and 14 to go. The crochet version takes me about 1/2 an hour from go to whoa, including sewing up and weaving ends in. I prefer making the crochet to knitted version and they were easy enough to do while being passenger in the car. As you can see, I've made them in lots of different colours, it certainly made the project more interesting from my end! Hopefully I can finish soon and have one less project on the go. 
They will probably have candy canes in them before they are gifted. hope you enjoy the pic.
