I've been working on this polar bear stocking this weekend, it's basically finished (just needs a loop at the top). Polar bears came out really sharp looking, and I like the two rows of polar bears. Also, it was easier to knit it without a name there (I didn't have to pay so much attention) though it took just as long.
It's for an Etsy order, though if the customer doesn't like it, I will list it as a regular stocking. There are 3 more to be done in a similar style (if the order comes through).
