You do NOT need special yarn!  You can use any scrap yarn you have on hand. For a mini stocking the same size as mine, you'll want to use worsted weight yarn (craft yarn council category 4).

You will need to use circular needles, but any type or brand are fine. Use what you're comfortable with:

• Double-Pointed Needles

• Circular Needle with a flexible long cord for Magic Loop

• 2 Circular Needles

What if I don't finish in time?

This is a small project, designed especially so it won't be too overwhelming.  Keep in mind that it's not a race and there is no deadline to finish.  It's all about enjoying the journey and exploring classic sock knitting techniques together.
