I think I deserve a Ph.D. in Pattern Notes Archaeology, specializing in my own damn notes. After much wrestling, I believe I have captured the complete instructions for reproducing this delightful stocking. As always, I will be paying attention to Ravelry and the comments here if you run into any confusions with knitting this pattern.
This lined stocking is worked from the top down in the round. It will easily hold an orange in the toe (a Walshe family tradition) and anything else you would expect Santa to stash in an oversized sock.
