The Stockings Were Hung By The Chimney With Care

I love making Christmas stockings. I like knitting them and cross stitching them and sewing them. I just truly enjoy making them.
I've made them for family and friends and for us.
But how many stockings does a person need? The first year we were married I knit stockings for Rob and me. We still use them. I also knit stockings for the two dogs we had at the time.

As more dogs came along, we switched to the toy box, but they do hang this stocking just for looks.
A couple years later I made these stockings for us, but we don't actually use them.

Then there were these two, which are my favorites.
In recent years I've stitched these, though I haven't made them up yet.
I can't help myself, I just love making Christmas stockings. It's time to go hang those stockings now. Merry Christmas everyone.

Stunning. I still need to make one for Mark. I was going to knit one, but I think you've inspired me to needlepoint or cross stitch one.
