The stockings were hung…

Does this look like the home of a knitter?

I knit Christmas stockings for our family about 15 years ago. The snowflake stockings came first.

After that? Variations on the theme. I knit the piano stocking next. (I was playing a lot as an adult student back then.)

My younger son wanted dancing people.

Of course, we needed a stocking for the cat.

This year, I designed the super bulky Super Cabled Christmas Stocking.

We’re not a family of six, even though our fireplace gives that impression!

Our tradition is to open stocking gifts before Christmas breakfast. It was a way of holding off the wrapping paper frenzy until I was ready to face the day. It still works, even with grown kids! Now we add mimosas to that breakfast.

Do you have a Christmas stocking tradition at your house?
