Our stockings are hung by the chimney with care!IMG_3997IMG_3998Mike and I made our stockings when we first moved in together … 12 years ago … and we’re still fighting over who’s better. My mom made David stocking – which is the better than both of our combined because it’s bigger and wool expands better than felt. My mom knit/felted these as well: IMG_3994IMG_3993 IMG_3995Happy stocking stuffing to all and to all a good night.
