We discussed methods to make a Christmas

tree skirt, and now I’m ready to dive into another enjoyable holiday decor staple: Do It Yourself Christmas stockings! I have extremely fond memories of hanging up stockings when I was little. It was always my job to do it, and our grandma had offered us knitted stockings with all of our names on them(so they were extremely special). Given that I had 4 more youthful siblings and believed that the method to get more things in your equipping was to have the greatest one, I got imaginative each year.

I spent a great deal of time stretching my knitted equipping. If you look at old pictures, you can see each year that the toe got a little longer … and longer. and hung down below the others. Humorous!
