It only took 10 years to finish

 Before our first Christmas I was shopping and just fell in LOVE with an adorable Santa stocking.  It was $15.  Too much to spend  on our little budget, and how was I to know how many to buy??  (Back then, just 9 months after getting married, I assumed we'd have a house full of kids...)  So, with Mom's advice, I bought just one, went home to copy it, and returned it shortly after.  With each addition to the family I've brought out the red felt and material scraps, still happy with the design I picked.

Mario does not get a stocking.

...Actually, a rudolph would be cute...

hmmm...

hi Mario
Also, a resolution I'm bouncing around in my head is re-learning how to crochet and not forgetting this time.  Thanks, Mom, for the inspiration.  Janet LOVES the hats and gave me a gift to give you.  So everyone fake  your joy when next year I present you with one of those crocheted, rooster-ish, toilet paper covers...

Those stockings are adorable. If I owned stockings that cute I might have even decorated for Christmas this year.

So glad Janet likes them. I still have more of her yarn and may experiment with another hat.

Your stockings by far out-class the ones I made many years ago that have that tacky 80s look.

Cute stockings! I just made our final one this year - weird to think I have 8 stockings stretched across our mantel.
