The Stockings Were Hung by the Chimney With Care

Here is the pile of scraps left on the couch's armrest after I finished weaving in the ends on nineteen little stockings last night.




Karl helped me hang them up on the mantel...




Soon I'll finish five more, for a total of 24. One to open each day in December up till Christmas.



And I have to say, they're turning out much cuter than I had expected.



I already started filling the stockings with little treats. They're the perfect size for two Lindor truffles, a rolled-up note, six Andes mints, a fat little mini-sausage I found at Cost Plus World Market, or a couple of small candy canes.

Oh! I almost forgot- today is Day Thirty of 30 Days of Thankfulness. I'm thankful for knitting, Christmas, and our cozy little house.
