A few years ago, I knit an Advent calendar for my friend Caitrin... here it is, hanging over her fireplace. It's made up of 24 little stockings, and the idea is to put a little note or surprise in each stocking so that someone (like Caitrin's daughter, Macie) can open one each day in December as a countdown to Christmas.
For the past few years, my birthday gift to Caitrin has been a box full of little goodies to pack in the Advent Calendar stockings for Macie to open. I look forward to putting the package together every year. Here's a little peek at the box I sent this year for Caitrin's birthday... soon to be tucked inside stockings for Advent!
I'm so thankful to have friends who let me love their kiddos!
