Just like mommy's and daddy's
This year, I finally had the time to knit Gregory his own Christmas/Holiday stocking. His first Christmas, he was six months old, and I was still in a newborn daze. His second Christmas, we had just moved, and the last thing on my mind was extensive knitting. Now, on his third Christmas, life has settled into a busy, but predictable, pace. Gregory is finally starting to understand the idea of gifts and giving. We finally have a fireplace, a proper place to display these hand knits. It feels right that he should now have a stocking as special as mommy's and daddy's, for his own stocking stuffers. Bonus: I actually finished Gregory's stocking before the Holidays, which I can't say about my own and my husband's stockings ;).
Pattern: Judy's Colors, Fire and Ice Christmas stocking kit.
Yarn: Raumagarn 3-ply wool yarn.
Needles: US 4 Susan Bates 16" circular needle and dpns.
Happy Holidays, dear readers, and best wishes for 2014!
