I love the feeling of finishing things! One of my first knitting projects was Christmas stockings. That was about 35 years ago. About 10 years ago I thought I would replace them with something a little more elegant. No one wanted anything to do with the new ones. And since everyone has moved away, I get requests to make Christmas stockings for their homes. Our youngest was married in September. I made Christmas stockings for them including their dog two years ago. This year Mrs. M asked me to make one for her MIL.
