When we were kids my grandma knit us all stockings that matched our parents. They were red, white and green and for the most part matched. Keeping in mind that a lot of them were knit at different times and with different types of yarn, they all followed the same general theme.
A few years ago my cousins and I reached that age where marriages started and kids joined the family. Despite not having my grandma around anymore I decided to take on the tradition.
For the last four years I’ve been knitting Christmas stockings as we add to our family.
Last year in the midst of chaos, I failed our newest family member Cameron.
Despite the fact that he is now a year old, Cameron will finally get his stocking today!
