My "Grandma’s Christmas Stocking"

It is about the time of the year where the Christmas stockings hit the needles. Generally it is knitting for a new cousin (marrying into the family or being born into the family). While I do have a few to make this year, my first stop was fixing my own stocking.

Years ago my stocking got a LITTLE too close to the fireplace. As any acrylic yarn would do it melted. Luckily only the toe was melted off.

A few years ago my mom started sending me home from Christmas with my stocking in hopes that I would finally fix the toe of the stocking. I’ve never cut anyone’s knitting before, let alone my grandma’s!

On Friday night Aaron came into the office to find me with a pair of scissors and this:


Have no fear! The stocking did not sit in pieces for long. Luckily the melting only happened at the toe. A little bit of cutting and the toe was as good as new!

The red is a little bit off but it’s not all that noticeable. Considering it was knit 26 years later, I’d say they match pretty well! Now about those other stockings…

  1. And it will live another 26+ years! Grandma would be proud of you (but not of me for letting it get too close to the fire!). 🙂 xxoo
