A couple of years ago, I knitted the boys a stocking each to fill with sweets “from Santa”. They proved to be totally useless for the task as they stretched as soon as anything heavier than a penny chew was put inside. So they were added to the box of decorations and last year were hung from the fireplace, completely empty but nicely decorative.
So this year I thought it would be nice for Rose to her her own one added to the fireplace. I wanted a different colour for the main stocking, and the only yarn I had to hand was some Cygnet Aran which is called crimson, but is really magenta. Crimson makes me think of rich, deep, red, but it was different enough from the other stockings at least. And now I have a little family of stockings:
Perhaps next year, MrB and I will also get our own stockings to admire and leave empty.
