finally, after 8 christmases as a family, we have real special-to-our-family stockings!
(remember my wreath? it finally has company!)
i had these babies in mind after last christmas, and have been working on them on and off since this past summer. if you're a knitter, you can find the pattern i based them on here. i changed the pattern around for the top (white) part of the stockings because instead of them looking different at the top, i wanted the whole stocking to look like the same continuous pattern.
