    Christmas stocking

    My sister-in-law cannot knit any longer and needed a Christmas stocking for her first grandson. She remembered the 3 that I made last year and requested my help. Of course I agreed for a new baby!

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    That is so cute. I have two Williams, they go by Bill of course. A Grandson's middle name is William too. A great name.

    I love that! 30 + years ago a lady my husband worked with knitted our boys stockings with their names on it, and Santa faces. We still use them every year. They are the first thing the boys "open" every Christmas. You have made a treasure for sure!

    So cute! The name Wiliam has been in our family for many generations. If we get a son we will probably call him Liam, the Irish form of William.

    That’s a sweet stocking! It’s so nice that you’re multi-talented and will to help.
