Remember when I told you about the wonderful Christmas Stockings my grandma made for all of her descendants and their husbands and wives? Well, over the summer I talked to my sister Shannon about starting one for my grandson.
She said, “Well, since you’ve been doing so much crocheting I thought maybe YOU’D like to do it”.
I haven’t knitted more than an iffy ‘potholder’, so I wasn’t sure. But thinking of the traditions and of my own little grandbaby I decided to give it a go.
Shannon is a great teacher and soon I was up and running, knitting a project I always thought would be way too complex. As I make this stocking I feel very close to my own Grandmother who is no longer with us and to my little grandson who lives over half a country away.
I also feel love for my family and nostalgia for Christmases, past and future. Here’s to traditions!
