A Family of Stockings

This project is finished just in time to be filled with treats and some coal (for my husband's new interest in blacksmithing)! I was starting to feel over knitting patterned stockings by the third one (mine), but stuck with it after finding a bit of hand spun wool. No matter the project, I find it's always enjoyable to knit with my own yarn, keeping in mind the generous amount of time I gave to the processing of that fleece. The least I can do it turn it into something, right? So, here they are, three chunky socks hanging (above) the hearth while I anticipate the filling of them in a few short weeks.
