Christmas is a time when you get homesick
even when you’re home.

[Carol Nelson]

Cole's StockingHOT OFF THE NEEDLES—When this stocking is dry (it is currently being blocked) and the jingle bells are sewn on, it will go into the mail to Cole in Wilmington, NC.

My mother made countless Christmas stockings during her 95 years—all children, grand children, spouses and several friends have one. Now that she is gone, I’ve been knitting the Christmas stockings. This one is for my grandson Cole. I have one more to knit—grandson Owain will get the next one.

This yarn is Kraemer Sterling Silk & Silver. It is Merino wool, silk, nylon and sterling silver (sparkles) fine sock yarn. The pattern is on my …and a time to knit stockings CD.
