the stockings were hung

Sunday, December 6, 2009

in weatherford oklahoma. a few weeks ago i received a request from a friend, would i knit her 3 christmas stockings? i told her i thought i would be able to pull it off in time for christmas. she gave me a color scheme, but gave me free reign on design ( a designer's dream client). i finished them over thanksgiving and they arrived at their new home last week. she loves them! i can just picture them hanging in her home, i have not seen her home, but the house she grew up in was always so festive and embodied holiday cheer. i expect her house is no different.

for jiles

and for brad


  1. so adorable! I think I need to learn how to knit...

  2. How festive and wonderful! She is lucky to be your friend for so many reasons, I'm sure, and hand-knit treasures are one of them. :)

  3. Just came over from Marta's blog and I find this wonderful post. What pattern did you use for these lovely memories?

  4. Yes I am so lucky to have you my old, dear friend! I will send you of a pic the stockings on my mantle. BTW, mom was so pleased about how you remembered our home!
