About

Hand Knitted Christmas Stockings - Family Memories Just Waiting to Happen...

Hand knitted Christmas stockings...they have been a part of our cherished family memories for generations now. A family member or special friend hand knitted them for us. They have become an important part of our family Christmas traditions. Fast forward (literally) 30 or 40 years and now the grandchildren are here and it's time to continue that tradition. The designs and patterns we grew up with are now called "vintage". Yes, that does make us vintage as well - LOL! Many of us want to recreate those same designs, while others are looking for something new.

It's that new generation - along with an empty nest - that inspired me to dust off those old stockings patterns and begin anew. My mom taught me to knit when I was young. Thanks to all those years of knitting and now computers, designing patterns is so much easier. Add in Etsy (an amazing selling venue!), and a store was born with a collection of hand made items from original design Christmas Elves to knitted and crocheted items. Hand knitted (with love) stockings have become my specialty.

For those of us who have them, these stockings are way more than just Christmas decorations. They are a collection of cherished memories - starting with the person who knitted them. It's about people and families, and I am honored to be able to continue that tradition with your family.

Thanks Mom for teaching me the basics and inspiring my creative nature! And, this way I am so busy with knitting that don't bother my kids so much...hehehe
