September 25th—91 Days until Christmas—A Crocheted Christmas Stocking

I’m a knitter, but recently I came across a crochet pattern for a charming granny square stocking.  It was easy enough for this clutzy crocheter to make and in fact years ago I did make one.  I would show you the picture, but unfortunately that red and green stocking is packed away until December in who knows what box.  Trust me it looks very much like this one.

I started to make another stocking to post, but after I’d made the prescribed twelve squares inspiration hit—These squares will make perfect coasters!

The gold and white colors make them suitable not only for Christmas, but New Year’s Eve, too

If you’re going to make a stocking, get busy now.  Next post we’ll give you suggestions for what presents to put into the stockings for kids.  The sooner you buy them, the more relaxed your holiday will be.
