Growing up in a family of three children my parents tried very hard to make most things equal amongst us. The main area where they failed was our Christmas stockings. You see my older brother and sister had their stockings made for them before I was born. When I was added to the bunch the family friend knitted me a stocking as well. Unfortunately for my siblings but luckily for me the friend had misplaced her pattern and my stocking ended up twice as big as the other two.
So after I knitted Abigail’s stocking at Christmas time I figured that since I had the yarn out, the pattern on hand and no pressure of time this would be a good time to knit another stocking or two. That way future guests or future Klynstra’s will have stockings of similar size to Abigail’s.
Well, my plan to knit a bunch of stockings has sort of died out as two seems like just enough for this year since there are other projects that I would like to put on my needles. But the thought is there, the pattern has been established and I do believe that the Christmas’ in our future will be filled with big and equally sized stockings.
