Christmas Stockings

As far back as I can remember, these were knitted by Mom and replaced frequently, as she loved to knit & was always finding new patterns she wanted to try.

Even more exciting were the new mittens she made us every year, color-coordinated to our winter coats, of which best were a series of hand-puppet-like animals - we remember mice, raccoons, whales, horses, donkeys.

She also crocheted wonderful Christmas decorations, including these snowflakes for the windows, and stockings for the tree.
