The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

Well, I'm sure you know how the rest of the poem goes, but the stockings are both knitted and felted and hanging just waiting to be filled.

Now I have two red velour stockings with no purpose. I think I'll save them and use them as gift bags or something.

I love your stockings...the Noro looks great. I would have never thought to choose it. Would you reccommend the book? Are there many patterns?
