A Knit E-Book
You might remember that last year I created the Bethlehem Cowl I told the story of the nativity story through a stranded knitted cowl. This year I wanted to spruce up the charts and use them again with stockings. I took out the Mary and Joseph chart and added the wise men chart.
I have always wanted to have my own handmade stockings to hang up and bring out every year, and eventually pass them on to my kids. This year I finally accomplished getting them made. The Stockings tell the story of the birth of Jesus. They are a wonderful reminder of the whole reason we celebrate Christmas.
I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Yarn for these stockings. Each stocking uses 4 skeins of yarn. 2 for the main color and 1 each of the secondary colors. I love the traditional colors that I chose but there are lots of other options to choose.
