Welcome blessed December. It was a light speed year, but nevertheless, I am glad to see you've rolled around again. Christmastime is here. It's officially the hap-happiest season of all. Time to trim our trees and prepare our hearts for Christ's coming. Our halls are decked and our Advent calendar is chock full of ideas to make the season bright. Am feeling a little extra merry this year at the thought of sharing the wonderment with Graham, forging new family traditions as a threesome, and (hip-hip) the prospect of enjoying a white Christmas once again as a Minnesotan. Speaking of traditions--last year, I loved every minute of sharing my December Dailies. And so, I am delighted to bring you a whole 'nother round. First up, the big reveal of my DIY stockings. I had high hopes of knitting up something truly heirloom-worthy, but my needles (and knitting aptitude) froze and fell short after the first row. Yarn aside, these are my wool felt renditions. I must say, it's the thought that counts. My lovely SIL Jenny came to spend a weekend with us in November, and we cranked out our handmade stockings like nobody's business. I am so grateful to her for inspiring + motivating me to get these made. Now all I have to do is sit back and scheme about how I will stuff them.
