My great Aunt knit all my dads family stockings. When spouses came along, she knitted them stockings. When kids came along we all got stockings, but that is where it stopped. I taught myself to knit just so I could keep it going. I’ve knitted four so far, I still have to my brothers fiance that was killed in the crash, hers is about 70% done, I just could finish it this Christmas. But the tradition continues on.
