Handmade Stockings Are a Tradition


One of my son’s teachers asked this question, and I had to pause. We don’t do elf on the shelf. Sometimes we bake and decorate cookies. However, some years we run out of time.

However, my husband reminded me we have lots of traditions. The main one is all of the stockings that I make each year. He feels like it’s become a tradition for me to add a new handmade stocking even though there is no more room by the fire.

I told him it’s going to keep happening, so he better start putting some nails in the walls for future years lol.

Lego Christmas Village, Another Tradition

I don’t know if my kids think of our Christmas stockings as our tradition, yet. Instead, by far, I think our children will always see Lego Christmas Village as their tradition.

It all began years ago, but the real story was even before that. Roll the memories back to my college days. The first Christmas my husband and I were dating, we found ourselves at a craft store. I mean, he knew from the start who he was dating, and that regular craft store trips were part of the deal, haha.

As we were walking the isles, he saw the porcelain winter houses and said someday he wanted to do that. I responded with an ‘Excuse me, grandma? Ummm, no. You better find a new girlfriend.’

The next thing we knew, an older lady was giggling as she listened to our argument of why I was not on board with a glass village. I was a nanny at the time to anything breakable was my worst nightmare; it doesn’t work with children. A crochet Christmas stocking free pattern was way more my pace.

Arguably, I mentioned it’s just a dust collector. I already had too many gifts people thought I would like that became dust collectors.

I think he was just shocked; how was I not on board? It was the craft store, and I should like anything and everything there, right?

Fast forward to the year we had our son and visited Disney Springs to see the holiday decor. And then we wandered into the Lego store, and he saw the set of his dreams. A winter holiday village but in Legos. And instantly I knew this was my future.

He was so excited, and I was cool with it. So, each year since we take the kids down to Disney Springs and get the newest edition in the set. It’s become one of the best traditions the whole family enjoys. It’s unique and special, and my boys think the whole thing rocks. While I tend to sit back, enjoy the view, and snack with wine while everyone else builds, I’m known to help put a few things together. Better than the glass you can’t play with or touch.

Whatever your traditions are, enjoy every single moment. I already feel like each season goes by too fast, and the traditions help us slow down and remember to take time to enjoy those we love. That’s why traditions are important, even if it’s just building Legos. Or using a crochet Christmas stocking free pattern to make more stockings than your family will ever need.

When I tell people this has become our tradition, I get a few more questions on how to get the Legos. It is hard to come across previous sets. However, it’s never too late to start building. Lego has released a train twice now (we weren’t collecting yet when they did the first one). And it never disappoints.

So you do not need to go to a Lego store, it is on Amazon, but it is essential to get it while it’s there. Once it’s gone, it’s gone and difficult to find ever again.

Notes:

The bobble stocking is worked in the round, from toe to top. The bobbles are worked in a second color, but the stocking can also be worked in one solid color.

Chain 2 at the beginning of the round does not count as a stitch.

Using the hook over, versus yarn over, the method will lessen a traveling seam.

I was looking for a stocking pattern for the whole family and stumbled across this one. I love it! I also love your formatting of the pattern - it's so easy to follow. If your PDF follows the same structure I may have to go buy it just because the formatting is so simple and smart.

I love this pattern and I'm working on my fifth stocking so far. The bobble stitches all pop out on the wrong side of the stocking. Is there a way, when using more than one color, to get them to pop on the right side?

Yay! I'm so happy to hear this! Before pulling the yarn through for the final time on the bobble, push the bobble to the side you want it to pop out on and then pull the last yarn over through tightly.
