|Operation Holiday Stockings|
My stockings for the year (a total of 32). These are for U.S. Soldiers deployed overseas. Last year I made about a dozen stockings. This year my goal was to make 52 stockings (one for each week of the year). I fell short of my goal as I was distracted by so many other knit-worthy and crochet-worthy causes.
The stockings are filled with all sorts of goodies... toothpaste, candy, drink mixes, lip balm, and so on...
Yes, you can fit 32 stockings into a shoe box for a size 11 men's shoe. My baby boy has some big feet!
