Stockings Bedecked:  Traditions surrounding the advent of the Christmas stocking
are as varied as those surrounding needlework. Stockings are familiar items in the crafters' repertoire; they are blank canvases that allow knitters to showcase their best embellishing Stockingtricks. They are often painstakingly knit and used as heirloom gifts to be passed on through generations. These three stockings, Magi, share a classic look but feature simple embellishments that modernize. Comfort makes truly plush tassels and pompoms (be sure to use lots of yarn for maximum body).
