What do you think of the Yule stocking advent calendar I knitted for my loved one? During lockdown I found that knitting and other forms of crafting were great ways to take my mind off my worries.
I rather enjoyed knitting these tiny little little socks, which used a free pattern on the Jean Greenhowe website. I used up scraps of wool, so it was an upcycling project - although I admit I bought the numbers that are stuck on the fronts. I hung them on an old cord and clipped them there with tiny wooden pegs. I crafted most of the little treats that are inside them too, but they are a secret at the moment. I'll blog further once they have been revealed.
Yes, I do realise that advent is a count down to Christmas rather than the Winter Solstice, but I don't mind. I celebrate in a pagan way on the 21st, but still enjoy festivities and good food on the 25th. What do you think?
