Dad's First Christmas Stocking

My son and his wife are expecting their first child, my first grandchild in December. They have been married for 5 1/2 years, and survived 3 deployments (Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan). I could not be more excited about anything.... anything!

I wanted to knit something to commemorate the blessed event, something that would be timeless, forever. I finally decided upon the most perfect item - A Christmas Stocking!

I will be making three - one for Dad, one for Mom and one for Baby - each with varying designs. Every year, as they hang their stocking on the mantle, I will be remembered. And that is so heartwarming.

As I knitted this....

I had tears of joy in my eyes, as I realized - My baby is going to be a Dad!
