One of my favourite Christmas traditions is hanging up the stockings. We didn’t have a fireplace growing up so we hung them up on the banister.

Christmas stockings can be extra personal, made to reflect the person they belong to. Classic, modern, simple, bold with texture…there are so many options to make them unique.

Earlier this summer, I was browsing through some beautiful hand dyed yarn online. They were all so unique and filled with amazing colour combinations that were so creatively inspiring.
