Tweaked Photo: The Stockings Were Hung by the Chimney with Care

I have designed a lot of socks over the years.  One day I went crazy and hung up a lot of stockings by the chimney....most of these are socks of a 19th century type.  None of the socks in this pic actually have mates.  I sometimes suffer from what sock knitters call second sock syndrome, where you create, design, or knit one of a kind, but never make its mate.  But they made a neat decoration....Don't expect Santa to leave me anything in them.  We no longer live in the house with that chimney....and the socks are currently put away.  But some of these socks actually are real designs for patterns I used to sell, and I still have the instructions.
