Shhhhhh....don't tell anyone, but I'll let you in on a secret....hubby has a crochet Xmas stocking, and the darn thing S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-S with anything that you put into it.  (It's heck trying to fill it on Christmas Eve...just when I think I bought enough stuff for him...!)

I'll let you in on another secret....whoever I get as my partner I hope would like a crocheted stocking...I LOVE to crochet, and I LOVE to spoil!

OOH! A crocheted stocking sounds awesome! I am no good with the fiber arts, and totally respect anyone who is!  And I love to spoil too, maybe we should be partners!!  Grin

**EDIT**- maybe we should Request parnership, but I know that ultimately it's up to our organizers, and they did an awesome-tastic job last year!

I love doing knit mitten stockings.  I made two for DH and myself years ago, and I think it was last year or the year before I made a bunch of them for MIL/FIL, SIL/BIL, a few friends etc, and stuffed them for them.

I hope I remember how to make the holly leaves- I don't think I ever wrote it down, and I wanted to make a garland of crocheted or knit holly for the tree too!  I get silly every time I pull the mittens out in the winter and chase the dogs and DH down with them on my hands, slapping at them with my giant mittens.  I think I need to make paw ones for the pups too.

sezouli...sounds like a plan to me! (As long as the organizers are okay with it.  Wink)  (Would give us a head start on crafting too, which is always nice.)

I just can't have a partner with pets or who smokes.  I don't have allergies, but my son, husband and daughter do.

BTW...False.  Battlestar Galactica.  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin
