There were no stockings to make this year. This was bittersweet -- as happy as I was not to have to incorporate stocking making into my making schedule this year, I was sad in the fact that there was a miscarriage in the family and thereby a little nephew or niece we will not get to meet.
I said that if there ever came a year that I did not need to make any stockings, I would go back and "fix" Hank's stocking to reflect his nickname. He is definitely a Hank, maybe a John, but certainly not a Henry.
We received word within the last couple of weeks that another SIL is pregnant, so expect more stocking making next year!
