The New Ancestral Christmas Stocking came into Ann’s life many years ago as a tattered photocopy of a mimeograph of a cuneiform stone-incised recipe for an oversized stocking, complete with intarsia image of a lumpy Santa.
Ann filled in all the blurry bits, deciphered many handwritten notes from unknown ancestors, and redesigned her family’s treasured stocking for the Modern Age of Christmas.
What we love about this stocking:
Capacity. You can cram a lot of Toblerones and horehound candy in this baby. The leg is long and the toe is virtually bottomless. This hardworking sock is not just for decoration; it’s for cargo.
Tradition. Lumpy Santa is gone, but there’s no mistaking the holiday cheer here. Snowflakes! Elf stripes! Argyles!
Modernity. The lines are clean and the font for the duplicate-stitched name is simple and unadorned.
