What a fabulous idea! Can we stuff them ourselves? I will have a ton of leftover halloween candy I can stuff them with.

My experience with sending any candy to our deployed troops is that the candy should be individually wrapped. (It's a safety thing!)

I will do some mini socks as well. I would also like to send along some packets of gum and/or other assorted candy. If you want me to mail directly to your friend, please let me know. Thanks!

Wow you guys are truly awesome
Stuff your sock with anything you would like just please put your sock in a Ziploc bag so the candy stays with your sock.
Jan they should be at least 4 inches long and about 2 inches at the ankle part. But what ever you make will be fine.
gmmarton, please send them to me,Just pm me and I will give you my address.

fibrenut-I can hardly wait to see them!!!!!!!!!!!

I talk to Becky today and she said if anyone includes a CARD please DO NOT seal it.Some of the soldiers got some really sick mail from people , so they want cards open so they can check them. How can people be so cruel ?

Thanks again every body I appreciate all your help

Here is the stocking I came up with...I wanted something knit in the round but looked more like a stocking than a sock. I found the yarn in the back of my yarn closet, I think I bought it the first Christmas I was knitting.
