It's entirely possible. It did look like an integral part of the top of the
stocking, not like something that had been made separately and attached later.

Well, we're now dealing solely in the realm of my memory here, and we know
how good that can be! I don't *think* they were cut, but I wouldn't swear to
it. Because I (1) don't do sprang (and don't need to learn either, honest!
Too many projects) and (2) don't do Roman re-enactment I didn't pay as much
attention to the fringe as I probably should have.
