Merry Christmas!

Tomorrow, Christmas Day, my 'Holiday' Season begins!

I have participated in a few Christmas festivities, Choir concerts and special events, these next 10 or so days are the 'real' Christmas time.  Our tree is finally finished, we decorated it on Saturday, Christmas gifts were wrapped last night and the turkey is in the fridge.  We have 3 family dinners, one with just us (4) and 2 others with extended family.  We are never really ready!

Tonight is clean-up, hide all those 'nests' of knitting that have accumulated over the past few weeks.  Finding the dining room table will require more than just a few minutes and a big recycling box! (I don't know how or why I think that someday I might need or read everything that comes into the house!)

This is a time for family and we celebrate with those who are important to us, and are reminded that others are facing a Christmas without someone important for the first or third or tenth time. 

Keep safe everyone, happy Holidays and a Very Merry Christmas Season.

See you January 2nd!

We all know that this is it, the last week!  Every year right at this time many are thinking: 'Next year will be different!" and it never is!

Today I am madly trying to get a few things done ahead so that I can be 'away' next week.  'The Farmer' and I have planned a little mini vacation next week, just a couple of days.  (You add all the days 'away' we have had in the last year and you can count them on one hand!)

This morning things didn't go as planned, 'The Farmer's' truck wouldn't start and it was blocking my car.  My printer wouldn't print.  I couldn't find the documents to finish doing some paper work! 

Then today I realized that tomorrow is 'The Farmer's' birthday!  How can that be already!

Christmas, I'm so glad it only happens once a year!

Tonight is knit night, I am going to just sit and enjoy!  Christmas will come whether we are ready or not!

One Week!

It's been an unpredictable December.  I stocked up on everything and ordered more and still they disappeared.  The shop is out of a few things, but still well stocked for gifts and of course yarn to give or use to create a gift.  Gift Certificates have been reprinted and always a welcome gift!

Quick gifts can be found in the ruffly yarn area, there are some interesting new varieties!  (I made a rather nice cowl out of one of them on Friday!)

The shop is open everyday from now until the 25th.  Check the website page for details, basically if you come between 1 pm - 4 pm, someone will be at the shop!

I have been knitting away on Sweater # 3, it is almost done!

It is a Knitt'n Night week!  That's Tomorrow! Wednesday 6 pm - 8 pm!

See you Soon.

 Twelve Days to Go!

Some quick projects for those last minute gifts!

You could make these from your stash!

First up:  Ziyal

The yarn is Silk Bamboo from Fleece artist, it took just 65 grams of the 100 gram skein. (I know the picture says that the yarn is Lady Godiva, but that's what happens when you take pictures at 5:30 on Saturday!  oops!)

Next is Ariosa Cowl from Classic Elite.The yarn is Chalet from Classic Elite, buttery soft Alpaca.  The pattern is completely reversible and a quick knit.  It does take 2 balls, but still a lovely gift. 

Gifts for knitters, easy?  Great yarn, good tools or a gift certificate!  This interchangeable set from Knitter's Pride comes with a lovely box and is a limited edition set!  

The Shop has been a busy place!  Hope you are in the process of completing all those projects you had planned!  ( I certainly will be madly working away on the days before the big event!)

See you Soon!
