Blogmas Day 15: Tis that time of year

While looking through old photos to check and see what yarns I dyed up for past holiday gifts I realised that I seem to have a pattern of taking the last ten days before Xmas to dye and knit a rather large gift. This year is no different. We’ll see how this year’s gift goes. […]

Blogmas Day 14 :New Ornament for the tree

A lot of ornament a tree talk these last couple of posts but, I spotted this little guy in the window of Curiosity in Harbor East shortly after Thanksgiving. I walk by the shop in the morning to meet my coworkers for a ride to the shop. I thought he would be a perfect addition […]

Blogmas Day 13: Pug face and thorns

As it was a work day here is another glimpse at the tree. Our super silly pug pipe cleaner ornament. It’s a simple little ornament but we love it. I purchased it years ago from Etsy. You can find a lot of homemade gems there.

Blogmas Day 12: Handmade ornaments

Here are a few of my favorite ornaments that I have made over the years. Acorn Twins and the mushroom were ones I made for local holiday shows that I sold years ago. The sock was made the year I discovered that I actually enjoyed knitting socks. I made several and gave most of them […]

Blogmas Day 11: Gift project day

Besides a sore arm from our booster shots yesterday, both The Mr and I were actually feeling pretty good. Though I had anticipated it being a down day, despite feeling pretty good I decided to camp out under the kotatsu and work on some of my gift projects. For most of the day I worked […]

Blogmas Day 10: Booster and change of plans

After getting our boosters today The Mr and I walked through Cross St Market. Brian had not been there since they opened after renovating. And since Miss Zee was at the groomers it was the perfect time for him to check it out. Of course the donuts were what caught our eye but we also […]

Blogmas Day 9: One pair down and another started

As predicted correctly for once I managed to get the socks off the needles. The ends need weaving in and then they will get blocked. I was finishing up a netflix true crime so I started my second pair. These will also be a gift. I’m using some Knit Picks Felici self striping yarn that […]

Blogmas Day 8: The tree is decorated

We finished the tree this evening. It is such a pretty little tree. It’s smaller than last year’s so we actually did not use all of the ornaments we had. We did use all of our favorites though. I’ll do a little tree tour later in the days to come. Our collection contains mostly vintage […]

Blogmas Day 7: Down Day

Today was a work day… and a busy one at that. So today’s post is going to be a short and sweet one (the sweet part will be questionable). I had started this brooch in early fall but only this week figured out how I wanted to finish it. I liked the idea of taking […]

Blogmas Day 6: Yarn by Spinnit

Today Nancy Newman dropped off her yarn to sell at Mark Supik and Co’s holiday shop. I got a good look of her gorgeous hand spun yarn when we shared a table together at the Fredrick Fiber Festival early last month. When talk of the holiday shop began we knew that we wanted to include […]
