Am I the only one, or is everyone having a hard time figuring out what day of the week it is? With so many people having a long weekend last week and now more holiday this week, Wednesday felt like Monday, Sunday like a work day, and well.... this morning does not feel like a Monday to me. Nine inches of snow was forecast to fall during the night. C and I went out for a walk around 7pm. to see the Christmas lights before they are gone for the year. It was snowing lightly. Made for a really pretty walk, snow falling in front of all the lights and felt rather well... Christmasy. A bit late to start to get into the mood, I know. My season is delayed. I work up to and through the season, not really getting much of a slow down until the poinsettias are ready to be given the heave ho or disappear from workplace to homes. Then, along comes New Year's Eve...ooops! Here we are! Another year has sped on by and this time tomorrow we will be on the other side.
I spent some time this weekend plying from full bobbins, checking the status on projects and yep, starting something new. If it were anything else I might have waited for the New Year. That plan was dashed when Anne emailed me a copy of the Oh! Canada pattern she'd just finished up. Go check it out. She did it again with a soft, warm wrap, a shawl to keep shoulders warm or be scrunched for a cozy scarf. And, though I haven't seen one finished, the pattern includes a scarf version. We had talked about doing a kit. I thought it over and decided that although kits seem to be very popular, NOT with this yarn. I have such a limited supply spun for me that I couldn't see dyeing the same color over and over with it. Besides, it felt right for everyone to put their personal taste on this special project by at least choosing the color that they'd prefer. Instead, what I decided to do is this, Ball and Skein will give a 10% discount for the yarn if you buy the Oh! Canada pattern from Knitspot. There is a code on the pattern that you can use when you check out for your discount. This is for a limited time only or until I run out of this run of yarn. You have to buy from the website, and from the yarn available. No special orders unless you check with me first. It is sort of a make your own kit, fair enough?
pictures??? next post. Have a Happy and Safe New Year's Eve! See you on the other side.
