Christmas was pretty nice. I actually got something that I wanted this year, and from an unexpected source
And I love it!
There are 3 things that I wanted for Christmas this year: yarn, baking gear, and tea. I want yarn and tea year round, but for some reason, no one here has picked up on that. This year, we pulled names for Christmas and I got my little brother and he got me. My request was for some yarn, but after a few days of thinking about it, he just gave me money.
I've been walking around with this yarn since it got here last week, squeezing it and smelling it and nuzzling it. I don't know what I'll make just yet. I just LOVE it. It's something that I would buy for myself if I wasn't in the habit of spending every free or extra cent on some one else.
And it's not blue! It's just nice. Blue is my favorite color, so I tend to buy all things blue, but the smaller skein that I got looks like a sunset in techni-color.
I wish that I knew how to knit because that yarn would make some killer lacy arm warmers.
After all the hoopla over Christmas (with the parties and gift giving, cooking and baking and what not) has died down, I still have my Christmas yarn next to my bed waiting for an idea.
Thank You, Mini for getting me just what I wanted for Christmas ♥
I've also got to thank Monet for helping me send along warm wishes to a friend this holiday. She's got a shop on Etsy that you can check out for roving, yarn, crochet and knit goods, stitch markers and maybe a little more.
I've decided not to wait until after the new year started to open my shops back up. I've still got my sales up and running, so if you were eyeballing something there before Christmas and thought that you'd missed the sale... Shop on, my friend!
