Another year just sped by and we are almost at Christmas again.Â This will be the first Christmas we have spent at home in several years, my four year old doesn’t even remember what I Christmas tree looks like in our house!Â I’m very much looking forward to our time off, this last month or two has been tough going, between multiple illness in the house, people traveling and of course the dark, cold early morning starts…..
In fact while I’m enjoying a few weeks parenting alone I have resorted to bribery to get everyone up, dressed and out to school on time in the morning.Â Everyone who is downstairs and fully dressed by 7.30 gets themselves a cooked breakfast!Â I’m wondering if the appeal will last until DH comes home or if they end up getting sick of it.
I’ve got so many wonderful yarns lined up for different projects at the moment I’m almost feeling dizzy with choice.Â Current projects at various stages of finish, knitting are planning involve, drops Nepal (have a lovely wrap just finished courtesy of Rosemary from The Constant Knitter), some Rowan Felted Tweed, Noro Kuroyon, and my newest arrival Madelinetosh Pashima.Â Its almost unbearable when you want to knit them all at the same time!
I wanted to send all of you lovely knitters out there aÂ little pre-Christmas treat.Â I’m going to put a 20% reduction on ALL my self-published patterns and e-books until Christmas day.Â If you have a knitter friend you can go here on Ravelry and send it as a gift directly…. you even get to add a note.
I’m also very excited to see that 3 of my Interweave patterns have gone up for sale on Interweave Knits online store here. If you have been looking for Trellis and Vine Pullover, Braided Hooded Tunic or the Teacup pinafore you can buy them all individually now for $5.50.
