Good Friday to You and Knitting for Christmas

I wanted to take a minute and wish everyone a good day today. It's the start of the week-end and the weather has been very nice as of late.

I have been busy trying to finish 2 pairs of socks I started a while back for Christmas presents, as well as a pair of felted slippers and a pair of felted mittens too.

I got this idea for my kids & nieces for Christmas and I hope I can make it work. I have decided to do my own 12 days of Christmas for them. Everyday for 12 days I would like to give them some small homemade thing. It may be a pair of slippers, a pair of mitts, a mug with hot chocolate, etc. you get the idea. I haven't come up with something for all 12 days yet and if anyone out there reads this thing, I am open to ideas. Please feel free to share them and tell me what you think of this idea.

Please keep in mind that they need to be fairly quick to make. There are 8 altogether ranging in ages from 4 to 24 both boys and girls.If I actually manage to pull this off, I may consider doing it for others in the family as well.

Until next time!

1st day of school

Can you believe it? First day of the new school year. Jake boarded his bus with smiles and he is so excited about seeing his buddies from last year. Houston goes on Thursday for his first day in SK. I still can't believe school is starting already. It seems that they just finished school.

This is a sign for me to get busy and start thinking about fall, making Christmas gifts, cleaning up the gardens and all the other fun fall things.
