…happy new year and a bit of housekeeping…

Happy New Year!  We have just come through possibly our best holiday season ever.  Everyone was here and boy did we have a good time especially with the grandkids.  There is nothing like seeing the holidays through the eyes of a child to get you to remember what the season is really all about.  IMG_3864

The house is pretty bare and very quiet now that the decorations are down and the grandkids have gone home.  This time of year is always hard for me.  I love all of the craziness and fun that surrounds the holidays so when it comes to a halt it takes me a little time to adjust.  But on to the next great thing…

The Rose City Yarn Crawl is coming March 5-8 and the Mystery Knit-A-Long is gearing up!  The pattern is available here.  You’ll get the pre-clue now and the first clue will come January 28th.  This will give you time to select your yarn, get your needles, swatch and be all set when the first clue comes out.  I can’t wait to see which yarns everyone picks and if you are inclined, join me at the cast-on parties:

January 28th – Twisted ~  5-8 pm

January 29th – For Yarn’s Sake ~ 4-7:30 pm

I’d love to see you at one of these parties!  I’ll have some prizes and can’t wait to see which yarn you have chosen!

We’ve just finished up the Shifted Shades KAL with Black Trillium.  If you missed the pattern you can find it here and if you would like the yarn (which is gorgeous) you can purchase it here.  I love this pattern and it has become my go to, car knitting project.  I want to thank Melanie for including me in her KAL calendar for 2014.  It was a pleasure!

So that’s the house keeping portion of our program.  Now on to the next things on my list…preparing for Madrona and a couple of new patterns coming soon!

May your 2015 be your best year yet!
