Dear December….

For the love of all things holy, I really feel like it snuck up on me this year!!  I am not prepared in any way, shape or form.  Our calendar has been chuck full of stuff and I live in a week to week mode of getting the boy to where he needs to be and before you know it, it’s Thanksgiving and it was late this year, so yeah, things are not looking good.

Our renovation is finally complete with the carpet installed on Friday.  Finally we can get the tree from the crawl space and make the boy happy.  Hubby went down there and discovered a burst water pipe and lets just say I was happy I was grocery shopping and there wasn’t any cell service when that was discovered.  I dreaded a call to a plumber on a Saturday and all I could see was $$$$$$.  Bye the way, the tree went up and the lights didn’t work.  I thought it best to just walk away from the whole damn mess.  For tomorrow will be a better day for sure.

I am thankful that whatever knitting I had to do for Christmas is practically done.  I am finishing the hat for my nephew and that is it.  I should try to finish the scarf for my hubby….I should really find it first.

I have been squeezing in dying whenever I can.  Trying to divide my time has become such a challenge.

Today I introduced our newest yarn, Yankee Posh.  It’s a real beauty.  It is a fingering weight yarn that consists of 70 % Merino, 20% Cashmere and 10% Nylon.  It is positively sumptuous.  I didn’t get to dye as much as I had hoped but here is a sample of the beauty of this yarn.

I love this color way so much!!  I hope you will love it.  I plan on dying more this week.  I will also be adding some beautiful lace in holiday colors in a day or so.

My sweater is a mere hour of knitting away from being finished.  I think I should go do that, don’t you.

See you soon! I hope that your holidays are shaping up better than they are here.

Happy Knitting,
