Happy Christmas!

No unraveling in my world which is a great for a holiday week. I am making good progress on those sleeves. I cast on a Christmas Eve hat (a tradition for me) which gave me an opportunity to use my new stitch marker (handmade by one of our daughters). Tomorrow our girls are giving me the gift of time. We will head to Churchmouse Yarn, stop for coffee, lunch, and just enjoy being together and sharing our love for yarn.

I finished The Dutch House and Washington Black this week. The Dutch House was my favorite book for 2019 and Washington Black is in my top five. Before the New Year I will share my reading plans for 2020 (which involves reading my own books and continuing to declutter those that are not calling my name).

Happy Christmas. Off to visit Kat and then join my dad for lunch before a quiet evening at home.

  1. Merry Merry! The stitch marker is fascinating. Enjoy your time with daughters and your dad! Moving the Dutch House up in my TBR queue – so many rave reviews; I am intrigued.
    Til tomorrow,

  2. I think the idea of starting a hat on Christmas Eve is a great tradition. Have fun today yarn shopping and lunching with your girls!

  3. I have those same feelings of The Dutch House! I got the gift of yarn yesterday too and I swatched and cast on a Felix Cardigan last night! (And, the yarn for my Pheasant Sweater is on its way) January is going to be a good month for sweaters!

  4. I hope you had a great Christmas! I’m so glad you loved The Dutch House — in a couple of years I plan to listen to the Tom Hank audio version. I hope you enjoyed Churchmouse Yarn – I’ve perused their website a thousand times and it looks so lovely!
