I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
All these years I have lived in NYC it has not snowed once on Christmas! I am hoping against all hope that this year it will be different. I want white Christmas more than anything.
If my wish won’t be granted then I ask that it will at least be cold out there, and no sun in sight!
While I have been day dreaming about snow I have been doing some x-mas knitting:
A simple bobble stitch, a pretty little pattern. I used unspun icelandic held with a thread of sequins string.
Another hat and another simple pattern. I love how the leaves turned out in this yarn, it’sLamb’s Pride 85% wool/15% Mohair.
Leg warmers to go with the hat. This yarn is lovely to work with and ideas for more designs kept popping up as I was knitting with it.
Now, this is not knitting related but this little fellow is just so adorable I had to share him:
I painted him and planned to put him on our Christmas tree with the other ornaments. But I have a set (used to be 3 but 1 broke) candle holders that I’d grown tired of and wasn’t sure what to do with. Usually I put pine cones in them for Christmas but this year I just wasn’t feeling it.
SO, I got this bright idea to make a little winter wonderland for my little Rudolph! I put some fake snow in the bottom, attached a branch I found out side, had to put some snow on that as well, and now he has a home. I have to say that I felt a little claustrophobic for him when I first put him in there and put the top on, but he seems to like it!
