Well, the holidays are behind us and things are returning to “normal”. I hope that each and every one of you had a blessed Christmas. I love the lights and decorations, the time with family and friends, the promise of hope that the gift of the Christ child brings. I am always a little bit bummed when the lights go out, the tree is taken down, and decorations stored away for another year. However, I still have the joy in my heart that Christmas is all about.
The new year is a great time to put old habits to rest. To look ahead to the new year and a fresh start. Turns out it is also a good time to put discontinued yarns to rest, and make way for fresh, new yarns. Check out the website for specials on discontinued yarns. I can’t believe it’s time for spring yarn already, but it is. We have more yarn on order than we do space; there is nothing to do but discontinue some current yarns. It’s always hard to say goodbye to good yarn, but it makes it easier knowing it will go to good homes. Want to take advantage of our big Out with the Old, In with the New sale?

Why am I the only one who has TEN on her list (notice comments from previous post entitled “With a Little Help from some friends . . “? Don’t you guys really have other things stashed away that you need encouragement getting through? Carli, I had to mix the list order up a little bit more than what *we* had originally decided. October is almost here and I want Vicky’s prayer shawl to be done. I think I’m going to stash away the Mexico Socks and only work on them during class time. I’m seriously feeling the need to start a sweater in the new Shepherd’s Wool so I’m diligently working to get the projects that belong to other people off the list. Cross off, done, finished, yeah —
- Cross Stitch Scarf
- Peg’s Sweater
- Becky’s Sweater.Â
Retired to Hibernating status: Filigree Lace Shawl. In the bag and working on:
- Vicky’s shawl
- Penny’s Baby Sweater repair,
- Marilyn’s sweater finishing. Â
- Ring of Lace shawl — my travel knitting but I dropped a stitch late during UFO night and I now need to do a repair. I’ll tackle it tonight at horse. Â
Notice I have not yet added more to the list, but when I do its going to be Shepherd’s Wool projects. That stuff is just wayyyyy too yummy to ignore for much longer. Oh, and I’m working on a postcard mailing for an upcoming sale — keep your ears tuned! Lea-Ann
