Suddenly the weather has turned cool and fall-like and I remembered that Christmas is coming.
Scratch that. I have kids so I never quite forget that Christmas is coming. I’ve also just finished (except for blocking – isn’t that an entirely knitterly qualification to make?) a snowflake stole that I’ve been working on off-and-on all summer so it may be that I never stopped thinking about Christmas this last year. I’ve been cataloging ideas all along. I started a whole post listing them before remembering that my husband might (be the only one) read(ing) this and some attempt at mystique should be maintained.
I can mention these adorable Kiriki little animal embroidery kits I ordered from Purl Soho. They are meant for Christmas stockings. Only time will tell if they make it there. I have a laissez-faire attitude when it comes to holiday making. If it doesn’t get done in time for this year there’s always next. Or never. Whatevs.
I’ve done loads of cross-stitch, some pulled thread and open work embroidery, some crewel, and knitted lots of toys, but this will be my first time tackling a project quite like this. Time to move from the Christmas-planning to the Christmas-making.
