Merry Christmas!

Thank you, all who have purchased yarn or scarves from me in the past year. Together, we have created many amazing things! Have a Happy Holiday, and I hope to meet up with you again in 2008!

I made it! Scarf season is officially over, and I took my listings down for a week so there won't be any confusion about availability for Christmas. I shipped the last 6 scarves this morning, for a total of 54 scarves I've knit in 2007, most of them in the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thank you all who purchased, and I appreciate your kind comments !

Over the weekend, I was featured on the homepage of Etsy for my Tropical Rainbow yarn, and I sold two skeins of that, plus 3 other skeins from my shop. I was glad, as I haven't been promoting my yarn much lately, what with scarves and choir practice taking up much of my time. (Our cantata went fabulously, and no one threw their fruitcake back at us!)

I'm planning to curl up with my favorite Christmas short story book tonight, and take a long deserved break. Hope you are doing some of your favorite things, too!

Traffic and Ice!!

I opened my e-mail from Site Meter, expecting my usual 20 or so visitors in a week. Nope 280 visitors this week. I was sure it was a typo, but no....I managed to sell some things to other bloggers, who blogged about me! Gotta love networking.'s a post about a pair of socks knit with the yarn below:
It's called Turkey Time.

And here's one about a scarf I knit:
This picture is actually of a second one I knit, because the person saw it here on my blog! (Which I really appreciate....I mean, how fun is it to blog when no one is looking at it!)

I've also had a fair amount of traffic from Ravelry. I love that place!!
Otherwise, I am buried both in scarf orders AND the ice storm that is going on today. Here's to hoping we keep our power!!

Finished stockings!

I finally finished the stocking for my friend. I took out the large snowman, and went with some smaller ones for a more vintage look. She was very pleased! I hope to have these up for production next Christmas, with a variety of designs.

This little ornament stocking I knit for the ornament exchange our Mom's group has. It gets rather heated with stealing and such (we do it White Elephant style). This is modified from a full sized stocking idea in the Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts edition. It also was well received, but alas, it was opened last so no one got to fight over it. (But I'm still glad one of my friends has it.) Next year I must use more enticing wrapping!!
