look a lot like Christmas.
I love this time of year when I can decorate for Christmas. I put the tree up and decorated the house this past weekend which is about 2 weeks earlier than normal. All of the ornaments on our tree in the family room are handmade which makes it really special. Next year I am going to put a smaller tree in the dining room and I am planning to fill it with tiny knit sweater ornaments. I designed my own cardigan sweater pattern which I will share on my blog sometime in January. I am hoping to release a new design every week and have a KAL. So watch for the announcement sometime in late December.
The stockings are hung…just waiting for Santa. All of our stockings are hand knit. My mother made mine over 50 years ago (second stocking from the left) and she made my son’s 21 years ago (3rd stocking from the left) and although this will be my first Christmas without her every time I look at our stockings I have happy memories. I hand knit my husband’s, stepson’s and our dog Bailey’s. Yes, even Bailey has a hand knit stocking. His is the one with the fire hydrants.
And here’s part of my snowmen collection. I think last count was upwards of 70 snowmen throughout the house.
With only 3 weeks left until Christmas everyone is rushing to get their hand knit gifts done in time. Don’t forget to add the perfect finishing touch to your gifts-A personalized label and gift tag. We have several styles in our Etsy store, even some holiday themed ones. What gifts are you knitting this season? I would love to hear about them. Please share them in the comments. Happy knitting and Happy Holidays!
