Merry ho ho!

I wish you all a very happy Christmas and many pleasant things in the new year.

I'm a few short hours away from finishing my Christmas knitting (that's cutting it close, eh?) and the dyeing is done for the year. We'll start anew in January with all sorts of vim and yarn-dye-friendly acid.

Good tidings to you!

I almost forgot! There's a 10% coupon on the entire Etsy shop from now through to the end of January. Happy shopping!

Ho ho ho!

Well, things are sure moving along! I've sent off my form for Fibres West and hope that my application is accepted. I've asked for a 10deep by 5wide booth (half size) and the Tiger Friends and I are bouncing ideas around for the booth-that-shall-be-fantastic.

In other news, I have a giant custom order for Woolly Woolly that will become a jacket, so I hope that we'll see pictures of it soon. It's a reasonably priced wool and perfect for outerwear. It would also make a nice vest ... do I need another Angostura? I think I might!

In other news, the sweater for hubby that inspired the original chocopoo colourway is coming along, albeit slowly. I've confused my brain and fingers by knitting a felted bag in bulky weight, so when I go back to knitting on my worsted weight sweater, my brain thinks it's fingering weight and I lose a bit of love for the sweater. But alas, I'm past the arm hole spot now and hope to have the back finished before the end of the year. I have to thank dear hubby, though, because he's much smaller than he used to be (-50 pounds or so) so it's not as painful to knit as it would have been a year ago.

More news coming soon ... I hope!
