Merry Christmas – 2018

8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will to men.

15 And it came to pass, the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. (St. Luke 2:8-16)

May you and your families have a very blessed Christmas Day.

My Christmas Knitting Done :)

Basia Hat

My last knitted gift for Christmas, YEA!!  This pattern is call Basia and is a really interesting and easy knit.  Just enough texture to keep your attention but an easy texture to memorize :).  I kettle dyed this with an acid dye and it is a deeper blue than my picture shows, I’m not much of a photographer.  This is my 2nd Basia hat (made one as a Christmas gift last year) and I knit this with the same sport/dk weight yarn I had processed at the mill from the Polypay fleece I was given.  I have only one more skein of the yarn left out of 11.  I do have two more fleeces in the trunk of my car, but haven’t had the extra money to have them processed into roving or yarn.  If my car would stop being a money pit I could send them off to process :P.

1st Snow 2017-2018 This was the first snow of our 2017-2018 winter.  This was a week & 1/2 ago or so.  I should have put it up before, but…  It wasn’t much, just a dusting, and it has since melted.  We are suppose to get some snow tomorrow morning and Monday, so just in time for Christmas, tho it isn’t suppose to be much, maybe a 1/4 to 1/2 inch.  This, so far, is a very low moisture winter for us, and I won’t complain about the warmer weather, much better than -40, tho I think Jan will bring much colder temps than  we have been having.

“Lift up your head and be of good cheer; for behold, the time is at hand, and on this night shall the sign be given, and on the morrow come I into the world, to show unto the world that I will fulfil all that which I have caused to be spoken by the  mouth of my holy prophets” 3 Nephi 1:13

May you all have a blessed and wonderful Christmas, and may the peace of this season be with you through out the New Year.

Another Hat Finished

2X2 Ribbed Hat This is a two by two ribbed hat I just finished.  This is for a little family member :).  It looks purple but it is a bright blue, not sure why I am not able to capture colors properly sometimes, sigh.  I just can’t seem to quit knitting hats, this one is a relaxing knit.  I would tell you where to find this pattern, but I copied it to a word document and the name doesn’t come up in a google search. 😦  But there are plenty of patterns just like this one on the internet :).

I have one more hat to knit before Christmas, I’ll post a picture of it after Christmas :P.  I have just been so driven to knit lately, good thing tho, it’s relaxing and creative all at the same time, and who can’t use relaxing and creative at Christmas time :).

I have several new Christmas Knot Bags made for my Etsy shop.  These two are embroidered.  Was fun picking out the designs from all the designs I’ve purchased and amassed over the years.  I wanted them to be simple but elegant :).

The two below are some really pretty Christmas fabrics I saw.  They were calling me to make them.  So many beautiful fabrics, so little time lol.

I did finish the knitted hat from the polypay yarn, but sadly I forgot to take a picture of it before I gave it to them.  I still have one more to make, so I will try to remember to get a picture of this one before giving it.  I have the skein rolled into a ball and have begun casting on.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving season and preparing for an equally wonderful Christmas season. 🙂

1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

2 (and this taxing was the first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, unto Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David)

5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger: because there was no room for them in the inn.

8 And there were in the same country sheperds abiding in the filed, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host prasing God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

(St Luke 1:1-14)
