Question for everyone. Do any of you get a pop up ad for an amazon card? It completely takes over the web page and you can’t hit the back arrow to get back here; you have to close the website. This is Knitting Paradise is the only website where it happens. I may send a message to Admin about it.


I have had this happen several times. Admin is aware of it and is working on it.

Here's our Christmas card this year. It's a picture I got last winter. I put the scarves on. Gary came up with the "So, Where's The Beach?!?" I just get 4x6's printed up and get name labels and put our Christmas greetings on them and stick them to the back of the photo. So quick and easy. Our church has mailboxes for us all (it's not a very large church, but large enough), and it is so quick and easy to do.

We got our Christmas village up, bought the last of the gifts and got some packages ready to go yesterday, put up the tree today-needs to be decorated, and got the Christmas socks up. And we have a gazillion felt Christmas socks of different patterns, sized from 3-4 inches, with bells etc, sewn on them. A friend of the family had a sister that made them for friends and family-one a year. I think she started in the 1950's. A couple have actual old sleigh bells on them-they sound so musically. We got one for each of the kids, each Christmas. And when they left home they took their socks with them. Then the lady who make them died, (not sure when, but I know we have a sock dated 2000) and we got some of hers. And my friend is now 100 years old and in a nursing home. So we got all of hers. They are amazing.

Anyway, I am ready for Christmas, earlier than I have ever been. And it feels great.

This morning we saw a fox in our yard. We saw him jump all 4 feet up in the air and came down 2 ft away from where he started and caught a mouse. I did manage to get some pics, but two of them are through a cloudy window. Turned out pretty good anyway.

Very nice photographs! And yes, can see the tail.

Caryn -- that is most kind. I've attached pictures of the various designs. Even though the pages are on their side, I think you can see the patterns.


Oh my! That is stunning. What a wonderful item to have in the pattern library!

Thanks, Joyce- of course I don't have the range of outlets, unless I shop on line, and then it is so hard to gauge colour! I so much prefer weaving in wool, but am most taken with the braided join that I found thanks to DeEtta.


I like this join also! Have used it several times and it has worked great.

Thank you Julie and Norma! I have figured out a way to postpone the second poncho. I really do need to get busy and make some tiny ornaments for the tiny tree. That way I can make a switch without leaving big gaps. Not sure hubby will even notice, he's not the observant type. Which would be even better! (If he didn't notice, I mean)

Julie- you have to check the labels carefully on the different brands of "cakes" yarn since they are not all the same. I didn't want the wool blend, so I got the one at Joann's. Choosing a color combination was difficult. Guess after all the years of doing things myself, it was hard to pick one that was already dyed to someone else's preferences. Not very impressed with the color combinations available, and most don't offer solid colors in the same weight and fiber content to use with the cakes. Also not impressed with the abrupt color changes. So....I'm probably not going to be one that rushes to the store to load up on cakes yarn when they go on sale. I would be better off getting the colors I want to work a pattern, changing the colors when I wanted to. More loose ends, I know. But I've gotten much better at working in loose ends, and it's worth doing to get the colors to change at a place I think is good. At least I've had the experience of trying it!

I like your reasoning. Some of the color changes are rather abrupt, and not always in a good spot.

What an excellent way to make a point and be humorous with it.

So true! Even though the mother unit kept telling me to change my attitude before she *&*&* it out of me! Didn't work!

Hello and welcome.

That is lovely! And even with my "halo" I just might wear one like it!

Pretty, thank you.
