The Holiday Rounds Begin

Our Knit Night at the Salem Library was tonight and so it wins the prize for earliest holiday get-together. We were a smaller crowd than normal. With it being so close to Thanksgiving, I think a lot of folks are all tuckered out from traveling. But we had a good group, lots of yummy stuff (a couple of us are on Weight Watchers, and others were kind to remember we were, so there were selections to eat that didn't break the point bank!)

We also had our traditional Dirty Santa game, and twice I had my hands on some of Catie's handspun (I won it last year!), but it was filtched from my clutches both times...(sigh)

Still, there was another coveted prize (in my mind there were several really good things) and I managed to end up with the little guy on the left of this photo:

My lamb collection is growing! (I even have 2 knitted lamb ornaments that I use on my Christmas tree which I think I'll pull out and keep with this crew. They'll be more comfortable with "their own kind" don't you think?

Saturday is the Three Bags Full charity knitting event in Blacksburg, sponsored by Mosaic Yarn Shop. We're planning to drive up, KnitIntegrity and I, but I'm hearing now that there might be snow on Saturday with "light accumulations." Since Blacksburg is on top of a mountain (a plateau really) it can get bad up there quickly.

I love my Forester, but I'm not sure we'll push it, if the snow starts coming down. But I've got my fingers crossed it holds off for most of the day - we need to knit a hat for the charity while we're there!!

So think warm thoughts for us, okay?

(And I'll try hard to remember to take photos, I promise)

I'm so glad you had a good time with your knitting group! Don't you just LOVE Christmas?

Hope to see you at 3 Bags! I am going up and spend Friday night there and pop over in the morning to the event.

You and Diana please be careful!

Hi Knitnana,
It's been a while since I visited, so I enjoyed getting caught up. Fun that you have a lamb collection and so appropriate! Glad that you have a Forrester so that you can make it up the mountain snow or shine, I'll hope for the latter.

I fear the weather is going to mess up our plans for tomorrow.

I like your lamb collection!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
