We've been amazed at the creativity of the tree decorations we've received for our Christmas tree - actually, we were awfully glad we were drawing a winner at random, because it would have been near impossible to pick a winner otherwise.
But we have a winner, and it's Ruth from Cork, who sent us that delightful little ornament, complete with sparkly sequin baubles and a bell at the top. A Christmas tree to decorate a Christmas tree - how meta is that!
Ruth wins a rather handsome prize - a copy of Debbie Bliss's Knits to Give
, a pair of Peace Fleece needles with little Christmas trees on the ends, and a tidy tool case from Knitpro (which can either be a hook case or a circular needle case).
This is also a good time to announce our opening hours over the Christmas/New Year season. We're closing at 6.00pm on Friday December 23rd and re-opening on Tuesday January 3rd at 11.00am.
And now we've got to plan what we're making over the break. There's a very snuggly and enormous Swallowtail
in Louisa Harding Thistle
in the works, and a Wispy cardigan
in Hedgehog Fibres Cashmere is underway. There's also been swatching for the cardigan like that one that Cameron Diaz wore in "Holiday"
. What about you? We'd love to hear what you've planned in the comments!
