My Favorite Holiday Craft

cup and knitting

Although I show all traits of a crochet person throughout the year, I have noticed that there is a different kind of craft that allures me during the holiday season.

It’s knitting.

Sweet knitting.

I don’t really understand why this keeps happening to me, but I can see clearly that each year around Christmas I find myself working enthusiastically on a new knitting project.

Maybe it’s all about the gorgeous sound of needles at work that adds to the delightfulness of holidays and makes this time even more spectacular. Who knows…


Christmas knitting

This year I am working on a special project that is making me very, very happy. I can’t wait to show you the result.

And, by the way, do you have any special craft or hobby that calls your name during the holidays? Do share!

With lots of love,


Merry Christmas!

Oh Christmas Tree…

Hi friends!

I am stopping by to tell you a quick hi and ask how you’re doing. Hopefully everything is fine in your world. Here in our family we are slowly starting to tick off the items on our Christmas to do list – the shopping, the baking, the cleaning, listening to sweet Christmas songs. Lovely, lovely time indeed. Oh, and what I wanted to show you today is a thing that’s made me very happy a couple of days ago – my little white office Christmas tree got decorated, this time it even has a few of my crocheted ornaments to display. Yay!! Cheeeeeerful!
