First Night of Advent



We have our First Candle burning- we are doing votives instead of pillars and all green (didn't have purple and pink)- I will add a White one by Christmas day!

We added Sand Dollars and Sea glass to celebrate the festival of minerals. Also the first light is for Hope!

A nice tradition to start!

2-st RT

A new knitting abbreviation I learned.

Basically it's a right twist. I had to you tube how to do it because the instructions in the pattern were not making sense.

K 2nd st on LH needle, then K first st and sl both sts off needle.

was not making sense...

the video showed me

k 2tog - not taking them off the LH needle.

slide 2 sts apart and knit the first stitch bringing the yarn through between both stitches

slide both stitches off.

if you are reading this and it seems like a foreign language then you must not be a knitter!


Here is the video!

Reverie

I'm dreaming of owning a yarn store. There is only one store I like and it's on the other side of town.

I don't know if I would be a good yarn store owner. I get so overwhelmed when I go in. I just want the person working to pick out the yarn for me.

I tell her what I want to make and she goes through the million of skeins and comes out with something wonderful that will end up being just beautiful.

I am really missing my camera cord and have a new camera on my Christmas list. I would rather get a new camera than buy a cord for the current camera.

My phone photo quality simply sucks....

Here is my current project.



Not my typical color choice. I tend to go for the same colors... green.... gray... black.... I put all those colors back and went for this soft blue.

I have two projects that I have been asked to make for Holiday gifts. I am totally excited to sell some of my work. I finally made something for someone who wants me to make more for their friends and they will pay for them. Basically charging for the yarn and a little more for labor.

It would be nice to get the cost of yarn down. I have expensive taste. Again back to the yarn shop what I do pick out is almost double what I really want to pay!

Maybe my reverie will follow me to sleep! Good Night!

First

The first Christmas decoration went up today!


A little night light I found at end of Christmas sale last year. When the light heats up the water in the glass candle the glitter moves around.

Not the best photo- still looking for the camera battery charger. Might have to get some disposable ones for the holidays!

Advent starts next Sunday! Thinking of my wreath!

Yikes

The camera battery is about dead and I think we lost the cord to the charger. We have an odd cord that goes to nothing and a camera charger with no cord. Thinking we misplaced when traveling in Maine. That was the last time we charged the battery. If anyone from Maine is reading this- please check your charger cords and see if you to have an odd cord and are missing a charger cord!

Thanks,
