Let it SNOW!!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hand knits in front of Poinsettia Tree
(Echaness & Irish Moss)

Let it Snow!

The weather outside is frightful!
(We've been stuck at home for a week! Wooly is going stir crazy. I'm happily knitting in my pajamas. All festivities have been cancelled.)

But the Fair Isle (Ransom) is so delightful!
(...*fake snore*... must sleep! Santa's coming!...)

Since we've no place to go... Let it snow, let is snow, let it snow!
(Go Brother GO... whoo hoo!!)

Our trip to the 'Zoo'

This was after we got our picture taken (before the snow) in front of the Poinsettia Tree.

Wooly & the Lion traded hats...

Wooly really wanted to bring home the Cheetah...
He thought the Hyena - bottom right - was cool too...
(But, can you image the chaos with Kamati & Smoothie?!)

This guy realllly wanted to come home with me!
(I didn't check the price, the Lion was $500, so why ruin the joy?!)

We didn't see any Gemsbok/Oryx (Kamati), so he is truly unique.

Hope you experience as much joy as Mr K in the snow... this holiday season!

We'll have a great time in 2009!
Got your list (Queue) ready?!

That's a lovely picture of the two of you! Hmm, I think he should choose one the same size as Kamati & Smoothie.

Over here in the mid-west, we've heard so many stories of how OR & WA

Poor Wooly! You should teach him how to knit ;-)

Hope you have a Merry Christmas.

What a great hand knit sweater picture! You both look so festive!
I'm sorry about having "cabin fever".
It sure helps to be able to knit the time away, doesn't it?

Have a wonderful Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Great sweater shot!!

You have so much snow over there! It looks lovely -- and what a great excuse to stay home and knit!!!

I have been thinking about my queue for 2009 -- "Gayle" slightly modified from the British Sheep Breeds Collection is next...might start it later today...and Alan will model his Thwaite (easy quick knit).

Have a great one! and all the best for 2009!

Love the picture of you and Wooly. You both look so warm and happy. Lovely work, absolutely lovely. And that little guy of yours looks ecstatic in his snow covered self. Enjoy the knitting time. It is a gift.

Michele- Such a lovely pic of you and Wooly.

And Mr. K got some snow- that's amazing.

Brigitte said...

Those are great pictures! Mr. K. looks like he's loving the snow.

Wow, $500 for the lion? Do you know how much yarn that would buy? And you're right - Kamati and Smoothie would not have been pleased. At. All.
