Santa Likes Me

Did any of you get a chocolate bar in your stocking with a message like this from Santa? Apparently, the big guy has noticed me.

Christmas was made far more gratifying this year than in years past because I made a larger proportion of my gifts than ever before. If I had my way, we would all give handcrafted gifts exclusively and the only things we'd purchase would be other handcrafted treasures.
I say that, but the truth is that Christmas wouldn't
really be as good without things like fancy crystal wineglasses (not handcrafted) and colorful argyle socks (also not handcrafted, though they could be).

Josh's Christmas Scarf
Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky in cream & grey heather and
doubled Tahki Donegal Tweed homespun color 890.
Needles: Size 11
Inspiration: I found a version of the Men's Rustic Scarf by Joelle Hoverson on Ravelry. It was made by Morgiane (who I think is without a blog). Mine turned out very much like her's, but the colors are slightly different. It was just so darn pretty, I had to replicate it. Thanks for the inspiration Morgiane!

My dad has been wondering when my blog will get the attention he thinks it deserves. He hasn't been complaining about my absence exactly, just grumbling politely: "So, I visited your blog today but there was nothing new...Just wondering...".

Well, nothing make me feel more appreciated than polite, grumbling inquiries. I love to log my crafty adventures here and it's nice to hear that my dear dad enjoys reading them.

There are so many things to cram into only one post so, I'll spread the goodness over the next several weeks.

Until next time - Happy New Year!

oh so nice to have you back in the blogging business!
