Sometimes, last minute and entirely unexpected Christmas knitting are the best moments of the day.

A phone call with my son last night sparked this knitting and it warms my heart!

I think can get these done today so they can go in the mail tomorrow…at least that’s the plan!

Virtual Advent Tour – Day 16

Virtual Advent Tour – Day 16

Today, in a rare Sunday Post, I am participating again in Sprite’s Virtual Advent Tour! And, with just 8 days until Christmas today is all about Genevieve!

Dear Genevieve,

When your mom was little, she loved Sesame Street!

And, we would all watch The Snowman together – it was one of our favorites!

I hope you like these too!

Love, Nana

My amaryllis seem to be off to a better start than last year!

This week I can see lovely changes from the previous update!

We got an early start to the weekend last night! Steve is using his last vacation day for 2018 today!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

It is dawning on me that keeping pace with knitting a full repeat each day on my ADVENTurer shawl is going to be a challenge. Last night, as I sat down to begin my Not-So-Peaceful Knitting again the reality of that fact became very apparent.

And, that is okay…

Because what could be better in the waning days of December to have something to look forward to beyond Christmas!

So, today on my list is to do some Peaceful Knitting and focus my mind on the joy of making.

And, to get outside to do some Peace Walking in the brisk cold air today – a very good way to clear out the cobwebs!

Happy Tuesday everyone! May your day be marked by spectacular moments of peace!

You Make It Feel Like Christmas

You Make It Feel Like Christmas

It has been a rough couple weeks at Casa del KatKnits, Gentle Reader… I passed my 5th anniversary of moving to Pittsburgh on the 19th and shortly after that a case of Homesick for Holland hit…hard. And, honestly – I have shed a few tears by myself and even allowed myself to have a bit of a one-person pity party. This is not a good look, trust me, and I have been working on getting myself out of this funk. I don’t do melancholy well… at all, but every thought seemed to be focused back to all the things I think I am missing.

Thanks to Kym, I did have something else to try to focus on for some of this week! When I wasn’t drowning in self-pity I thought about what I want this Christmas to be. Honestly, Merry and Bright just sort of rang hollow and, while I love Bing’s White Christmas – it just is not what I needed to focus on.

But, then last night… out of the blue Steve sent me a link…

As usual, he has the perfect reminder for me… he does make it feel like Christmas, and so that is going to be my focus for the season. The blues might not be entirely gone, but I can see my silver lining shining through…and that is a very good thing indeed.

That is all I have for this week. Have a wonderful weekend and I will see you all back here on Monday!
