A Thank You Note

Dearest Santa Claus,

I wanted to send you this little thank you note for the lovely gifts you left in my stocking this Christmas.

I can see that you got my letter because of the lovely, fibery goodness that I found hanging over the fireplace yesterday morning.

Rowan Creative Focus Worsted with it’s 75%/25% wool/alpaca blend in such a luscious purple caught my eye at once.

Followed by another in teal…. swoon.

I must say, Santa Darling, that your color selection is impeccable. The glorious reds of the Chocolate Cherries colorway are to die for. And to choose a hand dyed DK weight yarn shows that you really do know me pretty well. I have never knit any Baah! Sonoma, and I am so excited to cast this on my needles.

All that yarn, plus the antique darning egg and mushroom? You really went the extra mile, Santa, and I must say that I am impressed.

Thank you so, so, so much.

PS – did you notice my new stocking? I finished it just in time for Christmas. 🙂

What’s in Your Stocking, Girl? (Christmas Countdown Day 21)

1 tin cup with cocoa and candy cane
1 kids bath bomb (from Cheeky Maiden)
1 Hello Kitty lipgloss
1 can silly string

the little girls each get a doll from Nova Natural (specifically, this one for The Princess and this one for The Munchkin. The doll in the picture above is for The Dancing Queen) while the big girl gets a box of artists pencils and “The Parent Trap” DVD (the old version with Hailey Mills because it is waaaay better than the new one)

So, what’s in your stockings?
