A long awaited trip to Churchmouse Yarns & Teas. A day with my husband spent out and about enjoying each other's company. Christmas gifts received were carefully plotted, planned and well spent (thank you Trudy and Nanna). More BT Shelter for hats, bright happy yarn for socks and enough yarn for our just kicked off New Year's Knitalong. I'll get better yarn photos tomorrow in better light because, no, my Spire will not be golden and peach like you see above in the middle...not even close! There's still time to join if you're tempted (and if you are following along and want to post (Mara!) ~ don't forget to pm me on Ravelry so I can tell you what I need from you so you can play along :)
I love how excited everyone seems to be who has taken time to post...and I know by Kelli's silence she is almost finished (only half kidding!).
Thanks everyone for all the wonderful posts and photos and excitement ~ you make doing this every year worthwhile and something to look forward to all year long!
I need to wind some yarn so that's all for now ~ more to come tomorrow hopefully!
Happy knitting and happy new year! Melissa
(and I did snarf the drink menu above but only because I plan on trying this at home!)
