Ho, Ho, Ho!



Over here at the Stash Basket, as we are all recovering from the inevitable pre-Christmas dose of the dreaded sickness bug, we would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

It has been a special year for many of my friends who now have bigger families than this time last year (hello Evie, Sammy, Trinity, Isabel and of course our very own new baby Bartholomew Archibald Bunny).

Here we have made squares, blankets, scarves, gloves, jumpers and cardigans. We have failed in our attempts to get Tipsy finished in time to wear on Christmas Day. OK, enough of the Royal 'WE'. I have failed. Miserably. There is loads left to do, but maybe sometime in the New Year you might see a finished picture. Oh ever the optimist...

So whatever you are doing this Christmas and New Year, whatever your beliefs, wherever you are, may your festive season hold nothing but happiness and fun. Let your New Year sparkle with excitement and let it be a very happy and healthy one for us all.

Thank-you for sticking with me and for joining me if you're new-comers. See you again in 2008 - if not before...

Merry Christmas to you all....and A Happy Knitting New Year....and best of luck keeping the Tipsy going...looking forward to seeing her full and finished glory (no pressure, mind, wouldn't want to be accused of anything like that, it's about enjoyment, and creation...ok?) Fran x

We had it over here - lots of rest and liquids is all I can say.
Merry Christmas to you - and don't stress if something isn't finished. You did that lovely blankie too.

All the best to you and yours this Christmas. What a lovely post. Hope you get over the bug soon. It is down here in Somerset too!! Never mind about Tipsy, you did the almost impossible with the blanket. Do you need any more squares? I am one of the new ones and really enjoy this. I have found much renewed creative inspiration from you and your blogger friends. Thank you. Merry.xx
