OK! No more whining. Let's get on with the show
I think I've mentioned Thea and I are planning a "3 Things You Can Knit Before Christmas" class. We did one last year and had a ball. I think all the participants had a ball, too. I had been struggling with what I wanted to do. Nothing floated my boat. Everything I thought about was boring. My parameters were: 1) Takes less than 2 weeks to make; 2) Takes only one skein of yarn; 3) Is very unusual and cute; and 4) When I'm finished I'll hold it at arms length, take a good look and say, "Ahhh!" I was looking for something that made me smile, something I couldn't wait to start. I started searching Pinterest but no luck. The more I looked and found nothing, the sadder I became. That may have contributed to my inability to write last week. I was just too preoccupied with discovering that perfect pattern that I was totally distracted.
I get A LOT OF emails from online yarn shops. I've shared how they greatly contribute to my yarn stash. One day I went to my email and there was a newsletter from Morehouse Farm. Morehouse Farm is located in the Hudson River Valley and known for there yummy Merino wool. Knitting with it is like petting a kitten. I always loved the company and would love to take a field trip one day to New York State to visit the sheep, the yarn and Erin, the wonderful person who helped me with my problem. I found a kit that lit me up like a Christmas Tree. As soon as I saw it I knew it was what I wanted to make for "3 Things You Can Knit Before Christmas." And here it is. . .
Believe it or not, in the next couple of days I received another newsletter from Morehouse Farm. Right there, looking me in the eye was my second treasure for "3 Things You Can Knit Before Christmas." I struggled with "I want to do this one. No, I want to do that one. No, I want to do this one" until I decided, "What the heck, I'll do both!" Here it is!!!!!!
If you want to see adorable knitting patterns you won't find any place else, visit Morehouse Farm and take a peak. Their critter patterns all make you say, "Ahhh!" I love to point readers in the direction of special sellers whether LYS or online. It is my pleasure to point you toward Morehouse Farm and Erin.
