I've been working on a little secret with Jimmy Beans Wool, a handful of other designers, yarn, and knitting supply company's for the holiday season... I'm awfully excited for you to see my part in it and to see what others have done! On Friday Nov 16th, head on over to the Jimmy Beans Wool blog, and you'll get to hear all about their latest project, Operation Turkey Trot!
For me the holiday season is all about MAKING, whipping up food, crafting gifts, and throwing together celebrations. We are already in my favorite part of the process when we start planning what to eat, gathering supplies for gifting, and scheduling time with family and friends. I've developed a litany of treats that don't get made the rest of the year and I for one can't wait to sample them as we start to stockpile the goodies! There will be Rosemary Nuts, Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels, Chocolate Bark, Meringues, Tamari Pecans, Molasses Crinkles... I.CAN'T.WAIT!
On the crafting front, we think about all the people on our list friends, family, teachers, colleagues, and I try to see how many of them I can whip up some of these for! If the giftee is a knitter, then I lovingly wrap up a kit and they can make it themselves while they munch on some homemade treats from us. Having a knit jewelry kit business comes in really handy at this time of year..... just sayin'.
I've some other hand made gift ideas as well, but since I know some people read my blog that I'll be gifting I can't share them here just yet!
Also, the Adorn Anew Blog Tour is still going strong... Ann Hanson, over at Knitspot, just shared a post with her readers. So, grab a cup of tea and head on over. Keep scrolling through her posts, she just is heading back from a trip to California and her travel post was SO fun to read! Ann just opened spots her in next Bare Naked Club, which sounds like a wonderful knitting adventure!
So, what do you have planned for the holiday season? I'm open to more ideas : )!
