With the last batch of Pink Pines
2009, All is calm
2008, Christmas in Gropmarka
2007, One candle
2006, Christmas Peace
2005, Gabriel and his obo (did I say different levels of misery)

2003, Juniper berry bush (from a Norwegian Christmas carol)
Now that I’ve shown you mine, I would like to see yours. If you have made Christmas cards (any kind of Christmas card, not just fabric ones) this year (or any other year for that matter), add your link to Mr Linky so we all can have a look. Have fun.-)

With the first member of our newest generation of (alien) toilet-paper-roll-santas I wish you and your loved ones a merry Christmas. I’ll be taking a break from blogging for a few days so I’ll see you when I’m tired of being peaceful and jolly, which might happen sooner than you’d think.

The good thing about this gigantic amount of hats and only one non-gigantic head to put them on is that I get to share them with others, including you guys.
These 6 hand knitted hats made from chunky lovely (not machine washable) wool yarn are up for grabs. The style is very similar to the hat from Giveaway Day (you give it a little pat in the back of your neck so it droops a little back there; would that be beanie hat??), and the rib knitting makes them fit an adult or teen.
These colours are pretty accurate: off white, hot pink, warm yellow and off white w/yellow stripe. Now, you get to choose up to 3 hats, one for yourself and two for your friends and family, just tell me which hats you’d want and I’ll see what I can do. I will draw 2 winners on January 7th (when we have all managed to fight our way off the couch and back to our computers).
1) Leave a comment to this post. Make sure your blogger profile includes your email address or leave one here so I can get hold of you if you are the lucky winner
2) If you are one of my wonderful followers, or become one, leave a comment telling me so and you’ll get another chance in the drawing.
Good luck to you all; I’m off to building my non allergenic spider free Christmas tree for grandson and I to decorate tomorrow morning. No matter if it takes 3 minutes or 2 hours it will be anything but boring...

I was planning to make more of them for Christmas presents, but that did not happen. Nope. Maybe I’ll revisit next year, which is a thought I often have but rarely follow up on – too many ideas and not enough time or energy (I cannot really blame it on fabric shortage, can I). I did not get around to making the thrifty pillows from this post or finish Village No 2 either, but as far as I understand, time will still exist on the other side of Christmas Eve and while I’m waiting, I’ll be knitting hats. Probably.

and knitted 2 more hats for my upcoming A Hat A Day Giveaway which leaves only one more hat to knit.

The winners are
C+C, the soon to get married couple who won the little house quilt and
Claire, the pinkish hat lover who won the hat.
Congratulations to both of you and to the rest of you thank you for playing along!
I’m still knitting hats by the mile, so do pop by again in a couple of days or so because quite a few of them will want to fulfil their destinies and keep someone’s heads warm during the winter and one of these heads might as well be yours. Giveaways are so much fun!
“Darling Dorrit” is one of the Funky Fowl from this post. It has been lovely visiting with an old friend and finish one more of the pledged ufos for Finn's challenge. She looks kind of comfy on my couch, doesn’t she?
I’ll be back tonight for the drawing of Giveaway Day. It’s also Friday Night Sew In and I have plans. It’s always good to have a plan.

The first batch of 10 was finished yesterday, just in time for the guild Christmas party, so only 27 left to go. Right. I’d better start working.
Have a wonderful Thursday!
