Yarn Along & A Christmas Message

I'm keeping it short today, but wanted to pop in with a quick update.  (I'm joining in on Ginny's Yarn Along over at Small Things.)

Here's just one of the Christmas gifts I'm knitting:

This is all you get to see until after Christmas (sorry), since I don't want to give it away.  If you like cables (who doesn't?) and you like warm things that go on your feet (ditto), come back in 2012 for the pattern.  : )

I haven't been in this space in a week, but I'm rather enjoying my time away from the computer, both for work and for personal things, and I'm especially enjoying being in the moment with my family as Christmas approaches.

Since I won't be back here before Christmas -- or maybe even before the end of 2011 -- I want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.

In case you missed it, consider joining in on my 2012 stash busting challenge starting on January 1.  My goal is to finish all of my WIPs and knit from my stash for as long as I can in 2012, and I'm encouraging you to join me!  (This goes for any other kind of crafting, too.)  If you have a stash, let's use it up in 2012 as a show of resourcefulness, innovation, creativity and thrift.  I'll come back with more information, a graphic to post on your blog and maybe even a linky list for those who want to join in.  For more details until then, please read this post.

Happy knitting and crafting, my friends!

P.S. The photos were taken with Instagram for iPhone.  Anyone else using Instagram?  My username is kellypatla -- if you care to follow me, I'll follow you back!  I love seeing other peoples' photos.
