I've said it here before and I'm sure I'll say it again: I love Christmas. I love it all (well, except for shopping -- I'm not a shopper, and I'm proud to say I do very little of it, even at Christmas) -- I love the lights, and the music, and the peace and camaraderie, I love knitting gifts for everyone, the food and the festivities.
But I normally only love it after Dec. 1st. Any Christmas stuff that makes its way into my world before that is generally not welcome -- it feels too commercial, too much, too, too... well, you know.
So today when I was driving home from Ganges, you'd have thought I would have a negative reaction when I saw this....
I had coffee with Gillian, my FictionKnitsta author today, and she looked at and tried on several of my shawls. We've decided that I'll knit her an apple red shawl in the Faroese tradition - she'd like it to be fairly plain but with a beaded edging, and a 'house' on the back. I can do that... here's a couple of choices!
