There are so many cliche things to say about the holidays & how quickly they come up--how busy we are & how much knitting there is left to do before Christmas--& it turns out, most of those cliches are true. I just can't believe it's December 11th. Where does the time go?
We have been busy at LYS! We have a fun & very active page on Facebook. Check out our link along the sidebar. I've been posting a weekly event reminding folks about our Thursday knitting group. This week was a real highlight for our knitters. We buckled down & completely ignored our personal holiday knitting. For nearly 2 1/2 hours, we pretended we had all the time in the world to complete those pesky socks, hats, sweaters & scarves we've been working on and instead we broke out some BIG needles & some crazy stash yarn. We are working on an...installation...of some...knitted graffiti. Have you seen or heard of knittaplease? http://www.knittaplease.com/ will link you to a blog about this international knitting sensation. We're excited to 'wrap up' our project & get some photographs in for consideration for a book scheduled to come out Fall 2010.
Next week, December 17th, we'll celebrate the holidays with another evening of indifferent knitting! Please join us for a potluck supper between 5 & 8 pm at LYS. Word on the street is that Eric is bringing clam chowder! RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get a handle on how many to expect--we'd love to make you welcome! Bring your knitting!
Kitchen Kettle Village http://www.kitchenkettle.com/ is all decked out for the holidays! December is a great time to visit . Every Friday between Thanksgiving & Christmas the whole village is open until 9:00 PM. Special events including carolling, s'mores making, & complimentary hot chocolate. Dinner with Mrs. Clause at the Kling House rounds out the fun. Saturdays feature regular hours and lots of holiday fun--this week there will be music, hot apple cider samples & cookie baking in the bakery.
There really is still time to get some projects ready in time for the holidays--well, since Hanukkah starts tomorrow, you'd better find some small projects for that! But we've got two weeks til Christmas, so if you need help with ideas, yarn or inspiration, stop in any time. We're happy to help! Holiday hours are posted on the website & January/February classes will be added soon! www.lancasteryarnshop.com
All the best to you and yours this chilly December!
