I always think that it's OK to leave your Christmas lights up and some decorations a little into Epiphany. This year, since we had our first fake tree ever; I've decided to leave almost everything up it seems. My kids wouldn't let me turn the lights on outside last night, but the Christmas lights on the tree are still acceptable according to them!
So, before, I put all of my Christmas decorations away for another year, I thought I'd show off a couple of my knitting-related ones. I love when commercial items show a little respect for real knitting, including showing actual stitches so you can see them readily. I bought these two little sweater ornaments years ago before polymer clay was kind of popular to use with crafts. I'm thinking this year maybe I could make some myself.
I just ordered the little s'mores guy this week. I saw a little knitting s'more man on another blog and was envious, so to aleviate my envi-osity I thought I'd order myself one. They were sold out at Amazon, so I decided to order the little mitten one. I may not put him away for quite a while.
Russ is coming home tonight. I am very glad because the kitchen faucet is leaking and our fence blew down in our "gale-forced" winds we had last night....oh and I did miss him too. His dad seems to be making a remarkable recovery. I really thought he'd be staying for a funeral. I'm still so glad that Russ went back there. It sounds like it was stressful much of the time, but also good for him to see all of his family, and to show his dad how much he cares.
