A Log Cabin Christmas

I love the Christmas holiday. I put my decorations up early, usually the week of Thanksgiving. I love bringing out the decorations from year to year thinking of holidays past. Pictured is a little bit of our holiday in the log cabin. I hope you enjoy yours as much as we enjoy ours

Our handknit from our alpaca and sheep stockings, hung by the chimney with care, with hopes that St Nick will soon be here

My felted manger, the bodies are sheep wool, needle felted and the clothing is 100% wool

Just in time for the holiday I will be offering a pair of Alpaca slipper socks to keep your feet toasty warm.These are from the aplaca fiber sent to a mill in New England and made there, 100% made and grown in the USA!

I hope to maybe learn of a movie I have not seen. Just e-mail the name of the movie at or leave the name of the movie in the comment section of this blog. I'll put your name in a hat and have my grandson pull one out the week before Christmas, drop them in the mail and you'll have them to wear on Christmas morning!! We also have these available in the shop. These are a favorite of mine to wear all day long or at night to keep my feet warm as toast, they are soft and cushy inside and feel wonderful on your feet. So stop on by pick up a pair for yourself or they make wonderful grab bag or stocking stuffer! As always I can drop them in the mail, just drop me a note.They really are wonderful little feet warmers.

New creations!

ALL CAPLETS have sold! I'm working on a wonderful pink one now, which will be here on the blog when finished.

I have enjoyed knitting a number of these this season, The little caplet. Its just enough to take the chill away. I little something that can be worn under your coat in place of a scarf. Worn while out to dinner to take the chill away. Its the perfect size, not to much, just enough. Knitted with hand dyed yarn and a hand made button these little caplets do the job! I have a wonderful pink on the needles now that I will add a big square button. to when finished. The gorgeous turquoise is in the shot, for sale, the olive green is mine to keep! And the purple is a gift. If you find a yarn here and would like to knit this I can share this pattern with you.
Shop will be open each weekend for a few hours so you can stock up on yarn for your winter knitting projects or stop on by for a special hand made gift for someone. As always I will open most anytime by appointment, just give a ring. 1-203-736-2630.
Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas, don't you think?
