Annual Airing of Grievances for Festivus! Since no one ever likes to go first in these things, I will start:
To my mother who decided to tell my Grandmother she is putting her in a nursing home. Right. Before. Christmas. What is wrong with you? I can't comment further on this, because quite frankly I am infuriated. You couldn't wait a couple of weeks to do this?
To the person who brought the nut encrusted cookies of death into our home last year. Do it this year, and it will be the last time you are invited over. I really want to print out a copy of this article to give to you, but my sweet husband has asked me not to.
Share your Festivus grievance in the comments section by Thursday December 26 and be entered to win my new Intersect Mystery KAL pattern!
I will be talking more about the pattern the next couple of weeks here on my blog and in the Indieway Yarns group on Ravelry. There will be a thread for the KAL in the Indieway group (it should be up today or tomorrow). The KAL will consist of two patterns and six clues. The first clue will be released on January 17th with a new clue coming out each Friday after that. So, are you wondering what the patterns will be? A very cute hat and matching mitts! The samples that I did continually get compliments every time I wear them. The test knitters have all been sending me pictures of the ones they have made and it's so much fun to see what they look like in other colors. For the KAL you will need two skeins of Indieway's Best Worsted. It's a really enjoyable yarn to knit with. It has a great hand, shows stitch definition well, and best of all it wears well. It's soft and warm, and I've worn the heck out of the mitt's and there are no signs of pilling. I hope you can join us for the KAL, the Indiway Group has a lot of great gal's in it and the KAL is going to be a lot fun!
PS The pattern will be available for purchase on Ravelry beginning December 27.
