Countdown to Christmas…


We’re at 29 days until Christmas!

Knitting HQ is starting to look like Christmas… The Christmas decorations were unpacked last night while Mr. Elf looked on.

I finished my handmade gift for the Knitmas swap that several the Twitter knitters are partaking in this yuletide season.

I have a few more leaves completed for the Christmas knit a long. I will show them off today at the City Centre SnB.

Cast away…


Cast on today for our Christmas knitalong!

I am knitting the greenery with four strands of yarn held together since
I want to make my wreath a little bit bigger and at the same time, using up what’s in my stash : )

Need help or ideas with the KAL? Post a comment or send me a tweet @TheDKC.

Join our Christmas Knit a Long

I thought I would throw in a little fun by adding a Christmas themed knit along. Enjoy the anticipation and build up to Christmas. There is the preparation, and it should be fun and stress free : ) 
I have selected one of my favourite wreath patterns by CocoKnits for a Christmas KAL. I have a prize (TBA) for this competition which will be a random draw. 
For the Knit Along: 

* Cast on will be Friday 25th November 
* To enter the random draw, post a photo of your finished wreath by Thursday 15th December in the Christmas KAL discussion thread on Ravelry
* Be creative and have fun!

Anyone want to knit along?
