At The End of the Tunnel

The best thing about being a toymaker is the North Pole contract work.

three cashmere bears

I can’t show you any of that – I had to sign a complicated NDA.

Those three bears are made with yarn from my new Cashmere Lady out in Washington. She had all of the kid fleece from this year spun into an absolutely fabulous yarn just for me. If it were any softer, I wouldn’t be able to feel it. I am absolutely thrilled to have found Ravenwood Cashmere and I can’t wait to see what shades 2012 brings! Ravenwood bears will start appearing in the shop this week.

My Christmas List is looking much less scary.

down to two

Just two more toys (the red post-its are orders for January).

On the other hand, Ellie’s To Do List is still rawther full.

so much to do!

So many things to do before Christmas!

Her list grows every day since she likes post-it notes as much as I do.

    As soon as New Year day is here, I am gathering up my much neglected Yarn Miracle patterns as they are very lonely and awaiting their needles, yarn color and the ever important name! Merry Christmas, Emily, to you and your family! Have a very Happy, healthy New Year and…..happy knitting!
