Oh, it’s “A Holly Jolly Christmas!”,
the second in this year’s Christmas series, another Eyelet Ripple.
My yarn choices this time were: two reds – Red Heart Super Saver Cherry Red and Lion Brand FUN Red, two Kelly Greens – one from Zayre and one from Jack Frost, an unknown white yarn, and the same variegated as in #52, WonderArt’s “Christmas”.
Over the weekend I finished the last of this year’s four Christmas ripples. I was so happy! I could deliver them to the charity’s drop-box on Monday, two whole days early! YAY!
But then I got an email saying the next blanket pick-up isn’t until the 17th!! For a second I felt disappointed, thinking about how hard I’d pushed to finish ‘on time’, but suddenly I realized it’s all good cuz I get to spend this spare time with Spiderman. lol
Hey! – No peeking! I’ll show you my other two Christmas beauties over the next two Mondays.
This is my favourite, I just adore these colours, and you combine all so wonderfully.
And for Spiderman and that family your husband’s co-workers adopt for Christmas, it is SO nice.
Thank you, thank you! Glad you like ‘Holly Jolly’.
I’m happy to hear that most people in DH’s department are getting involved. He says the pile of gifts is growing quickly! 🙂
Perfect!! I can almost hear bells!!
That’s funny. . . I almost called it ‘Jingle Jangle’! lol.
Congrats to your husband and his coworkers. What a beautiful example of the Spirit of Christmas! This family has no idea that people are preparing a wonderful Christmas for them! How excited they will be! 😀
The community-wide program’s called Adopt-A-Family and mom filled out the forms, (she only asked for gas cards for herself) so she knows something’s coming, but I hope it’s all going to be a Big surprise for the children!!
Gas cards alone will not do as a Christmas gift! I fixed her a little basket of personal care products: lotion, shampoo, bath gel, lip balm, etc. 🙂
