I'm sure that many of you have heard about the nasty ice storm that hit parts of New Hampshire and Massachusetts by now. Fortunately we escaped much of the nastiness here in Northern NH, although we did get a bit of icing. Hopefully those who are still without their power, 3 days now will get it back soon!
Many years ago when Ken and I were first dating, and I was working two jobs, I was actually too busy to find a tree so I left the task to him. I guess I didn't stress to him what kind of tree we usually had, as what he came home with could only be described as a "Charlie Brown" tree....LOL.
I didn't say much as I didn't want to hurt his feelings, but the kids........oh my...haha! We still joke about that first tree.
Imagine my surprise when we went to our usual Christmas tree spot to see that they actually had a section dedicated to "Charlie Brown" trees. I can not begin to tell you just how tempted I was to purchase one of those sweet trees, but Hannah would not stand for it... :)
Once home again, we set up the tree, put out all of the decorations and I finally opened up a box that came earlier in the week. (It's been insanely busy here)
I sat down and sighed...........this felted tweed is incredibly beeutiful yarn! Back in October when I went to Rhinebeck and saw all of the beautiful Tangled Yoke sweaters made with Rowan Felted Tweed, I knew I had to make this sweater. Over the last few months, I resisted purchasing this yarn, but when Webs had a free shipping sale on top of the 20% off I gave in to the temptation.
I have a few items to finish up for Christmas and then it will be sweater knitting time. I am seeing a sweater kind of winter here. :)
