Christmas Gifts

I had a great Christmas, and, from what I’ve been reading in blogland, so did many others. Our time on Christmas Eve with our family and friends was laid-back and fun. We had great food and lots of laughs and champagne punch. Christmas morning was spent opening gifts with the kids and I am a lucky knitter, indeed. Unlike some others who didn’t receive any knitted related gifts, I scored. Dale got me a spinning stool and a WooLee Winder plus 3 knitting/spinning books. And, while I didn’t get any yarn, I did get a gift certificate to kpixie from my dear friend, Wendy.

Christmas afternoon we went to my brother-in-law’s house for dinner. We had a delicious meal of roast pork and scalloped potatoes and other goodies. We played Catch Phrase and had a Yankee Swap. But, the highlight of the day for me was this:
Yup, Jen and Barry had gifted her niece with a learn to knit kit and I got the privilege of teaching 10-year-old Emily how to knit. It was such fun! She took to it very quickly and spent the rest of the day carrying the knitting around with her and telling everyone how much fun knitting is! Woo and also hoo.

Another knitter is born. Now that’s a Christmas gift!

Edited to add: Emily is actually 7, not 10. An even younger knitter than I thought!

  1. Carole! So cute (of course, I am biased being Emily’s mom!)…just wanted to amaze and dazzle you all….Emily is 7 years old (her older sister is 10!)…so I was even more impressed that she picked right up on this.

    Thanks again, Carole.

  2. It was fun knitting with you! I had a good time! I can’t wait until I can make a purse. You are nice to teach kids how to knit.Thank you.Bye.

    Love, Emily

  3. Woo hoo indeed! Marvelous that you got to seduce, er, inveigle, er, introduce another impressionable young one into Our Way Of Life.

    I received 2 knitting-related gifts: an elann gift certificate, and the fact that everyone loved my knitted gifts and they all fit! Now I just have to finish the hat for my sister’s BF… although his face on taking a still-pristine ball of yarn out of the gift bag was just about worth the not-done-despite-best-intentions guilt.

  4. Aw how cute. I wish I could get my 7 year old to be interested in knitting. She just wants the finished product, without actually having to do it.
    You are lucky to get the Wooley Winder! Sounds like you had a fabulous Christmas.

  5. What a darling photo! I got a bunch of knitting gear for the holidays too, though I don’t have the benefit of someone like you to teach me how to do it. 🙂
