KAS-KRISTMAS IS HERE!
You are invited to our “Christmas Party” right here on the Forum.
It’s a time to gather, share thoughts with our KASfriends, and have some fun.
We hope some of you who like rhyming might pen a poem (or feel free to add one you have read and loved).
Share your favourite Christmas joke or cartoon,
your favourite family tradition,
a photo of your Christmas tree or your pet in holiday garb,
your Christmas wish,
your secret for surviving this very busy season,
… anything that tickles your fancy, to get us all in the holiday mood.
put on your thinking cap (Christmassy of course!)
and join in our celebration of KAS, one another, and this joyous season.
Ooooh, Chris, these are gorgeous! I'll bet Bev would love to get her hands on some of that pink variegated aran :)) Even I must admit it is very pretty!
I can't wait to see what wonders will be created with these treasures ... xo
Ooh yes, my fingers are itching to reach through the screen...if only they could. :((
Your son and friend have excellent taste in yarn, Chris....pretty, pretty, pretty!!!
Your brother missed his vocation....he could have been a yarn-rescuer, Chris....lol. What a great find. :))
Wendy, what a beautiful gift of yarn! The colors are gorgeous!!! And the yarn looks soft and warm ... perfect for handwarmers :) ... xo
Pretty colours, Wendy. I use Portacraft in some of my squares. I haven't used either of these colours...I look forward to seeing what you make. :))
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
I've been absent from the discussion for a few days. We had our big Christmas on the 28th and then things didn't exactly settle down. My son-in-law had a gall bladder flare-up on the 29th. First a trip to Uxbridge Cottage Hospital where an ultra sound showed gall stones, back home for a few hours, then he spiked a fever and had to go to Markham Stouffville where they admitted him. GB removed yesterday, and he'll be home later today or tomorrow. Everything is fine, but our routine is kind of upside down!
I found two glorious balls of yarn in my sock. I've never seen this one in Uxbridge before - Premium Toy Box. I can hardly wait to get to Walmart to see what other colours they have. It's lovely and soft, bulky weight, but not too bulky.
I whipped up two squares so the 'givers' could see what it looks like'
Anne, I've been thinking about you and your 28th celebration. So sorry to hear about your S-I-L but very glad things turned out okay :)
I love your yarn. What gorgeous colors!!! I, too, will be checking the yarn shelves in Walmart ... not that I need any more yarn, but ... well ... you know ... LOL ... xo
Lovely Yarn Anne, hope your son in law is home soon and on the mend. Had gallstones myself a few years ago, was glad to be rid of them!
There's nothing like new yarn!!!! These look lovely, Anne. :))
What an eventful time you all had. I'm glad everything turned out ok. xo
This discussion has been such fun and has put the sparkle back into the forum. I hate to see the fun end just because Christmas is over.
Why don't we try to keep the buzz going by switching to Bev's discussion "Funny and Fantastic" here
It's a great 'meeting place' where we can chat about anything under the sun (or snow). It has kind of languished since last November.
See you all in the F&F discussion!
Great idea, Anne! Let's do :))) xo
