Naked trees

Posted on November 01 2013

[caption id="attachment_914" align="aligncenter" width="490" caption="Pre decorations and ornaments..."][/caption] This is our naked tree. So much fun hunting it down. It put up a good fight... We were victorious! My strong, ruggedly handsome, husband bzzzzz-ed it down, with his chain saw, and drug it up a mountain side.... Ahhh, my Hero! It's perfect really. Decorations...  My parents have helped us collect 'Chistopher Radco' ornaments for years. There are  fabulous - and there are enough to decorate a large tree. But ... Waylon is 16 months and loves him a good sparkly object ;D So we are forgoing putting up the priceless heirlooms. I was  thinking either Faux cranberries with popcorn, on a string, or a bunch of pom pom's and knitted ornaments... Guess what I have decided on?!   Christmas knitting is the best kind. What kid doesn't love an itchy  fair isle sweater from a crazy aunt ;D This will be our first year with  homemade knitted  stockings. Leon's is done. He loves it. Malabrigo in red and white. I did some random striping and tossed it in the washer for a mild felt job... Oops, I forgot about the 'mild' part and it's pretty darn felted. ha ha ha. Looks great and can hardly wait to finish Waylon's and mine. ... In the mean time... He he I am knitting heaven. Ahhhhh. A cowl with 2 colors of the Jade Sapphire cashmere. it's amazing. One skein white and one lime green, seed stitch, # 9 needles... It's soft and pretty and mmmm. Tonight is our tree decorating night. Yay!! I'll post some pix of our pretty Pom Pom tree tomorrow. Happy Knitting! Peace, Ash
