Flight Knits Carry-On WIP #2

Hello & Welcome to myย 56th episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is my knitterly version of Clement Clarke Moore’s “Twas the night before Christmas” poemโ€”inspired byย my sack of incomplete Christmas decorations, as I race to finish in time for the 25th! ๐Ÿ™‚

‘Twas the weekend before Christmas,
when all through the house…
Not a project was finished,
not even a gift knit for my spouse!

The incomplete stitches were
layed by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas’
elf-help team soon would be there…

My needles were nestled
all snug in their yarn webs,
While visions of sweet FO’s
danced in my head.

And hubby in his sports jersey,
and I with my knitting lap,
Had just settled in for a long evening
of Hockey Night in Canada on tap.

Then away with my pics to the
web’s window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the iPad and threw
open the photo editing app,

And sprang to my blog,
to WordPress gave a whistle,
And away the pics flew
like the down of a thistle.

And I whistled, and shouted,
and called them by name…

Now Dasher! now Dancer!
now Prancer and Vixen!
On Comet! On Cupid!
on Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the blog!
there’s no time to crawl!
Now dash away!
Dash away! Dash away all!

Visions of Christmas Past- Redux via TheLifeProject

Christmas gift with heart & yarn embellishment

December is here and Christmas is near… hallelujah! โ€จSo let’s crank the Christmas carols and get this festive month started, shall we?

Today’s reblog was inspired by Don @ The Life Projectโ€”just one of the many, many WordPress blogs I love yet never read enough of :-/ Don’s thought provoking blog posts normally focus on insightful Bible study. In today’s post, he decks the Victorian era halls with a glimpse back to when life seemed simpler, people connected without the internet and everyday heirloom gifts/decor were mostly handmade ๐Ÿ™‚ Totally my kind of fun! Add to that a charming on-screen vision of Christmas past via G.A. Smith’s “Santa Clause” (1898) silent film and (although my yarny hands are holding knitting needles) you could even say I’m hooked! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Wishing a happy December to all,
and to all a heartily wholesome night! โค Jackie

The Life Project

The Christmas season is upon us, and even I canโ€™t put it off any longer! I thought that it might be fun to take a look at it from two different points of view, looking back and looking forward. ย Today, letโ€™s look backโ€ฆ

For me, the notion of Christmas in the Victorian era is a great one; it somehow seems so innocent and wholesome. ย I donโ€™t know why this is, maybe Iโ€™m just a sucker for that period, but somehow things just seem more simple. ย My honest guess is that this would amuse the people who lived then, but what the heck, letโ€™s deck the halls!

Of course you would have to start out with your Christmas cards, this was the era that invented them, and since internet connections werenโ€™t that great in those days, everyone would actually writeย them and send them in the mail!

OK, try to picture this:โ€ฆ

Hello & Welcome to myย 55th episode of the KWH iPad Show! Todayโ€™s feature is our recent snowfall ๐Ÿ™‚

Ooooh… the snowy night & day scene outside our front door looks divine! Fresh flakes are just snooow pretty, aren’t they? And especially the first snowfall of fresh flakes! That’s why my trusty iPad & I always try to pixelate ’em asap upon arrival ๐Ÿ™‚

These photos are actually our second snowfall of the season! The first was early October, way back when the trees still had all their green leaves!!! Much earlier than I’d have liked, albeit quite a pretty sight! I’m still in the process of processing all those photos. Posting these first will knock my flakes out of blogful order, but that’s snOw’kay ๐Ÿ˜‰

Now nearing the end of November with a month ’til Christmas, it’s great to have snow! Snow helps get ya into the Christmas spirit and helps get my nimble Christmas knitting fingers into gear! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope it’s snowing well wherever you are! ๐Ÿ˜‰
