Hello & Welcomeย to my 35thย episode of theย KWH iPad Show! I hope your year so far isย going well ๐Ÿ™‚ Our 2016 got off to a rough start ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But today is a new day… and the “show” must go on!

So can you believe it’s been 9 months since my iMac died and left the blogging to just you, me & my iPad? Yup! … 9 solid months, since I’ve stroked the blogful keys of a real computer that uses more than an app for this or that! I’d never have believed it possible to last this long without going completely bonkers. Yet, here we all are… 9 months ago, we were a crowd of 330 readers, including WordPress + 30 or so “likes” from facebook… Then wOw, look at the 600+ crowd we are now!

 

Thanks everyone โค for keeping me company,
through to the new year… and counting!

Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone!ย

Well here we are, one week past Christmas and finally posting my decorated staircase … LoL … Honestly, some people really ought to get their Christmas knitting act together and start stitching as soon as the stores start their seasonal displays!!! Ah well, it’s all fun and I’m not feeling a bit foolish for posting ’em late ๐Ÿ˜‰ Far better to be squeeking-in with this post before the stroke of New Year’s, than suffer the hang-over ofย waiting ’til next year!

Anyhoo…

This year’sย Christmas staircase theme colours include:ย red, green and white with spindles wrapped in icy blue eyelash yarn. The tree is one ball each of fleece/eyelash yarn. The large heart on the tree is red eyelash yarn…. Gotta say, I โค that eyelash yarn! These were part of my birthday yarn stash purchase from Herrschners. The candles are red crochet (wedding gift) doilies, with flames knit ofย fancy-fluffy-puffy golden yarn from a friend. The various garlands are knit from Bernat Boa, Lily Crafter’s Cotton (discontinued) and Bernat Christmas Tinsel worsted cotton… Ooooh, plus one furry strip of Baby Monkey ultra-soft yarn… Adorning tree ornaments include: 1 green wool Heartfelted Brambleโ™ฅtini Loop Ornament + 2 red/white fleece Sweetieโ™ฅKnitโ™ฅHearts + 5 green wool Hearty Links with Felted Loops + 2ย i-Cord candy canes. The tree topper ribbon isย from an embellished Ferrero Rocher gift pack. Thatย white loopy thing below the ribbon is just me playing withย plarn (plastic yarn)โ€”spun on my drop spindle.

And finally… the lovely crochet snowflakes and charmed stitch markers (also pictured separately from last year’s post) were gifted to me last Christmas from Angela aka “Wish I Were Stitching” WP blog… Thanks again, Angela โค

Then today, technically ending the year off right, we popped into our nearest Apple Store and bought a much needed flash drive… It’s charging now! And am I ever looking forward to unloading my overstuffed iPad of nearly 9 months worth of blogging photos!!!
