Wool you look at that

The tree was decorated by the shortest person in the house. There are no balls above where I can reach and everybody’s quite fine with that.

A blue Malabrigo hat went where it was supposed to go, the giftee thrilled at the handknit; a good wool couldn’t ask for better.

Another gift got finished today and is blocked and drying. Just in the time of Nick!

Bravo!! No tree at our house, not even the small one. Maybe Saturday, but I doubt it…

“Just in the time of Nick!”
You’ve knitted a hat for St. Nick?

yup, things getting finished “just in the time of Nick” at this “workshop” too (I’m convinced that whole deal about elves is really all of us!)

Brilliant! I think you’ve coined a new phrase- I love ‘just in the time of Nick’!

In my case, the tree is being un-decorated by the shortest (furry) people in the house, so the ornaments are above a certain height….But my husband got the toy train running around the tree last night, so they’re being distracted from defending the house from malevolent ornaments.

I love your witty mind!

We’ve known for a long time now that you are one of Santa’s little helpers – all year long! 🙂

I agree with Suzanne. And I wish Alison-the-elf a healthy, restful holiday. Well, to all of you, too! Merry holidays!

Hmmm…our tree was decorated by the shortest living here and her even shorter friend! Heh…I had no trouble placing the Celtic cross on the top branch. Yes…I’m still around…just not as visible for a while, I think. Merry Christmas to you all.
