Knitting for the Soul

Merry Christmas!

I can't believe Christmas has come and gone already. Where did this year go? So much has happened, some good... some not so good... But all in all, there's so much to be thankful for again this year.

I spent so uch of this year knitting for others through Soulful Knitting Ministries and The Think Pink Challenge that I haven't had much time or energy left to knit for moi. However, it's time to change that. I "tithed" on my knitting time this holiday by knitting scarves for a wonderful Bible College student to give as gifts since I knew she didn't have much money to spend on presents, I made a lot of progress in my quest to get nearly 600 pink scarves delivered to breast cancer treatment facilities around the country for the Think Pink project, and I even found time to knit a very cool v-neck tee and started a WIP that's been in my closet for over a year now. Not a bad way to get a running start on the new year!

I decided against a Christmas tree again this year. I've decided they're just too much trouble, and with no children in the house (and no grinch to drag the tree in and out), I realized that I was perfectly fine without the tree. But I decided that I wanted to do something special, so thanks to my friend Janeen, I was inspired to give Christmas an entirely different look at my place this year.

The picture doesn't do it justice, and Janeen's is much prettier, but I think it turned out well. I found a beautiful shallow bowl at Pier One and then filled it with gold, copper and brown Christmas ornaments, pine cones and a few Christmas flowers, also in the gold/copper colorway. I even added gold and copper glitter glue to the pine cones to give them some pizzazz.
I'm enjoying my "Christmas bowl" and the knowledge that taking down decorations will be a breeze this year!

Happy Holidays!
