Primstav: About the Symbols - First Half of Winter Side

Primstav Winter Side

October 21: The date our leaves begin to turn in Portland, and are at their peak in the mountains. I marked the day with an aspen tree even though on this side of the mountains, they are rare - too wet.

October 28: St. Simon's Day and the day the sleighs are removed from the sheds to make room for livestock in winter. The day is marked with a sleigh.

Thank you to all who have been so patient in waiting for me to complete this project.  I have no excuse except that I have become addicted to knitting. lol

Holy Toes and Soles

sock holes

Why is this happening?? I NEED INPUT PLEASE!!

These are hand knit socks made using pattern suggestions for needle size and yarn. Are hand knit socks known to have a short lifespan? Is that why people knit drawers full - so they don't wear them often? Are they meant to be worn for everyday or only for special occasions or when mostly sitting?

Or is there stuff I don't know yet? Mistakes I am making?

How to make Temari Holiday Trees

Temari Holiday Trees

Happy Holiday Making everyone! A very special post for you today, a project that Diane (Craftypod) and I began several years ago. She basically gave me permission to share it about three years ago, but my life has been pretty much upside down in that time. Finally, I am sharing, and just in time for you to make one for your own holidays.
