Happy Advent Season! Time for Count Down Calendars!

Advent Calenders to Celebrate the Season

Advent Season is here! And my eagerly waited morning ritual of visiting each of my Advent Calendars - peaking behind windows, hanging ornaments and watching the number of days left to Christmas get fewer and fewer - has begun!

The first countdown calendar in the ritual visits this year - my Alan Dart knitted Christmas Tree! And of course that lovely little "gingerbread snowflake" is the first to be hung!

The Snowflakecal, hosted by IMake, is drawing to a close and Martine has requested that during November we share how we plan to use all the snowflakes we have crocheted the past 11 months using patterns found in 100 Snowflakes to Crochet by Caitlin Sainio..

Scandinavian Christmas You Might Have Missed!

Scandinavian themed Luminaries

So sorry for the disappearance. But it looks like I may be back for the remainder of the holiday season. At least I hope so!!!

Since most of us are waaaaaay too busy during December to keep up with our blog reading, tutorials I have shared in the Scandinavian Christmas series December 13th to December 24th on the Pickled herring blog are often missed. I thought I would share them here and now - right when we are all still eagerly seeking out Christmas inspiration!
