Amazing Threads Holiday Knitting, New KALs, Staff Projects TOO!

Hope you all enjoyed a Spooktacular Halloween

Spent the weekend with my daughter and family out east celebrating Avery's 2nd birthday and Monday when we left I said we would see them at Christmas...where does the time go AND HOW CAN WE BE LOOKING AT HOLIDAY SCHEDULING SO SOON! See pics below!

Mother Nature is cooling us off and letting us know what we can expect as fall rolls into winter..and then the holidays are upon us..

Just a reminder that you may need to jump start your holiday knitting, here are some facts!

8 weeks til Christmas...

   55 sleeps for the tiny ones in your lives...

ONLY 43 Days until Hannukah  

I think our warm fall lulled a few of us into thinking we had more time...
