Jolly Old St. Nicholas.... 

... I recently got my first Lion Brand catalog and now have a full list of items that I would LOVE for Santa to bring me this year. 

1. A basket overflowing with a bounty of luxurious yarn in a rainbow of yummy colors.

2. Elves who will come and take all my yarn scraps and roll them into the most symmetrical, perfectly round balls of fiber I have ever seen. (Seriously, who else would take the time to wrap yarn so meticulously?)

4. An art studio with enough room to clearly display my scads of crafting supplies and a table with plenty of elbow room for my friends to join me. 

5. And last, but not least by far, I wish for a trip to New York City to witness for myself the grand window displays of the Lion Brand Yarn Studio where nearly every item is either knit or crocheted. What a treasure trove of inspiration!

I wonder how much cookies and milk I would have to leave out on Christmas Eve to get all of this? ;-)

All photos (save dear old Santa) were from the 
Lion Brand 2010-2011 catalog


  1. Oh, I do hope you get everything you wish for and visit us soon. The new winter window is my favorite:

  2. I want your christmas list too!!!!!
    Especially the art studio with walls covered in wool!
    have a lovely weekend!

  3. I love this post. A few of those could easily be on my with list! Thank you for your kind comment at today. I am enjoying meeting so many lovely people! Your blog is beautiful.

  4. I'm thinking that you may have to hijack a couple of semi-trucks (Borden's & Keebler would do).

    I think it's cool that someone from Lion Brand commented on your post.

  5. Well, tell John to hurry up and build you that awesome crafting studio! :) I like that criss-cross yarn stash shelf. That would be so fun!


It was lovely to hear from you today, Friend. Come back and visit again soon.
