Sockret Santa

My Socket Pal is a Sockret Santa!

The outside of the package said, "Not an Official Sockret Pal Mailing," but inside was a delightful assortment of goodies! A darling card with cuddly kitties, some yummy candy canes, chocolate(!), a bunch of cutie-pie frog cut-outs in many shades of green (those are destined for my scrapbook pages!) -- AND -- the cutest, tiniest, sweetest little keychain-size sock blocker and sock pattern you ever saw! :) It's just perfect for all my little sock-yarn odds 'n' ends. What an unexpected surprise! Thank you, Socket Pal, for a very sweet & thoughtful Christmas gift package! :)

A very Merry Christmas to you and yours, and a Happy Knitting New Year, too!

A few of my favorite things...

I put up my little Christmas tree this past weekend, and noticed that I have an awful lot of FROG ornaments! Each one was a gift from a thoughtful friend, and each one has the friend's name and the date of the gift written on the ornament with an extra-fine Sharpie. I love putting them on the tree each year, and enjoy the warm rush of memories triggered by each one as I remember faces, events, and emotions. What a great way to enjoy the Christmas Spirit!
