The Littlest Gingerbread House
This reminds me of my house. All crooked and ugly and surrounded with snow. It's like the little crooked tree in the Charlie Brown television show that I remember from childhood. The tree is crooked and ugly and nobody wants it until Charlie Brown comes along to give it a home and love it.
It's been a nice family Christmas filled with fiber, both spun and un-spun. I brought two neckwarmers that I knit (the first one you've seen and a repeat), hoping to give them away. My sister has been knitting for years, her house is filled with expertly knit items and her family is to-the-gills with knitting. They were unimpressed and I will return with the same two I came out with. It was like giving ice to eskimos. The mark of a good salesman is to be able to sell ice to eskimos. Me, I couldn't even give ice to eskimos.
Hope Christmas finds you and yours happy and well!
