Merry Christmas from our family to yours as we begin the "most wonderful week of the year". It's a hectic week for sure, but hopefully we all can find some joy in the season. I am recuperating from a very minor procedure but the time off from work has been extended by a few days. Luckily I worked hard to get my Christmas things done and that has left a lot of time for knitting---and making a yarn family, including the dog!!
