Yes it is that time of year (how can you miss it with all the perfume ads). Looking back on last year and what I wrote, I knew the blog had to be written a different way so hence the title. This is a great time of year giving lots of people time to reflect on the year gone by and the things which are important (not just crochet and related subjects). To some it is family to others a time of rest or a time to give thanks. What do you like about this time of year? It also means more time to crochet. Also time to plan for all the crochet projects (and yarn required) for next year.
Back to the title!! I am ready to admit that like most (but not all) men, I am terrible at getting the present for the wife right. I must admit I do have my moments (now and then). This year we have decided to do it different. (For all those guys who get it wrong take note). I was informed by the wife that there was a box sitting at the back of the counter of love wool NI (the wifes favorite yarn shop in are local town) with my name on it! Filled with yarn, a pattern and a project to do over Christmas (she is insisting she has nothing new to do). All I have to do is take my wallet and pay for it. That sounds good to me because it means the wife gets what she wants and I get it right this year (which is always good). This is a good way to take some of the stress out of Christmas.
A few other things to mention, you can now buy the wife’s paid patterns via the blog, which will save you looking for them on other sites. If you buy a pattern from the blog we will send it to you via your email and until the 31st of this month you get 25% off them (if bought from the blog). We hope to be bringing other things to the blog, more on that next blog.
Which just leaves me time to say a big THANK YOU for all your support and to wish you a Happy Christmas, hoping your other half gets it right. If not show them this and get a box with their name on it.
