12th December - Getting ready for a new cast on

I've never managed to have a Christmas Eve cast on before, but this year I'm more organized.  I saw that Black Sheep Wools was once again doing a betwixmas pattern so I treated myself to my last yarn purchase of the year, and it arrived today ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

The yarn is a beautiful soft DK Alpaca by King Cole.  I chose the Platinum colour because I thought it would go with everything although all the other colour choices are equally as nice.

I'll be winding the yarn over the weekend and it will be going straight into our Christmas Eve box ready to start on Christmas Eve :-)

Well, we are half way through the Advents already!! I really look forward to opening these little packages when I get home ๐Ÿงถ

Jo included a cute little cross stitch kit in with today's yarn, thank you Jo :-)
The other two are of course Craft House Magic and Lay Family Yarn,  I forgot to say before, there is a theme to the Lay Family Yarn minis, I will tell you what it is once I've opened them all ๐Ÿ˜‰  There was also a few little extra goodies in the box and a sock pattern by Sew Sweet Violet to download.  Again I will post a photo of the extra goodies once I've opened all 24.

oops, bit of a blury photo today!

I loved reading your comments on yesterday's post about your childhood presents  Thank you for joining me in remembering, it's funny what sticks in your mind is't it.  Jo, you reminded me that I had a post office set too :-) I do remember getting a Tiny Tears doll one year and at some point my sister cutting most of her hair off!

See you tomorrow

Stop tempting me, that yarn and pattern looks lovely, and what fun it will be to have a Christmas Eve cast on. No, I really mustn't. I love the colour you've chosen, as you say, it will go with everything.
