Maya & Tallulah model their Christmas scarves

This year, I knitted scarves for my nieces. Not anything challenging or technical but heavy in the "pink and fluffy" category. At their ages, 2 & 4, the fluffiness category is more important than any other.

I received these photos of the girls trying the scarves on during the Christmas morning frenzy! I'm a little biased but I think they are adorable in the scarves, don't you??

Rudolpha is our Holiday Sock Yarn for 2008!

Take a peek at "Rudolpha"!! It's warm brown coat, combined with Rudolph's red nose and a feminine pink inspired the name change from Rudolph to Rudolpha.

The Unique Sheep has done it again! They hand dyed this festive colorway just for us and it is going fast! Rudolpha is the colorway and Verve is the yarn: a superwash merino, 400 yards, and cost $22 per skein. Verve is a best selling sock yarn for The Unique Sheep and we've heard many great compliments from knitters about this yarn.

If you'd like to purchase a skein give us a call. We will take your order by phone (336-768-5599). Or email us with your order and address and we can call you for your cc number.

Our winner hails from New Jersey this year! Elaine, your yarn will be in the mail tomorrow! Congrats to you, happy holidays, and a big thanks to all of you who made the guess the name game so much fun!!

We wish you a peaceful season with a few special hours of treasured knitting time!
Jo and the gang at Knit Picky!

We have a winner!!

We do....I just sent an email out making sure she could be 007-stealthy about it 'cause's top secret. Mum, hush, zip....until the Holiday Party on December 7th!

I love the yarn so much I've plucked out another skein as a door prize for Sunday night. So there's hope yet for another FREE skein. Of course it will be available in the shop on Tuesday, Dec 9th if we don't sell out at the party! ;)

Thanks to all who emailed/blogged and submitted guesses on Ravelry. That was fun. And what a batch of terrific names for next year's yarn!!
