Holiday Love 2016 Sale!


Hi, Knitters,
I hope your December is off to a great start! We are doing well over here with lots and lots of knitting and pattern writing and packing orders and making plans. We are loving every minute of it. 

We went to a new tree farm this year and it was the most pleasant and fun experience I think we've ever had when picking out our tree. We were the only people there when we went, no battling crowds and parking at all. We picked out our trees pretty quickly. There was sprawling countryside and a pond and rolling hills. There was a campfire burning with hotdogs for roasting. My husband couldn't pass that up. 


But I think the best part was that there was wreath making at the end. There were big tables set up with clamps. The clamps were operated with a foot pedal and they closed the wire rings around the pine branches. We kind of paired up and went to town making wreaths. We just had so much fun. I think we made five wreaths with all sorts of varieties of pine branches. We were only charged an extra dollar for the wreaths. It was all-around fantastic!

I hung my wreaths right away and put a red bow on each. They look great and I love them even more because we made them together. Yesterday I finished decorating my house for the holidays which is always fun. 

Anyway, what are you up to this season? I'd love to hear about it. 


Lastly, I am having a store-wide pattern sale with the theme Holiday Love 2016, for my Susan B. Anderson patterns and ebooks, starting today and ending Monday, December 5th, 2016.


Everything in my shop is 20% off using the coupon code: HOLIDAY2016

Thank you for the support and love! I'll be back soon with more.

Hi Susan, I would love to know the
name of the tree farm.

LOVE the picture of your family with the wreaths and Christmas tree. Doing things together is what makes the holidays special. You are all so creative. I'm always knitting gifts. I've almost finished a cardigan for my nephew. It's Gudrun Johnston's "Little Wave". You and I both know how talented she is. I'm sure I'll knit this again sometime. Thanks for continuing to inspire us with all that you do. Happy holidays to you and your entire family. Hugs from Kimmy.

Thank you for the coupon code, but I tried to use it to purchase "Baa," and Ravelry told me it isn't valid. (?)

Susan B. Anderson said...

The Baa pattern is not in my Ravelry pattern shop it is in the Barrett Wool Co. pattern shop, that's the reason it didn't work. Thanks for trying and for letting me know.
