Silent Night

It’s starting to look like Christmas here at The Loopy Ewe. Just a little. Besides this and the door wreath and a string of lights, that’s about the extent of it. I wish my house was so quick and easy to decorate!  That’s on my schedule for this weekend. (How far ahead do you all decorate for the holidays?) Since I’m here at Loopy Cental more hours in my day than I am at home, we had to have a little something holiday-ish here.

Speaking of the holidays, here is a photo of the new Limited Edition color for December from Cherry Tree Hill, called Silent Night. (Along with the companion solid color, Cornflower.)  We get all of the limited edition colorways in Supersock Select, because we love that soft yarn base and the way it takes the color so vibrantly.  These are enroute to us and we’ll have them up for you as soon as they get here. Did you get the other Limited Edition colors?  We have a few Burnished Berry left, and then there was Very Scary and Pilgrim’s Progress.  It’s fun to see what they come up with each month.

It’s time to welcome new Loopy Groupies again! Remember, you make Loopy Groupie status when you get your 6th package from us. We send along a special welcome bag for you with that order, and you get an email when we put up the major re-stocks (aka: Sneak Ups) each week. From time to time, we also do a Loopy Groupie Appreciation Month and this is one of those months!  With your first December order, all LG’s will be receiving our favorite calendar, the Romney Ridge Farm calendar for 2009. (Isn’t this a face to love?)

Remember, Friday is our first reporting day for this week’s Random Acts of Kindness Contest. I know some of you are having fun with this and I can’t wait to read all of the heartwarming things that you’ve been doing.

  1. I vote for artificial this way you can enjoy it for as long as possible. In saying this I will probably not put up a tree this year as we are going away the week before Christmas and will return Christmas Day. But I do have table top decorations out and I will probably put up my lighted houses this weekend.

    Have a wonderful holiday season!

  2. I’d love to put up a real tree, or evergreen swags, but my allergies would make it unbearable. I received a cute poodle Christmas figure (Danbury Mint) that’s a tree (and it lights up!) for my birthday (recently passed) and this weekend, I’ll be rearranging the TV topper to accommodate it.

    At work I keep perpetual cheer in my peace lily with a sprig of fake shamrocks!!! Seeing that silly green foil amongst the live greenery makes me laugh. Then again, I also have a small jack-o-lantern and a poodle Beanie Baby dressed up like a witch by the computer.

    Ah, Holidays! Not just for one time of year. : D

  3. I have to say, real tree for me. We had an artificial one when I was growing up and the only nice thing about it was that it was so covered with ornaments that you couldn’t see the tree. When I was a teenager we convinced mt dad to get a real one, and ahve never gone back.

    And all I can say is, with all those loopy groupies, it’s no wonder I can never get the wollmeise yarn! Can’t wait till I can sneak a few more orders past my husband and achieve that status myself!


  4. I have to build up my immune system (or maybe break it down? I don’t know) to have a real tree, since I have icky pine/fir allergies. So it’s almost always a fake tree here at my house, although my yarn room has 3 tiny (1 foot) metallic colored trees (I think there’s a silver one, a purple one, and a teal one) with disco ball ornaments…they’re pretty fun. And I hang fake garland from the shelf in there, too. It’s my relaxing happy room, so it’s really the main place I decorate.

  5. as much as I LOVE to decorate for Christmas, I can’t bring myself to start until the weekend after Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is such an important holiday I don’t want it to be overshadowed by Christmas. Besides its hard for me to be sitting down eating Thanksgiving dinner with a Christmas tree behind me!
    As for tree, we have to go with an artificial one. I’m srsly allergic to real ones (its not pretty). Our tree is huge, 8.5feet tall and about 3 feet wide. I need my husband to help me take it down. Which is why it usually stayed up till April and one of my good friends helps me take it down! A few years ago I decorated it with all my sock yarn, told my husband if it didn’t come down I was going to buy more ornaments 😉

  6. Definitely a real tree. There is a great tree farm just down the road from us – they are locally and lovingly grown for just this purpose.

    Is it RAoK posting day? This week I bought kitchen tools to give our local Campus Kitchen crew for Christmas, to make their applesauce making easier next year. Campus Kitchen rescues unused but prepared food, repackages it, and serves it to people in need. This year they gleaned fallen apples from local orchards and made applesauce. The Oxo vegetable peeler and apple corer/slicer will make this job much easier next year!

  7. I love the real trees! But I have to admit that sometimes I think having a artificial one is better for numerous reasons. 1. Easy to put up and take down 2. My kitty does not get sick from chewing on the needles, and 3. It is better not to cut down a tree every year. But, Boy do I still love the smell of those real trees.
