Holiday Open House, Kent, WA

The holidays are rapidly approaching! Have you been to Downtown Kent lately? Take a stroll down Meeker and 1st Avenue and treat yourself to holiday lights, decorations and displays. I noticed Santa's house going up at Kent Station this morning as I was knitting alongside the fireplace. How exciting! Now, those of you who know me know that I am always cold. You are probably wondering if I froze my hands off. The fireplace is actually quite inviting and cozy. Not too many people are out that time of morning. And Dilettante is just a few steps away. I just finished my hat made out of Rowan's Cocoon. The only thing that I could possibly use is a pair of fingerless gloves. I imagine my gauge will be off, however, so those might just have to wait.

Anyway, here are a few moments we captured over this year's Holiday Open House. For those of you who came out to see what your downtown has to offer - THANK YOU! For those of you who missed us, make sure to mark December 1st on your calendar. It's a Holly Jolly Day in Kent as we celebrate Winterfest 2007!

I Love this Yarn!!

The yarn is Rowan's Cocoon! It is 80% Merino Wool/20% Kid Mohair. It knits up quick coming in at 3.5 sts/inch on a US 11. I just finished this ribbed watch cap on a US 10.5. I love the stitch definition, the feel of the yarn and the warmth! I'm thinking about picking up sts to knit an attached cabled scarf. We will see where that idea goes!
