It's the 5th of January and all that's left to take down is the Christmas tree. Normally, I don't take it down until the 5th, my Dad's birthday, and even though he's gone now, I still can't bring myself to take it down before then. Do you have any holiday traditions that you still hold onto from childhood?

on to a little knitting/felting fun...

Do you like adorable?
Are you crazy for kits?
Did you collect toys as a child or adult?
How about a KuKu doll kit from The Dolly Mamas? They are sooo fun and adorable, come in a kit and there are several to make, felt, and collect. And if that wasn't perfect enough - a portion of the sales goes to child related causes. HOORAY! I think we have a winner.

You can view these lovelies on Creative Warehouse, peruse The Dolly-Mamas site for all the crafty goodness that will astound you OR if you have the lastest copy of KnitSimple Winter 2008/09, turn to page 8 in the knits + that section. (Note: The Holiday Issue is still posted on their site and will not show the doll kits as of this writing). You can also email

More fun coming your way soon -

A Knit/Crochet Along announcement - join in!

An interview with the fabulous and busy Rachel-Marie of - we love that!

And tools of the knitting trade to keep you motivated and in style. (always a cool idea when you're knitting in public)

Also, if you liked the blog on New Year's Knitting Resolutions and would like to let us know how you're doing - which ones you accomplished, or which ones you frogged, that's ok too- please comment.
