BAD KNITTERS ARE LIKE CHRISTMAS TREES?

My Dear Brother-in-Law showed up at our house for Christmas dinner, beaming because he had this joke to tell me:

Why are Christmas trees like bad knitters?
They both drop their needles!

This, from a man who is on the brink of completing his dissertation and earning his Ph.D. With entertainment like that, you know we had a rollicking good time here at the Chateau. In-laws -- gotta love 'em.

Christmas Eve day I took time out from wrapping, baking, and housecleaning to open that big box o' yarns that came for Two Swans Yarns. Here's a peek at some of the Harris yarns:

The Harris yarns have a whole range of grays, and then all of these lively colors, such as the Brill Pink you see in the photo at the right.

This tweedy one's called Apple:

Scrumptious, isn't it?

I hate to admit this, but I laughed at the joke.
The colors of those yarns are amazing. Wow. I can't wait to see the patterns that Rowan comes up with for this yarn.
