We wish ewe a merry knitmas!

While I'm waiting for the coffee to brew, so I can make some Mexican hot-chocolate for breakfast, I thought I'd share a couple photos of some of the Trinity Street Christmas lights...there's a street that's about 10 blocks long in our neighbourhood, and every year, most of the houses put up lights. You can buy a ballot and vote for the best house, and the proceeds go to a neighbourhood daycare centre. These were two that I liked the best; the first for the whimsical strings of snowflakes and icicles strung above the cones:

And the second, for illustrating West Coast ingenuity. No snow for a white Christmas?

No problem! Use quilt batting! Yards and yards of it! At night, after a little rain and a little wine, it's startlingly effective!

Merry merry to you and yours. However and with whomever you celebrate, I wish you light and whimsy and joy!

The cones are awesome! We have a street here that goes all out for Christmas - they even broadcast their own radio station of holiday music
