Santa in Crochet


Crocheted Christmas ornaments were all the rage years ago, and somebody who could work the tiny crochet hook through slender cotton thread spent untold hours making them.

I purchased this and many other crocheted ornaments at arts and crafts festivals, and Santa with his stringy beard is still among my favorites.

We have a friend, who every year, sends a crocheted ornament. She works on them all year to tuck into Christmas cards. It's a charming treat.

Nice decoration, quite a contrast to my post today.

I beg your forgiveness for my cutting and pasting – yet constantly reworking – this comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise.

You cannot know the pain it causes me to admit that I am a mere mortal (and that the magical elves on my staff have little respect for my authority or their salary packages. Consequently, the reindeer are all filthy and out of shape and the elves that have shown up for work all seem a little worse for wear, if you catch my drift. All they seem to do is sit around smoking, playing cards and telling dirty jokes! Rudolph is livid.

Anyway, from myself, Henry and Ezra, have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus and a happy New Year!

I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, your stocking is stuffed full of lots of tasty treats and not coal and that all your gingerbread men/women come out smiling.

My Grandmother used to make these also. I think I still have one somewhere. Merry Christmas.
