In November, the ghosts have been replaced by garlands of red leaves and colourful gourds ready for Thanksgiving at the end of the month. Then in December, Christmas lights and berry‐laden door decorations appear. It's magical.
It's a wonderful build‐up to the end of year celebrations but more than that, the changing of the decorations gives us all a good "Heads Up!" that the Festive Season is well and truly on its way.
So this week's “Knitting Ahead” idea is all about getting ready for your next big family event by making a brand‐new table runner. These are always an elegant way to dress up your table, whether it is a small centrepiece for a display of fruits and vegetables or a lovely long runner falling gracefully over the ends of the table‐top.
I shall be posting details about a new pattern, the Hamilton Table Runner in my next blogpost so please click the link at the bottom of this page to read that. In the mean-time, decide what your “theme” is going to be for the year and that should help you decide the colour you want for your next table runner!
Until next time – Happy Knitting!
