The Merry KAL is all about carrying along a bit of the Christmas spirit throughout the year. Nothing quite says ‘The Holidays’ like family — whether it is the time of year your family makes you especially crazy or a time that you really enjoy traditions & visiting together or maybe a bit of both, odds are you spend at least some of your holiday with loved ones. Tomorrow is a very special day for my little family, my band of loved ones — it is the 10th anniversary of the day my husband & I said, ‘I do.’
My view of marriage on May 2, 2003 was much different than it is today. There have been bumps in the road as my husband and I learned each other’s idiosyncrasies over the last decade, but somehow we are still in love, still make each other laugh, and still love to spend time together. At the end of each day, I am thankful that he’s the one I face each day with — whether we are having the time of our life or sparring (or celebrating a holiday!) there is no one I would rather have at my side.
In honor of this special day and the hugs & kisses we share with our loved ones at the holidays, there is a choice of two Christmas balls this month:
Christmas Ball #14: X’s and O’s Version 1
Christmas Ball #15: X’s and O’s Version 2
As usual, you can do either or both or a ball of your choosing — it is up to you! And don’t forget to post your photos of your work throughout the month and chat with us on our Ravelry thread — we’d love to hear from you!
