little pines

i've been busy, busy, busy helping amythefibergoddess prepare for Christmas on the Farm. We've been painting yarn, and brainstorming ideas for her event. she truly has a knack for pulling these things together, and i'm along as a sounding board.... and a 'hey can you do this?' helper.
earlier this week ( and by earlier i mean monday) she calls and tells me about a new pattern that she found. so i'm thinking... 'when does she have time to look at ravelry for patterns', but choose to just go along with it. so the pattern is for wee tiny little pine trees that you put over a wine cork. are you with me? wee..... tiny..... trees. before i even realize what is happening, i'm knitting
trees! all of my yarn had been packed up and sent to the garage for the holidays. i had to rummage around for green yarn (not a problem here). my love of all shades of green paid off.

tonight i made it to ten completed trees. it takes me forty-five minutes to make a tree. it's like eating popcorn... you can't stop at one kernel. if you're in the area i hope to see you on the farm!
