Happy knitty holidays

Every year, I commission my friend and colleague, Gary Cangemi to commemorate my family in a personalized Christmas card. The card's participants vary based on the particulars of my life, but the thing that remains constant is Gary's tremendous talent and gift for fun.

I asked him to spin up a cute knitting-related card this year. He'll never know how close he got to my real life! Most evenings, you will find me pajama-clad and curled up with pets knitting away. My girlfriend, Theresa says this card makes me look frumpy and that I am not frumpy! I don't know... sometimes I'm probably frumpy, like at night when I'm knitting. But who cares? I step it up when I'm rendevousing with my boyfriend, but even he doesn't care about a little frumpiness now and then.

So from my house to yours, I wish you a very warm and wooly holiday!


  1. I don't seem to be able to get to your cards on Facebook. I end up with an error message. I very much like this years though - especially your slippers :)

  2. Lynn, thanks for letting me know. I posted another link. Facebook albums are a bit wonky... if you can't get it the album, please let me know. And thanks for reading my blog!

  3. Yep...that's your caricature! What a lovely card. Love the slippers!

    A Merry Christmas and Healthy and Prosperous New Year, Julie!

  4. I absolutely LOVE your cards! Especially the 2006 one (I think that was the year, it was the first one of you alone). Thank you for sharing! :)

  5. They're really great, aren't they? The caricaturist, Gary Cangemi, is amazing. Thanks for the compliment and for reading my blog!
