Thursday's Thoughts: DROPS Advent Calendar

My children have an advent calendar every year.  When they were little it had pictures, some years toys but most of the time they get the ones with chocolate candy.  I had them growing up as well and I can still have one at DROPS.

DROPS is a Scandinavian yarn company that puts out all sorts of cool patterns for free.  I've heard a lot of people say they won't use them because they have pretty models posing on the beach in heavy knitwear.  Well, those beaches are really cold.  But here is a link to this year's advent calendar full of all sorts of fun Christmassy things to knit or crochet:  DROPS.  This is the American English one.  You can get the patterns in a whole bunch of different languages.

Once you are on the site, it is worth looking around at the Christmas workshop (patterns from previous years) and their catalogs which are just full of all sorts of cool patterns for knitwear and crochet.  I like to look through it just to get ideas sometimes.

Thursday's thoughts are sharing of ideas, links and inspiration.  Want to see more?  The check out the Bits and Bobs Zone.
