We’re rapidly approaching my favorite day of the year–the day after the shortest day of the year. This year the winter solstice is Tuesday, December 22. On Wednesday, December 23, the Earth’s rotation will begin to tilt the northern hemisphere incrementally closer to the sun and each day will be a bit longer (until the summer solstice in June, of course, when the tables get turned).

In celebration of the end of the “darkness,” I’m holding a raffle. Tell me which of my books you’d like (visit for the details) and I’ll enter you in a drawing.

bookshelfOn Wednesday, when those of us in the northern hemisphere finally get a little more light each day, I’ll post the winner.

The fine print: New Directions in Sock Knitting is not eligible because it isn’t available yet. You’ll get a chance for that book later.
