All I want for Christmas... + a Christmas gift for you!

It's Christmas! I know, I know... A lot of you won't be unwrapping presents until tomorrow, but today or rather tonight is the big moment we've all been waiting for around here.

Now I wanted to take the time to wish you all a very merry Christmas and let you know what my only wish from all of you is this year, in case you are feeling a little generous...

Wouldn't it be nice to have a great new pattern to cast on during all the festivities tomorrow? And wouldn't it be even nicer to know that with the purchase of said pattern you had made a contribution towards cancer research?

Most of you know what I'm going to wish for, but in the interest of beginning my theme for next year a little early, I'll tell you why I'm wishing for it as well.

I had hoped, that I could send the Danish Cancer Society a big fat check at the end of the year, but right now I've only sold one copy of the Everyday Rockstar and while I'm very thankful for the sale and the money it raised, it doesn't exactly make for a big fat check...

So if you are feeling generous or need a last minute gift for a dear Ravelry friend or just need a hat because you accidentally left your old one on the train on your way home, may I suggest you go with the Everyday Rockstar - together we can beat cancer through research and secure many more merry Christmases for families all over the world. When you spend the 15DKK or ca. $2,5 you'll contribute just over 10DKK/$1.67* to cancer research. *Depending on exchange rate, paypal fee and Ravelry fee. 

There you have it, all I want for Christmas is YOU -
Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night!  

Wait, whaaaat! You really thought I'd leave you hanging without telling you about my very special Christmas gift for you? You should know me better!

Well, I've been working hard on creating an e-book, called Faithful Knitting, for all of you and it will be send out to everyone on my email list tomorrow. If you see this after Christmas then don't worry, if you sign up you'll still receive the gift, but wouldn't it be nice to have a brand new e-book to read on Christmas day about faith and knitting?
Oh, and in case you aren't Christian and think you wouldn't care for the book, I just want to share something on of my proof readers, Cami, told me:

"As someone who was raised Christian, but no longer considers herself a Christian, I would say there is plenty in your book that can/should be considered by a non-Christian audience."

Sign up now to be among the first to receive the e-book tomorrow.

  1. Merry Christmas, Pia! As a German living in the UK I am combining two different traditions at Christmas, but today is still the most important day of the festive season for me. I hope you enjoy these days, get rest and peace, and spend time with those you love.

    I will be sharing your blog post so the amount on the cheque to fight cancer will grow.

    1. Thank you dear Nadia, I hope your day was just as lovely as mine.

  2. Happy holidays to you too! I'm looking forward to reading the e-book :)

  3. Wow I had no idea that you were a Christian, cannot wait to read this book :-) Merry Christmas

    1. Oh really?! My gig as a full time student is studying theology. I spend all day studying the Bible and reading about Christianity :)

    2. When I read you study Theology I just didn't click that it was of the Bible :-) If there is one area of my faith I feel needs most improvement it is definitely spending more time with my Bible!

    3. So many people I meet actually have no idea what the study of theology is all about, but yes the Bible is certainly a large part of it. We learn both OT Hebrew and NT Greek as wall as Latin so we can read everything in the 'original' language. You should join me in 2015 - I'm planning to spend more personal time in the Word and if you want, I could easily do a post a month on what I'm reading and why..
