The best way to let everyone know "A knitter lives here" (or "A knitter loves someone who lives here") is to hang a sign on the door! Inspired by Elizabeth Zimmermann, JOY is quick to knit and employs some clever use of i-cord and garter stitch. Consider it 21st-century Christmas Fiddle Faddle. If you can knit, increase, and decrease, you can add a little holiday joy to your home (or office).
Pattern includes instructions for making small and large garlands (including how to work i-cord), as well as templates for cutting out felt letters to spell JOY, PEACE, MERRY, CHRISTMAS, HAPPY, HANUKKAH, NEW, and YEAR.
16 stitches x 16 rows = 4" in garter stitch

I live and knit in New York City and Bath, Maine, with my husband and our three children, getting my style fix in the one and my New England (Red Sox/cranberry bog/lobster roll/chilly nights in need of a sweater) fix in t'other.
