Xmas shopping going on over here.........
Let me begin by saying that I really hate to see a business not succeed, especially a yarn shop. It is truly sad and unfortunate there was one that closed down in my area this weekend.
But I was able to reap the benefits on some of their inventory during the 50% off closeout sale
I got a mini-haul! (you should have seen the bags upon bags folks were buying!) Well, there goes my knit budget for the month!
Of course your gurl was real smart and had no 'plan of action' on what she wanted or was going to do with the yarn she picked out. *whispers* please help me.....my stash is growing and I can't control it and nowhere to put it!! Ugh! I am turning into one of "them" ;op
Yesterday at work, my co-worker Sarah was proudly adorned in her very own hand knit sweater by her mother about 20 years ago. Isn't it just beautiful!! It is perfect for the holiday! Y'all know I love that bright red and just had to take a picture of her! Sarah is one of my faithful lurkers on my blog! :o) And she is a knitter too!! YAH!
My co-workers really do support me in my knitting passion. In fact, this past work week we had a "Holiday Craft Soiree" where we were knitting, felting stockings, signing cards and wrapping gifts while playing Christmas music during our lunch hour. Gotta love it!
Hope everyone is getting done with their last minute shopping and errands.
As for me I am taking it easy over here, and remembering that Christ is the reason for this time of year for me to celebrate!
