Tis the Season

Well, Thanksgiving means the beginning of the holiday season and although I’ve started off with a sluggish start I’m starting to get into the flow of things. We even found Cher the CUTEST Santa sweater at Marshalls last week. How can this little Misses Claus not get you happy about the holiday season?

Most of the sales started before Friday or even Cyber Monday so I decided to get a jump start on my holiday yarn shopping. I am not doing a ton of knitted gifts this season, I’m just hoping to finish a sweater for my sister Anne, a sweater or a massive scarf for my sister Helen and if I have time, something for my Mom. I’m not as pressed to get things finished by Christmas because they’re my immediate family and they know how special a hand knit sweater is but I’ve already made some great progress over the holiday weekend on Anne’s sweater so I think I’ve made some realistic goals. I will note that in this picture it’s mainly a lot of Lion Brand Heartland Yarn (like on my Mountain High sweater) and Patons Classic Wool. I also took advantage of the Yarnspirations.com sales and got 50% off of my favorite Caron Simply Soft to build up my stash for the 2 baby girls coming in the new year and my favorite little girl Maddie 🙂

I’ve got a really silly sweater project planned for my cousin with this Boss Bitch patch and some warm and cozy Patons Wool. I see a simple raglan with a statement making patch in her future. Aside from some yarn shopping (oh and believe I picked up enough for some more sweater projects for myself!) last week I cooked in my kitchen, knit and hung out with friends. Not a bad week at all.

Any good sales today I should be aware of? I’ve been resisting a lot of temptation but I like being tempted so do share!
