Holiday weekend

I hope that everyone had a safe and happy Thanksgiving weekend. Kudos to you if you braved the crowds on Black Friday and if you did, I hope that you got some wonderful bargains. As I’d hoped, our weekend was quiet. I parked my car in the drive on Tuesday afternoon, after I got home from school, and didn’t get back into it until this morning when I had to leave for work. It was lovely especially as we had temps in the single digits with negative wind chill temps on Thursday and Friday.


I finished an afghan for a Christmas gift and, of course, the young man’s favorite color is black so I went from black bed socks to a black afghan.


I also finished a wool cap (dark brown) and a messy bun hat (also in black) for orders I received at the craft fair a week past. They worked up quickly, but I’m really rather tired of dark-colored yarn. I’m hoping that my Red Heart Fair Isle shows up today so that I can start on an ear flap hat with some bright colors! I suspect that the knitting light that will sit around my neck will appear soon as I’ve done just about all of my dark projects for Christmas, but it will still be much appreciated.


Did you manage to work on some projects over the weekend or did you have your hands full with family, friends, and activities?


  1. The throw is very striking! I love the texture and color.

    • Thank you! The black was a bit tough as it’s been overcast and I don’t have any bright lights in the living room. Should probably look into that.

      • I used to have an Ott Lite. Loved it!

      • I will keep that in mind. I ordered a knitting lamp that is a tube that sits around your neck. I didn’t realize that it would take 2 -3 weeks to get here. I thought that since I am finished with dark yarns for a moment or two it would arrive soon.
