...and all through the town, not a creature was working or clowning around.
For the sales had all started at each crafty store, and the deals were just super,
The buys were no chore.
All the yarn was 25% off, and I just couldn't help myself. I got enough for a couple pairs of socks, three skeins of yarn for hats for Green Bay school children, and enough Fisherman's Wool (Lion Brand) to knit a cabled sweater.
It was a little bit of heaven. Can't hang around here much this morning, I've got stuff to do - projects to finish, etc., so I can start these new projects. You understand, ...

Usually, this time of year, I would be baking Christmas cookies, but since Dad passed the family doesn't congregate here anymore. It is easier if we are the travelers. Oh, I will do some Christmas baking, because it's nice to take goodies with you when you go visiting, but it's not like I am feeding a dozen people three times a day the way I used to.
On the left are a pair of fingerless mitts that I started years ago. I discovered them in a bag yesterday and realized they were almost finished. I finally got it done. They sit atop a red and white dishcloth I will be taking to the guild meeting next week for the swap. The socks were not hand-made, but cranked out of yarn I got for a steal. The little booties are for the new great granddaughter and I've had a blast making them.
You all have a good weekend. Stay warm and dry.
