Nittany Knits

Sunday, November 25, 2007

And so begins the official start of the 2007 Holiday Season.

To some of you this is the most magical time of the year. You love to shop. Not just for fiber related items. You have that gene that I am missing. You shop in malls- and you like it!

I am missing that particular gene, except when it comes to yarn. Specifically, sock yarn. Shopping and shopping malls depress me. It's just too much.

One of these years I am just going to throw a crafty old fashioned Christmas. Everything I give will have to be made by my own two hands. I have a job that kicks into full gear this time of year, so to be ready for a craft Christmas I would have to start crafting in January. I keep saying I'm going to do it, but I never do.

Perhaps I just need to start a 12 months of Christmas knitting group. Every month we meet and work on Christmas gifts. Couldn't turn out any worse that my attempt to make the Great American Aran Afghan!

Here's hoping we all keep the reason for the season ahead of all the commercialism and hype, and come out the other end with our sanity.

Remember, tomorrow is Monday. Knit something for yourself! Happy Knitting!


  • I've been doing more online shopping this year, specifically at It is all handmade stuff. Lots of yarny stuff too!
    Starting in January isn't a bad idea.
