I spied this card on the Yarn Harlot’s gift guide and I’m just in love with it. (I also really like this one but only because I wish it said ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY.) I guess you could say there’s a bit of an anti-gift theme going on around here. I hate to seem like a downer. I really do love giving handmade gifts! This should be a safe place to complain and even laugh about the stress of holiday times.
>> I made a couple of pies for Thanksgiving which was exhausting on top of everything else. I feel like a total failure looking at this knitted pie crust. It’s so gorgeous, how could you eat it!?
>> Every knitter on the internet is looking for the Katniss Cowl. I swear I’ve never seen a more popular piece of knitwear. I wrote about the cowl before but here’s an interview with its designer Maria Dora about the unique piece that is quickly becoming iconic!
>> The big, bad sale weekend may be over but the time shop independent is NOT. Check the list (and add your own favorite). There are tons of small businesses with perfect, unique gifts for your friends!
>> I’ve watched this commercial six times. It’s still funny. If you get a package from me, watch out. Did you get the cozies?
>> If you need some knitsperation, Paper Mag has a list of their top 10 knitwear designers in the fashion industry.

These socks would make a great gift, though.
“Didn’t you say you weren’t going to knit holiday gifts this year?”
It’s ok, it’s not like I had plans anyway.
It won’t be fair to just knit for one person. Ok, one more hat won’t throw off my schedule. I got this.
Wait. Chanukah is early this year?
Why do I even do this?
But I can only blame myself.
Miraculously, I somehow manage to finish just in time.
And everyone loves their gifts.
What are your holiday knitting plans? Did you start early this year? (No one will be mad if you buy them a Ricefield Collective hat instead.)

It’s already turning out to be a rough week. I’ve spent a few too many nights building Ikea furniture. (I really can’t stop myself when I go to Ikea.) Anyway, since there’s not much to report on my knitting front (still working on that damn faire isle sweater), let’s just have a laugh.

It’s Friday. Let’s get the weekend started early.
Happy knitting this weekend! Are you making progress on your holiday knits?
Last night, Barack Obama won the election. I could not be happier. I was up all night watching coverage of all of the returns, so nervous I couldn’t even knit. That being said, there is not a proper post today. Just celebrating. Let’s have some gifs.
Stuck in the waiting room without my knitting, I’m totally like:
