It took me a little longer to embrace it this year. But there is no denying it now - Christmas is just around the corner. Our little town is in full swing. It started with our first Black Friday promotion followed by the big Town Light Up ceremony Friday night. And last night Santa stopped by our parade of lights.
The stores seem to have stepped up their decorations and shoppers seem to be getting on the "buy local" bandwagon. It's all good. You can feel the change of attitude downtown. However, despite weeks of unseasonably warm weather, the cold chill of late November blew in this morning. (With a vengeance). Perhaps just in time to snap me into Christmas mode.
My rug has stalled again. I started hooking in the background and I'm just not feeling it. Part of me said " just hurry up, finish it, and move on". The other part of me said "sleep on it". So that's what I did. It sits in the corner.
Yesterday when I was downtown I saw some cute knit cowl scarfs. I thought "I could make those". So last night after the parade I grabbed my knitting needles and some fun boucle yarn and made this
It is very cozy and came in handy today with that cold wind blowing. I've started another one in beige but its different yarn and its not knitting up as quickly. If I can find some more of the boucle yarn I might make a few and see how they do on etsy.
I can't believe Christmas is just a month from today. I guess it's going to come whether I'm ready or not ;)
