mixing up the holidays
Here in Canada we're celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend. Our holiday is a few weeks earlier than in the U.S., but so is our harvest. Makes sense, right? It was nice to have dinner with my sister and family, complete with a Turkey and all the trimmings. And a three day weekend also doesn't come amiss.
But when the craft store informed me that they no longer carried the safety eyes I need to finish my frog, that bit of bad news put a wrench in my knitting plans. So I've ordered them online, but it may be a few weeks before they arrive. In the meantime I'm getting a head start on my Christmas knitting. At first, for the pattern Deck the Balls, I planned to use sock yarn leftovers. Until I came across a ball of icicle yarn in the yarn from my Mom, which got me thinking ... snowball ornaments!
