Yep, it's the day when everyone gets their online shopping done while at work so no one knows what they've ordered. It's a brilliant development in the holiday shopping season over the last couple of years. I'm not sure how the bosses feel about it - but judging by the amount of money that is expected to be spent today (in the billions) I'm going to think that the bosses are shopping too.

My holiday sale continues and as you look around the site you'll see

So here I am getting ready for Thanksgiving 2014. I really really want to say that it will be "no big deal" or "it's just a regular meal" or "it's not really tomorrow, I have loads of time to prepare".

But I don't like to lie, even to myself. It's a flaw I know.

Anywho, so tomorrow is the big day and I just realized that I don't have a pan big enough for the turkey that I bought. I'm assuming it'll fit

Like the majority of the USA and Canada we have been having such. cold. weather. Like freeze your niblets off kind of weather! I'll admit that cold for Houston is probably spring time for Duluth, but for us 38 degrees is extreme. Luckily there is yarn, and hooks, and animals to keep me warm as this polar vortex passes through.

There is a huge event coming up this weekend in Manhattan, It's VK Live y'all!!! If you've never been it's unlike any other fiber-related event out there! The market is outstanding, the classes are stellar, and the banquets and keynote speakers are totally A-list.

And speaking of A-list, the incomparable knit and crochet designer Kristin Omdahl is headed to NYC right now!

She will be having, for the very first time ever, her very own

Being an introvert, one of the joys of working out of a studio that's in my home is that there is a lot of quiet time. A LOT. Sometimes I go to the grocery store just to interact with the 3-D people. Bless their hearts, they usually have a deer in the headlights look when I'm finally finished yammering at them about fascinating topics such as cheese! and kitty litter!

Note: going to the grocery store actually has a 100% success rate of making me feel good about myself.
