1. Instead of taking my class tonight (the series of graduate classes I've been taking the past year), I skipped it. Because I found out today that some other coursework I took was approved and I can sit for my boards in January!!! WOohooo!!! (trying to ignore the fact that that means January will be super super busy now)
2. It is Friday!! And though I work next week, it is hopefully a fun mellow one since it is the week before the holidays.
3. I finished that hat I was working on tonight. More knitting now that I don't have that class. Plus chunky yarn is made of win!
4. I have a new design being released in the next week or so. It will be the first of a collection (more details soon!!). It features the lovely Sunshine Yarns colorwork kits. Here's a sneak peek...
5. I'm so glad you guys are enjoying the blogiversary specials! Since I probably won't have time to prep one for Saturday, I'm doing two for today and tomorrow. You still have time to knit up a Dancette for Christmas.
Dancette $3.00 until December 15, 2012 (11:59pm PST).
And just in case you really need a few last minute gifts....
Naylor Street $3.00 until December 15, 2012 (11:59pm PST).
Perfect for everyone in the family!
6. Time for a contest!! A few lucky winners will win an IGK pattern of their choice from the IGK ravelry shop and one fabulous winner will win a yarny prize too! All you need to do to enter is tell me a favorite holiday tradition you have this time of year....or something special you enjoy this time of year.... a new tradition? old one? One you miss? Please be sure to leave a way to contact you (e.g., ravelry id, email address)
I'll start. Last year my family started two new traditions that we'll be doing in the next week. First, seeing the Nutcracker in San Francisco. It was magical last year and I can't wait to go again. Second, my mom, sister and I spent a day in the city enjoying all of the holiday decorations, doing some shopping, and having just a fun day together. We're doing that this Saturday. Can't wait!!
Leave a comment by December 15, 2012 (11:59pm PST) and I'll announce the winners this weekend.
