Craft Friday

Beverly came up with the idea of Craft Friday and as I began to read about it with increasing frequency on quite a few blogs, it seemed only natural that I should declare myself as a participant because:
  1. It's what I would normally be doing on Friday after Thanksgiving (and most other days).
  2. I really dislike shopping, especially on Black Friday. 
  3. I get to knit vicariously together with friends!
  4. I can blog about it. There are only a few more days in NaBloPoMo and I'm really searching. 

My plan for today is to knit and sew. I'll be finishing the Gabriel Roni hat for my brand new great-nephew, working on my Happy Times with Ryan Hitchhiker, and sewing some of these rice-filled shoulder heating pads. It's going to be a low-key, no-pressure day, with Thanksgiving leftovers, Netflix, maybe an audiobook, knitting, and sewing. I really want to finish Gabriel's hat as he's two days old and deserves a warm welcome to the world, but my only goals for the other projects are progress and enjoyment.

So Happy Craft Friday to all! Just think how much happier we are, crafting, far from the madding crowds!


  1. I didn't officially sign up for Craft Friday because I thought the idea was Christmas knitting and I don't really knit for Christmas. I will be working on my NaKnitSweMo sweater, though. I'm not going to finish by 12/1 but I'm close!

  2. I'll be crafting, relaxing, walking and doing anything I can except SHOP! Enjoy your day!

  3. Smokey set his alarm for 7am so he could hit Menard's Black Friday sale. I rolled over and went back to sleep.

  4. Knitting with you from afar, slowly getting things back in order, a couple of good hot cups of tea. Great day!

  5. trust you knew I was knitting along, too (as well as decorating and making up a tasty cocktail or two!)
