Knitting Progress and Stocking Up On Ornaments

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. Today I started to knit the second mitten of the mittens ornament pattern I found on Ravelry. I love this quick pattern and the gray and white colors look nice together for the mitten. The second mitten looks so large beside the finished one because I knit them on straight needles, then fold them afterwards into the mitten. I am looking forward to having these done soon to go on the Christmas tree.


I have been buying ornaments for the Christmas tree already this year and have added four new ones to my collection. The mouse on the left was a gift to me from my mom. The mouse is wearing a soft pink sweater with a button on the front and tiny cuffed denim jeans, the cutest thing. Next, the ornament at the top is a red ball with snowflakes around it from Ten Thousand Villages. The star below was also purchased at Ten Thousand Villages. I loved the embroidery on the star and the blue and pink colors were so pretty together. I bought them right after going to the Oakville Santa Clause parade. They never disappoint with their beautiful ornaments and decorations for Christmas. On the right is my newest ornament which I just purchased tonight on Black Friday at Indigo. Ornaments were 40% off and I couldn't resist. What is better than hot cocoa and fuzzy socks?  I love all the ornaments and I can't wait to decorate the Christmas tree in December.  We are getting a real tree so we can't put it up sooner. It would be up right now if I could!


Did you buy anything for yourself or others today on Black Friday? I bought some things online today. I bought a gift off Etsy, it is good to support the makers at this time of year and also they make beautiful things. I also went into Indigo and bought a couple of things. There was a bit of a line but it wasn't too bad since my boyfriend and I popped in later in the evening after going to a movie.

  2. That little mouseie is SO adorable!

    No Black Friday shopping for me, unless you count buying lunch at a hoagie shop and some food at the supermarket. LOL
