Time once again for the local holiday gift fairs. Some were actually last weekend, so I’ve already missed out on some shopping opportunities. Of course, I have shopping done for everyone but mom. Not a clue what to get her. Not clue one.

This shopping ahead isn’t always a good thing. I found a great white elephant gift for the holiday party at work. Now we aren’t having a party. Bought the gift two months ago so now cannot return it. Ah well, live and learn and lose $6.

Again with the great yarn shop names!

Recycled Lamb is having their 28th Annual After Thanksgiving Sale today through Sunday. They are one of the few local shops that is open on Sunday, which is always helpful to me. You never know when the urge to indulge in fiber will show up; inconvenient if it happens on a day the high-end independent yarn shops are closed. 10% off all yarn, plus discounts on weaving supplies, pattern books, and more.

23 days and counting. Are your handmade gifts done? Started? Mine aren’t, in case you’re curious.
