Today is December 8. I’m opening Craftvent drawer # 5. Could I attempt to catch up over the weekend? Maybe. Do I care I’m now four days behind? Not really. Am I having a fantastic time with my knitting advent calendar? Absolutely!
Clue #4 indicated more yarn. It was a shorter clue than the lace section. I guess each section isn’t divided up with equal amounts of knitting. Maybe catching up is a realistic goal? (Who am I kidding? I see casting on for a new hat in my future.) I’m really enjoying the sparkly yarn from day 3. I sure hope it makes a come back.
Clue # 5 indicated more yarn. It’s a new color. A lovely icicle blue. Here’s the yarns used so far:
- Tosh Merino Light + Glitter: Color Dirty Panther. I love the glitter.
- Lorna’s Laces Shepard Sock: Color Pewter
- Tosh Merino Light: Color Danger Will Robinson
I’m enjoying my Craftvent 2018 so much, I bought us a chocolate advent calendar. The British Hubby grew up with this type of advent calendar, but not such a fancy one. This one is from a French chocolatier.
Gracie’s turn for the Santa tie. She wasn’t fussed by it. I don’t think she can feel it will all her fluff.
I suspect Day 6 will be yarn, but I’m still holding out for chocolate or a dehydrated kitten. Hope your holiday season is off to a great start.
