Thanksgiving Blessings and Black Friday Splurges

Yesterday was a day of giving thanks and eating lots of delicious food! I am so thankful that Lars and I were able to spend time with both his family and mine. We spent the first half of the day at my grandma’s house where we enjoyed good company, a yummy late lunch/early dinner, and a slice of pie. Later in the evening, we headed over to Lars’s parent’s house. We enjoyed some more good company and I had three more small slices of pie. Yes, I ate 4 slices of pie in one day, and I have no regrets! Overall, yesterday was a great reminder that we have so much to be thankful for. Lars and I have been blessed with wonderful families and an overabundance of delicious and diverse foods.

Today is Black Friday. I am too lazy to actually go out shopping, but I did do a little online shopping at https://hobbii.com/yarn. I have seen Hobbii Yarn advertised many times on Facebook and Instagram and have often been very tempted by their beautiful yarn. But, I have so much yarn. Though likely not the largest, my yarn stash is fairly big. I certainly do not need any more yarn at the moment! But… It came to my attention that Hobbii Yarn was having a big Black Friday sale and I decided it wouldn’t do any harm to take a look… :/ I looked, I loved, I wanted! But, I reasoned with myself yet again and I didn’t buy anything. A little while later, Lars was ordering some tools from a Black Friday sale that had caught his attention. I sweetly asked him if I could buy a little something for myself. Being the sweet husband that he is, he consented to my request and back to Hobbii.com I went! I ordered 8 skeins of various yarns to make a little something for myself and also for some gift projects. I also ordered a cute faux fur pompom for a knitter-friend. And to top it all off I got a free row counter and a free set of cable needles ( You can never have too many, I lose them all the time)! For all that, I spent under $45. I’m not sure how long the sale is running, but I encourage my fellow yarn-crafters to check it out!

Now for the really hard part: Waiting. Shipping is 5-10 days. I’ve gotten too used to Amazon Prime, so this won’t be easy. 😅 Stay tuned for a review post! I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving. ❤ Let me know what you’re especially thankful for this year in the comments. Thanks for reading!
