3 Days and a Wake-Up

Why do they call it Black Friday anyway???? Somehow it sounds grim to me and perhaps this year it will be grim to retailers as well. Another reason to be 100% hand-made for the holidays!

With Thanksgiving behind us all now, it must be almost time for Knitting Contrisstmas 2008!!! I am SO excited I can't stand it! SO, three days and a wake-up until December 1st, the kickoff of this years star studded event----- creative 'celebs', a recipe or two, and some great ideas for the holidays.

THE Norah Gaughan returns along with Suzan from Knit Cafe, Martha Sacco from Green Mountain Knitting Bags, Cirilia Rose, Melissa Morgan-Oakes, Kate Gilbert, Marta McCall, Lisa Boyer (Dorky Quilts), Knitterella, Valori Wells, Ivonne from Cream Puffs in Venice, Mrs. Lear from The Runcible Bin, Sylvie from Chez Plum, Cat Bordhi, Iris from ArtYarns, Cindy Taylor Oates, Bari J, Ysolda, Joanna from Fig Tree--- and MORE!

Don't miss a second--------- (like you even would!!!)

I was thinking the same thing this morning; Black Friday sounds terribly grim. And what could people possibly need to buy that badly, after the way we shop all year?
You and your knitters have a fun holiday season. ;-) I've got two left hands when it comes to yarn and big needles. :-(

Im a decent economy, "Black Friday" is supposed to be the day that retailers go "into the black" for the year. I NEVER shop on Black Friday, it's too crazy out there.

Yeah- no Black Friday for me. Too many years in retail- I'm scarred for life!

Can't wait for the new interviews!

I'm breaking out into a sweat as we speak, I'm so excited. I can't wait until Monday. (Who would have thought a Monday would be so appealing)
