Did you know that today happens to be "International Craft Day"? Well...'international' may be a stretch. Truth be told, it's not even "National Craft Day"...but it is the first Sunday after Thanksgiving, which means it is "Craft Day" in our household!
When Joe and I were just dating, I taught him how to knit on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. The two of us sat all day working on our projects. By the end of the day, Joe had a very tightly-knit pot holder(which never actually made its way off the needles). At the time, we jokingly called the day "Craft Day", and have acknowledged this day as a holiday ever since!
Today marks the sixth annual Craft Day and crafts are certainly a'plenty here! Besides working on slippers, I will be using the oatmeal colored yarn above to work on my next pattern. In case you were wondering, the yarn is Blue Sky Alpaca Bulky in Porcupine. Joe plans on expanding his knitting repertoire by learning how to knit cables. This way he will be able to test knit my new pattern- what fun!
I realize that I should have given a head's up to my readers beforehand to announce Craft Day, but at least I didn't let the day go by without posting! So today it's me, Joe, warm mugs of Chai tea, a fire, the rain, and knitting- perfect!
