FO Friday 117 and a Candy Skein treat!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday and also Merry Christmas (early) if you celebrate! I'm going to try and post before Christmas, but in case I don't I wanted to make sure to send my well wishes. I hope you have a safe holiday and get all of the wonderful things you hoped Santa would bring you.

Speaking of gifts, I'm still working on my husband's socks. Keep your fingers crossed as I have to finish them by tonight. He has the weekend and Christmas Eve off, so this will be the last time I'll be able to work on them in secret. I have a few inches left before I start to decrease the toe. I'm hoping I can crush through it today but please send me your good knitting vibes.

I can't wait to finish the socks so I can focus on my cross stitch and finishing a few more projects before the new year begins.

Speaking of the New Year, the podcast Yarniacs (one of my favorite knitting podcasts out there!) is having a self indulgent KAL starting January 1st. The idea is to cast on a project for yourself the first of the year, after working on holiday presents for the past several weeks.  I'll be playing along, casting on a Color Affection shawl in a new Candy Skein yarn base that I'll announce soon. Speaking of Candy Skein, if you listen to the newest Yarniacs podcast (episode number 25) you will hear that not only will I be donating a prize for the KAL, but I also have a Yarniacs exclusive Candy Skein coupon! All you have to do is listen to the podcast to hear the coupon code and receive 15% off of all Candy Skein yarn through the end of January. The coupon can be used as many time as you order throughout the life of the coupon! How is that for a little self indulgence??!!

Again, happy holidays!
