Darnathon Update + Craftsy Sale!

Today's FO Friday will be a little different, since I technically don't have any FO's to show off! I do, however, have a newly-restored Featherweight Cardigan. I knit this sweater all the way back in 2009 (it doesn't seem like it was that long ago!) and in the last year or so, noticed a few small holes in the sweater sleeves. I set it aside for repairs, and, well....you know what happened!

Meanwhile, I plan on avoiding the insanity of Black Friday like the plague today. I'm sure I'm not the only on who rather be knitting! I'm more of a Cyber Monday person myself, as I prefer to do nearly all of my shopping (no matter what day it is) from the comfort of my own home while wearing pajamas.

Fellow pajama shoppers, you are in luck! From 11/23-11/26, Craftsy is running its Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale and all classes are being offered at $19.99 or less! I have to say, I'm a serial class-taker at Craftsy. Just this year alone, I have expanded my skill-set in so many ways by taking these well-done, informative classes....in my pajamas! Now is a great time to get a jump on your crafty new year's resolutions. Once you sign up, you have lifetime access, so even though you might be too busy to start a class right now, you'll be mighty glad you signed up for them come January. Besides knitting and crochet class offerings, there are plenty of interesting options in sewing, paper crafts, jewelry-making, food craft and more (view all Craftsy classes here).

My own personal kryptonite, of course, are the ever-changing Craftsy yarn deals - and now there are tons of other goodies such as books and kitsClick here to be tempted by their Thanksgiving Sale!
While I'm sharing enabling, I should probably mention that one of my favorite online yarn shops (who also happens to be a client, full disclosure!) is having a big 'ol sale through November 26! Doodlebug Yarn is my source for Malabrigo, The Fibre Company, Swan's Island and lots of cool indie dyers, too. Click here to explore, because everything is on sale (and there are some killer closeouts, too). I caved and bought another skein of Tundra and snapped up the last skein of the Swan's Island limited-edition colorway (Sugar Maple) in worsted weight. I realize that I have very little self-control when it comes to yarn...but there are worse things I could be spending my money on, right?
