Black Friday Craziness

Ah, Black Friday. My least favorite day to be out in the world. You won't find me shopping today, unless it's for groceries. Insane crowds and fistfights over discounted crap just isn't my scene, which I know seems strange since I am obsessed with getting got deals on nearly everything I buy. I'd prefer to shop online as a general rule, and most places are doing Black Friday deals online, too - in fact, many places have been doing them all week, which is just ridiculous if you ask me. What's to stop retailers from making Black Friday a monthlong festival of pain next year?!

Anyway, op-ed piece aside, there are some Black Friday sales I've been looking forward to, such as the annual Craftsy Yarn and Fabric sale - up to 80% off from 11/27-12/2!. There are lots of yarn and classes on sale this weekend, and I just noticed a new product: The Side Swipe Sock kit featuring my pattern and Lorna's Laces Solemate Yarn! It's currently a steal at 40% off, and you can choose from several colorways, too!

I got an email about a random Black Friday sale (today only) at Eat. Sleep. Knit. - basically, you would find out what kind of discount you'd get after checking out! The discounts ranged from 10% to 100%, so I figured it was worth trying my luck. I bought two skeins of Tough Love Sock and saved 20% on my order! I was pretty pleased with that - that's about ten bucks off. My knitting pal Julie also got 20% off her order, so the odds seem pretty good to receive a discount above 10%. 

Last but not least, I'm still offering FREE shipping on most items in my Etsy Shop and discounted shipping on everything else! Click here to check it out!
