My dad is a Christmas fanatic. It’s like HIS holiday and he is about the closest thing to a real life Santa as I have met. He is pretty much in charge of our family Christmas. But this year he needed a little help. He and mom have had a lot of medical appointments all winter and then they were out of town for 10 day in California. So he let me take the reigns of Christmas shopping because there was no way he could be done before Christmas.
And I did a knitter proud. I have been wanting the ChiaoGoo shorties in the sock needles for over a year. I have seen them all over the blogs and YouTube podcasts and they looked right up my alley. I knit a lot of socks and hats and it would nice to have interchangeable to fit whatever my gauge needs are. So I went stalking the internet for a set…and I found a sale! I found HelloWeCraft on Etsy was having a sale before Christmas where the sets were 20% off and FREE SHIPPING!
So I managed to snag both the sock set and the regular set without breaking my budget. There weren’t very many left and I might have cart jacked someone. Sorry not sorry! I thus far taken them out to play with all the parts but haven’t actually used them yet. But just look at what they came with!!
I’m thinking I will use the larger needles as a carrot to finish my Weekender so I can use the small circumference to knit my sleeves without needing double points!
Did Santa bring you anything knitting related?
P.S. Santa brought my dad a new pellet grill after his 20 year old gas grill tried to burn down his porch. So Dad had a pretty good Christmas too 🙂
