I walked away pretty light this year. I purchased an alligator scarf kit from Morehouse and 5 skeins of natural colored wool from Maple Creek Farms.
The alligator was cast on immediately after walking in the door on Saturday night. It's been a really fun knit so far. So simple, yet so clever!
I did manage to finish my slip stitch jacket (well, it just needs hooks), but it was a bit too warm to wear so it stayed home. Grannie #2 filled in instead. And speaking of the slip stitch jacket, can you believe I had to make one more emergency trip to Knitty City on Thursday to finish it up! So the grand total was 4 extra skeins! How could this be considering I was right on gauge? I'm not quite sure. Maybe the company might be able to help me out on that one.
