Way too late to ship...

So, I'm a little behind on the Holiday Knitting, given that I'll probably mail the box to my nieces & nephews on or about December 23 - it's not getting there in time. Knitting still must be finished (and honestly - it may actually happen after Christmas).

I refuse to buy them knitted things, since much of the last year has been dedicated to knitting cool little braided ball hideyplaces, facecloths and washcloths, and strange little ornaments.

But you may not have my qualms (or strange mental investment in washcloths)... in which case, I present to you the first commercial referencing knitting in the US that didn't actually make my skin crawl (or make me fire off a nasty letter or six to the company/ies responsible):

Assuming I do actually get everything finished, I'm definitely posting pics before I send them out. Because nothing will guarantee online avoidance like the phrase "your aunt's knitting blog" - they'll never see 'em. Also, the cute yarncat in the commercial? WANT!


  1. Oh my god, I love this commercial! The first time I saw it was with my dad, and he says "What the f*** drugs were they on when they made this commercial?", and I kept saying "Dad, I need a yarn-cat!" He now thinks that I'm insane.

  2. I know, right? I want a Yarn Cat, too!!
