In England we refer to Candy as Sweets. "Please Mummy, can I please go to the Sweet Shop?"
The holidays always gets my sweet tooth salivating. I spend quite a bit of money stocking up on some of my favorite British sweets (as well as American. When it comes to sweets/candy, I do not discriminate). Some of the holiday necessities include: Box of Maltezers, Box of Roses Chocolates, Chocolate Eclairs, Lots of Flakes, Cadbury Milk Tray, Twiglets (okay not a sweet, but still a snack must have for all Holly Jolly Brits!), Quality Street Chocolates, .... okay, the list could go on and on (good job, I'm married to a dentist).
In keeping with the "Sweet" theme of this post I dug in the stash to see what would tie in nicely for a Thanksgiving Giveaway.
How about some Sundara Sock Yarn in Creamy Toffee?! This yarn is delicious, just like the name implies. I love knitting with this yarn. You will too!
Want some Creamy Toffee?
Just leave a comment with what your favorite holiday sweet is and what you'd like to make with this sweet yarn.
Get a second entry if you link this on your blog (just leave a second comment leaving the link to your blog).
Winner will be picked on Sunday at 8pm central time and posted on the blog.
In the meantime, have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Whether you live in the USA or elsewhere in the world, take time to pause and be grateful for all you have.
I'm grateful to the Cute Guy, wonderful kids, true friends, a strong faith .... many other things not forgetting sweets, yarn, and something to be passionate about like knitting.
