black friday



We don't really 'do' black Friday* here in the UK
though it's catching on.
Anyway I thought I would link the day with my recent makes,
which contain black.
These beauties are for my friends kids
 whom I've been making silly Christmas gifts
for a few years now.
Their tastes are on the Gothic side,
so I went for black yarn,
which I rather like,
even if it makes my eyes turn spirals like the fellow below.
Remember last years makes?
*black friday falls the day after thanksgiving.
It denotes the beginning of the Christmas holiday shopping season,
where many shops have huge promotional deals.
The 'black' name relates to businesses
recording their losses in red ink
and their gains in black.
