Thanks...

Well, I didn't want Thanksgiving to wrap up with out stating what I'm thankful for...

Of course I'm thankful for all the usual stuff, the handsome guy, the job I love (most days) the comfy place to live, food in my belly etc, etc...

But I'm also thankful for.......the terrific Mom who loves me enough to sew up my knitting projects. Yep the cardi is done - not a very exciting picture - sorry - just not up to modeling lately. Anyway, Mom very kindly (after MUCH whining on my part) set in the sleeves and finished seaming it for me. She's the best.

It's nice and comfy and cozy and I have it on over my pajamas right now.

Well, first I had to do a little extraction.....Leave a hand knit lying around for two seconds around here and it's claimed.

In other knitting news, I've finished another row on the crackghan (it's a whopping 13.5 inches long now), knit another ball and a bit on the sloppy sweater, and started a baby blanket for a friend's sister who is due in January.

And there are still a few hours left to take advantage of the sale over at the Wandering Cat Yarns (see sidebar for link) - get 10 per cent off yarn or half-price shipping... which ever is greater.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

The cardi looks great! I wish my mother knit. My cats do the same thing with articles of clothing or whatever usually in general.

Happy Thanksgiving!
