thank you for all your kind comments about those fingerless gloves! They are truly a quick knit and would make a wonderful gift. As a matter of fact, I have another pair in progress, but this time I am using yarn from the stash and some is even left over! I am also mulling over making a matching headband. To be perfectly honest, I think the beaded yarn makes a nicer ruffle, but the mohair I am using is great and pretty too. and it’s LEFTOVERS! And the happy-good feeling of using stash/leftover can’t be beat!
I spent yesterday in Secaucus. Cara had sent out a bat signal for Prize Patrol help – Kay and I answered the call. Kay brought her camera, so check her site for any photos. Last year there was a fracas over Bakelite needles (see July 11th entry). Neither of us won. This year we managed to maintain our dignity. I cannot account for the how or why. There was certainly an abundance of riches!
D#1 is driving home today for the Thanksgiving break. We are having our holiday dinner at my MiL’s house, so things have been quiet in my kitchen. This is alternately sad and thrilling! It’s nice to have stillness while everyone else is bustling. But I kind of miss the bustling …. only kind of!
