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!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!
HANDS OFF MY CHEESE MAN!
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. I know what you mean about the kitchen bustle. We always go to a friend’s so I don’t cook but I do have to make 4 or 5 pies. That counts, right?
Cute mitts! Enjoy your Thanksgiving with family. Thanks for helping out my pal Cara, too! ;-)
We’re have a sort of two-fer this year. I am hosting on Thanksgiving day for the mom, a sister, and my brother. Mom is hosting the day-after for a different sister… and me, I guess. Well, and the families that belong to each.
I am going Italian for my portion of the program. At first, I was going to use ground turkey in my lasagna in an attempt to at least give a nod to the pilgrims. But no. Michael said to make it the way it’s supposed to be (because I make the best… or something like that). So there you go. We’re having minestrone soup, lasagna, ensalade caprese, some bread… and (here’s my nod) zucca e aranci torta (pumpkin & orange tart).
You’ve got the itch to cook now, don’t you?
Or your stomach is growling. (My stomach is growling.)
P.S. What’s this with the CHEESE?
P.P.S. Did Kay get her square? She told me she was going to sit on the two of you, if necessary.
I miss the bustling, too, actually. We’re having a tiny thanksgiving with just the 3 of us, this year.
Gorgeous, *gorgeous* mitts. Enjoy your long weekend!
Have a great Thanksgiving!
The fingerless gloves are pretty, but aren’t the ruffles annoying for doing things? (Isn’t being able to do things the point for not having the fingers on?)
Hooray for stashbusting!
Hooray for fingerless gloves and warm hands!
Those are pretty! I missed reading, just way to busy these days. I’m getting cranky over missing out on all the latest.
Love the mitts! Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.
