Our Thanksgiving was fabulous! On Wednesday my cousin came to spend the night, we cooked, and shopped and talked… then she fell asleep while we were all watching Elf (after the amazing grilly salad Byron made us!) and I finally got to knit. I’m knitting the Calligraphy Cardigan, by Hannah Fettig. I dyed three skeins in the light aqua and another 6 skeins in the turquoise color. I had started the increases but I didn’t like how my “M1’s” were looking so I ripped back and tried a Kfb. I like the way it looks better, but I probably should have also changed the ripping count too so it matches a bit… hindsight.
Anyway, then Thursday we ate way too much lunch at my Mom & Dad’s house. Every once in a while there will be an odd family holiday where there aren’t any children. This year, even my “baby” cousin is 21… and brought the beer! Around our Thanksgiving table were various aunts and uncles and cousins and children and moms and dads and grandmothers and husbands and wives I am very thankful for each and every one of them. I probably wouldn’t be who I am if they weren’t who they are.
I hope every one of you had a terrific day and now begins the rush for Christmas!
