Well, that little break was nice. My Thanksgiving holiday was lovely, just as I had hoped. We spent lots of time at home enjoying each other's company (and eating too much!). Thinking back, I don't quite remember what we did, all the days blended together. But I do feel rested, so that's a good thing.
One of my favorite events of the past few days was my outing with Lily on Saturday. We went fabric shopping, had lunch, then visited our local yarn shop. It was her first time. I have a little fiber lover on my hands for sure. It was so funny hearing her say "that's awesome!" about the yarn. She had no idea that a place like that existed. I think she was most impressed with the ladies sitting around knitting. We hit the sale room and each picked up some yarn for a small project.
When I learned to knit, I first knit a scarf, then jumped right in on sweaters. I skipped over the little projects, but now I feel like revisiting them. I didn't plan to, but I'm making a scarf. I may keep it for myself, or not. This yarn is pretty! I wish I had saved the tag...all I know is that it's Noro.
I suppose my break was quite knit heavy. Even before I started the scarf, I totally abandoned my whisper (the cuff is still waiting) and jumped in on tea leaves. I love knitting this style of sweater. It's very similar to the numerous baby sweaters I've made, so it's fun to be making a grown up version.
Oh, I did manage to finish my skirt (enough) to wear for Thanksgiving, but didn't get any decent photos of myself wearing it. I'll save that for another day...once I actually finish it :-)
Have a great week, friends - be grateful you don't have a 3 yr old giving your dog a haircut!
