Happy Thanksgiving - Everyone!
It's early morning here, and I'm just enjoying the quiet stillness before the busy day begins. Sipping piping hot Spiced Gingerbread coffee in my favorite mug. Of course I just had to accompany it with some crusty bread toasted to a golden brown, topped with some yummy jam.
Simply delicious on this still - dark - cold - holiday morning.
On the knitting front, I have been puffing away on the Hexi's for the Beekeeper's Quilt.
These particular puffies have been sent off to Hope Lives. There, they will join other puffs that were donated to be knitted into a charity blanket that will be auctioned off. I sent in a colorful variety of handspun and commercial puffs.
As the weather gets colder, my thoughts turn to knitted scarfs, hats, mitts, and cozy slippers. So.. the other day I went stash diving. Into the Wool Cave I went -on a quest for the perfect handspun to knit a warm fluffy scarf. I found a warm cinnamon brown fine wool with nubby flecks of color (a two-ply bulky wt. handspun). I think this will look yummy knitted up into a nice warm scarf. Now, I just have to select a perfect pattern. I just love knitting and spinning this time of year.
On to the finished Knits. The Fresco Basket Whip Cowl is finished! What a fast knit. Really some great TV knitting. You know that busy work you like to do in front of the TV, but not so complicated you can't get into the movie because you're too busy counting lace repeats. This will make a great Christmas present.
Well.. it is just starting to get light here, and soon the preparations for the busy day ahead - will begin.
Hope Everyone has a great Holiday!
