Happy Thanksgiving Back!*
November 22, 2009 § 7 Comments
Since we are joining friends for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, we decided to make our own Turkey Dinner at home tonight. It just seems like a necessary part of the season to have left-over turkey in the fridge and freezer. We like to make Turkey Tetrazzini and Turkey & Rice Soup throughout the winter. We lit a fire. And I dug out an old knitting project. Aaaaaaah…. a perfect day!
I’ve been trying to work on my quilting UFO’s but it’s been a struggle. I’m not sure that I am going to be able to meet my goal of 6 done by the end of the year. We shall see. But I have finished a couple of pairs of socks. Since there was so much yarn acquisition from the Sock Summit back in August, I thought I should attempt to knit a pair of socks each month. So far so good.
Gary’s Chai socks above were finished in October. He likes his socks Plain Jane. The yarn is from Frog Creek Fibers and the color is Chai. He loves the color! He says it reminds him of autumn.
These socks were finished for September. The pattern is Mad Color Weave by Tina Lorin. And the yarn is from Enchanted Knoll, color Treasure Chest. I’ve been working on the Through the Loops Socktoberfest Mystery Sock for November. I just have a toe to finish!
Let’s cross our fingers and maybe we shall see some quilting crossing the finish line. I’m ready to sew the binding on a Block-of-the-Month quilt for a Christmas gift. It’s not a languishing UFO, but an unfinished project none-the-less. How are your UFO’s doing?
*line from “You’ve Got Mail”. Kathleen Kelly is in Zabar’s in the cash only line and Rose, the cashier says, “Happy Thanksgiving back”. We had to break out the movie and watch while eating our Turkey Dinner. There are just too many good one-liners in that movie! Another one of my favorites is near the beginning. George says that “The Internet is just another way to be rejected my women.” Or another time he says, “I’m going to the Nut Shop where it’s fun!”
