Even though the day was busy with activity here, it was enjoyable just the same. Don't you just love the smells of Thanksgiving? MMM...pumpkin pie, apple cider and roasting turkey. YUM! Hard to believe we will be moving on to that next big holiday in 4 short weeks. Yikes!
Scottish Lamb Jean came up with her family to spend the holiday with her NH relatives and we managed to squeeze in some visiting time with her as well. Jean made the beautiful silver pendant especially for me....isn't it wonderful? On the flip side is a picture of our little Skyy-baby! Thanks Jean!
I was thrilled to meet, Lucky the newest 4 legged member of Jean's family. What a dear sweet dog he is and so lucky that he was rescued from the puppy mill that he nearly died in. Go take a look at the blog that Jean put together for him.....too cute!
...and a little knitting....
Remember the little pumpkin hats that I made for the Fryeburg Fair? Well, this summer when I was working on them, Ashley's boyfriend, Brian had mentioned to her that he would love to have one for himself.
I had to chuckle as not too many adults have inquired about having one made...in fact not a one has, but Brian really wanted one, so on the needles it went. This was his birthday/Thanksgiving gift :-)
He promises that he is going to wear it hiking, so if you see a pumkpin headed hiker, say Hi!
All in all other than Thanksgiving Day, it was a pretty quiet weekend here. My MIL was here visiting, so alot of time was spent sitting and talking, which gave me time to work on Bee.
I am working on the hive portion and really enjoy the rhythm of this lace. Even though the lace is worked on both the knit side and the purl side, I have found Bee easy to follow along. It is a treat working with pure merino yarn instead of sock yarn for a change.........an enjoyable knit all around!
The yarn that she chose is some handspun from some CMF roving that I received last year in a swap. While pink is not my color, Courtney claimed it the minute she saw the roving....so hers it shall be!
I think I have a few things to keep me busy... :-)
