Happy Turkey Day!!

Fall in NEPA

Fall is such a pretty season. The variety of colors that the leaves change into is just beautiful. One reason why I like fall is beause I get to wear my knitted socks. To date, I have knit 21 pairs with several "singles" and also 4 pairs OTN.

1. Jaywalkers in Opal Docktorifish
2.Dragon Skin Lace in Kiogu KPM
3. Plain StSt sock in Knit Picks Dancing
4. Plain StSt w/picot edging LL Pinstripe

I've also been knitting away on this Lace Leaves Shawl in Navy Blue Paton's Grace. I dont know if I'm going to give it away yet or keep it. I am 3/4 of the way through the 2nd ball and it's knitting up pretty quickly. I must say, this is a very well written pattern and I will probaby knit several of them!

3 weeks ago, my hubby surprised me with a lap top. It's super pretty and I love it. So, you know what I had to work on right away... yup... a lap top case. I guessed with the measurements, so I hope it comes out ok.

I used Cascade 220 in grey and a purpley color and Eco Wool in that funky blue color. It should felt up really nicely. I used my tape measure to show how jumbo this bag really is.

Since today felt like a cold November day, I decided I would make it Thanksgiving in October. Why not? We all have something to be thankful for. So today, I spent 6 hours, cooking, baking and "sampling" just like it was Turkey Day.

I made a small turkey (10 lbs), stuffing (not just any stuffing, but my Mom's recipe, which is THE best), candied yams, mashed potatoes and this beautiful Squash Pie. I was hesitant to make this pie b/c Pumpkin is my all time fave.... but I don't know... this pie has won me over. Its super easy to make and definitely better than Pumpkin (hubby says so!)


Happy Knitting!!

Love your shawl. Anything with leaves seems to be just gorgeous when knitted up. And I will admit, although I've never eaten squash pie, yours does look quite delish!
