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!)
