I was planning to post about the desserts that I made for Thanksgiving with pics and all... but I forgot to take pics! So, you will just have to imagine how yummy the brownies and cinnamon buns (from scratch!) were. I also made stuffing (delish!) and candied yams, which I can't get enough of! All in all, it was a success. Everyone prepared a dish and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Since I started working, I haven't had much time to knit, but this is what I have completed so far.

I used the same pattern back in May, but for some reason, I pretty much followed the pattern and used sz 1.5 dpn's.

These are the Jaywalker's I lost in a bet and they STILL aren't finished. This bet was back in August. They'll be done for Christmas, though.

This is a basic toe-up sock. I have already started the mate and they'll be done soon.

Look for more posts this week, I only have to work 13 hrs!! YAY!!!!!

Happy Knitting!!!

I'm Here!

And very well! I started a new job 3 weeks ago and my knitting time has been cut drastically. I barely knit anymore. But anyway, I've been participating in a lot of swaps and having fun with them. I have a ton of "secret knitting" and gifts that I'd like to post about but the people that are receiving the gifts stop by my blog, so....

Since I'll have time tomorrow, I'll post pics of my "me" knitting.

Right now, I'm making Cinnamon Buns, like 3 batches, along with 2 trays of brownies and tomorrow I will make candied yams and stuffing! Yum!!

BTW... Happy Turkey Day to you all!
