It was a Great Thanksgiving

I really had a great Thanksgiving, especially since I had quit my job.  It  just wasn’t working out for me and I was having blood pressure issues.  So, I guess my body was telling me to take time to smell the roses and stay home.  I am enjoying it immensely. I get to do what I want (knit and read) and what I am really looking forward to is sitting at home and watch it snow.  I won’t have to worry if I should stay home or go into work.

I have been knitting.  I finished the November Mid Month Dishcloth KAL.  The pattern is called Fire N Ice by Janet Nogle.  I used Peaches and Crème yarn in Premium Passion and Delft Blue with a size 6 needle.  This was a fun knit and it turned out really nice.

I also completed the Purl Ridge Scarf.  It’s a scarf that is knit in the round. The pattern is by Stephen West.  I really like his designs.  I used a size 8 needle with Madelinetosh dk yarn in the oxblood color way.

I really enjoy knitting cowls, so I bought yarn to make more.  I got Rowan Lima in a grey and purple color way.

Rowan Drift in a grey color way.  I think I am on a grey kick.

Also, Araucania Panguipulli yarn to make a Mobius scarf in a blue/teal color way.

And I bought more Baby Ull yarn by Dale of Norway to get ready to knit more calendar scarves.  I still have to block the last one I knit and will have to post a picture once it’s blocked.  I got a green color (9013)

and a grey color (0007).

I have much knitting to keep me busy during the winter months don’t I?
