Thanksgivingtimes…

Wow, time sure does fly at the holidays!

Thanksgiving was small this year. Just me and my husband and our kids. I invited my friend Ashley over because her husband was out of town for work and I don’t think people should be alone during the holidays.

Luckily, my husband loves me a lot and knew I was way too busy to get any actual holiday planning done, so he ordered Thanksgiving dinner this year!

Thumbs up!

Dinner was a success!

After dinner and dessert, Ashley brought out some of her knitting that needed a little TLC. Not too long ago she had a (gasp!)…moth problem, but she also had a shawl that had a burn. Of course, about the time I was going to Google “darning”, the internet took a dump. I had to wing it.

I think I did a pretty good job.

I’m trying to get to it…

It’s been really hard to get much knitting done. I’ve had family in town and tons of stuff to do. It didn’t help that both my kids ended up spending the entire weekend with a stomach bug. About the only crafting I had done was a repair job on the turtle my niece picked up at the aquarium and baking with the fruit I got in this week’s CSA box.

I have to thank Chris Savino for getting me to learn the Henson Stitch. It sure made sewing that turtle way easy!

A letter to my Mom…

Dear Mom,

I repaired your sweater. It was kind of a pain in the ass. I am not sure what the heck this yarn is made out of, but it’s splitty and squeaky and not friends with my tiny crochet hook. I love you though, so it is done. It’ll be here when you come out to visit in a few weeks.
