We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this week. It was so nice to be able to spend 4 days with family and friends. Being off from work was really nice too. The only downside to the holiday was forgetting my camera at home, so no pictures this year. But I can assure you that the food looked as good as it tasted.
I was also able to do quite a bit of knitting over the holiday. I made good progress on my sweater. I now have the stitches for the sleeves on scrap yarn, and am working on the lace body of the sweater. It’s a pretty easy pattern to knit, however I had to go and make it a little more challenging. I’m doing two colors. The lace in a variegated purple and the band in a solid purple. It seemed like a good idea at the time. however I have sense discovered the challenge of working with three balls of yarn at the same time. It’s going to knit up a little slower than it would have if I had stayed with just one color yarn. A mental note I filed for the next sweater I make from this pattern.
I decided to add a second page to my blog. Dishcloth mania is a challenge I have made for myself in an effort to knit up a lot of the cotton yarn I have in my stash. I will keep a tally and post pictures of the completed dishcloths. I also added a section on the side to show what I have on my needles. I plan to add a page to post pictures of completed projects as I finish them.
