Gobble,Gobble

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!! I LOVE the holidays and this time of year. I love the coziness, the comfort foods and getting together with my family and friends. I am so excited, I LOVE cooking for the holidays and Thanksgiving is one of my FAVORITES!! I will be starting the shindig beginnings this afternoon WOOT WOOT, then my house will smell heavenly all day and all night!!

I have also been pretty busy making the fingerless mitts for people...here are some of the ones that have occupied my time ::::the one on the right is for a man, my husband is showing it off for me. It is knitted out of 100% merino and is sooooooooooo soft. I LOVE it. The one on the right is out of the Wool of the Andes from KnitPicks and I added some cute fun fur. I like the Wool of the Andes but to be honest, I haven't worked as much with that as I have say Lorna Laces or Briar Rose. It will be hard to beat Briar Rose and when I don't have enough of my own handspun, then I usually turn to that first then if it doesn't suit the project, I go hunting elsewhere. These next two beauties are also gorgeous. The one on the right is out of the ever classic Noro Silk Garden with a little novelty yarn added for glitz and glam LOL. The recipient is a hugh school gal so ya know......the one on the right is soooooooooo soft, it's like butta I tell ya!! It is out of Cherry Tree Hill Possum!! I know, I am NOT a fan of Cherry Tree Hill, not for any particular reason mind you, it's just not my cup of tea but this possum of theirs OOOHHHLALA!!! I believe they no longer carry it and that's a shame, it is AWSOME and so soft! I actually have enough left to make myself a pair out of this and that is exactly what I am gonna do. The remainder goes into my covetted stash that I use for making things for myself. I only have like 3 hanks of yarn in it LOL 2 of which are handspun LOL.

Well, there ya have it. That's what's been occupying my time...well, that and taking care of my two gobblers LOL which blogger won't let me post a picture of UGH, Blogger drives me nuts!! Sometimes it will post, others nope, no dice!! Anyways...Happy Thanksgiving to all and thanks for reading !!
