Sorry for the dark image, but this was me sneaking in a bit of early morning knitting. Since my knitting mojo is slowly coming back, I figured I better capture as much of my knitting as possible. :) So loves, how was your Thanksgiving? I hope you were surrounded by all those you love and are totally stuffed because your soul was fed. Mine was wonderful- it is never about the mass amounts of foods for me (especially this year as I am just now able to eat soft solids), but always about being thankful for the amazing family that I have.
Sock knitting always happening, repeating myself to say it is just the medicine for all ails. For me at least. :) I went through my WIP basket and had a desire to finish up these beauties. The yarn was a gift from a dear Aussie friend Julie, somehow by knitting on them it made me feel closer to her. Isn't that the best thing about yarn?
While on my mission to search Ravelry for Christmas ornament designs I somehow fell in love with the Ohra shawl and I could not resist casting one on. Despite our warm temps this holiday season, the evenings have me a little chilly and I thought how wonderful to have a shawl to wrap up in.
Then I started looking through my stash for yarn to make the Ohra shawl...my cast-on-it is kicked in thinking that I need to make some Christmas socks. See, this is why I asked you all for advice about ornaments because I can't be trusted to look for ideas because I end up knitting other things. Thank you by the way for all the great ideas- I think I have settled on gnomes.
You may tire of hearing how grateful and thankful I am for all of you. But I will still say it anyway. Your comments, prayers and good wishes are a constant companion for me that I carry around with me everyday.
Enjoy a song and have the best day today!
