I am thankful for...

My family
My boyfriend
My friends
My pets

Yesterday overall was a wonderful day. First, I ate at my grandmother's house, and then later I went to my boyfriend's house to eat with his family.

Today was the big shopping day... That I did not participate in. For the past four years my aunt and I have gotten up to go shopping but this year I just didn't have the energy! She took my younger sister instead.

I am...

What kind of yarn are you?

You are Mohair.You are a warm and fuzzy type who works well with others, doing your share without being too weighty. You can be stubborn and absolutely refuse to change your position once it is set, but that's okay since you are good at covering up your mistakes.

Check out this website!

I know, it has nothing to do with knitting, but I think it would be something nice to do for the holidays. Its a Holiday Card Project! It won't cost much money or time, depending on how many you wish to send. The website will explain everything about the project. Basically, you send cards, hand-made or store bought, to the address provided and they send the cards to sick hospitol patients. They could be terminally ill, or just in the hopitol for a little while.

I think it would be totally sweet to recieve a card filled with holiday cheer while I was sick in the hospitol. Check out the site and send a card or two! ^_^

Now, as for my knitting, I started a scarf for myself... I am using the pattern from November 29 in the Knitting Pattern a Day calendar. Its called "Holiday Magic Scarf". Just a little project to use some of the stash. Hehe. I will post photos of it when I finish. If I like it enough, I might even make a few as gifts!

Current WIPs

I am working on a simple garter stitch scarf for myself. I am using a red/orange eyelash yarn held with a brown worsted weight yarn. It looks very fall-y. I love it. I think it will be finished within the next few days, so I can show you all how it looks.

Here is a rib scarf I am working on for a friend... I am not sure if it is supposed to look like this. Anyone?

Lots of finished items...

I have been negleting the blog! I apologize very sincerely... Not that it has gotten very exciting yet.

I have finished many scarves in the month of October. I promise to post photos by Monday! I am sticking to scarves this year as Christmas gifts. At least the knit gifts. I don't want to have too many WIPs and then come Christmas I realize that they are still... WIPs... So that is the deal with that.
