My current work in progress:

1. Woodfords, designed by Elizabeth Doherty, knit from Madelinetosh Merino Light in the "paper" colorway on U.S. size 3, 5, and 7 needles.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

Happy Thanksgiving

It’s a very foggy day here — and seems to be getting foggier by the minute!

In a couple of hours I’ll kick into Thanksgiving dinner preparation mode, but I wanted to stop by and wish you all a happy Thanksgiving — or a good Thursday, which ever applies.

Things I’m thankful for:

  • I have a good job and a comfortable home. While neither are perfect, I am very fortunate that I really don’t need anything.
  • The contact lenses the eye doctor gave me yesterday to try out are much better than the ones I had been using for the past year. Yay for good vision!
  • I did most of the Thanksgiving prep yesterday so I can relax and have fun for a good part of today.
  • Lucy. It’s amazing how much joy one small kitty can bring to my life.
  • Every knitter who has bought and enjoyed “Socks From the Toe Up.”
  • My amazing circle of friends, both “imaginary” and real. I did a lot of traveling in 2009 in support of my book and every place I went, there were friends to meet me at the train station or airport. You all have no idea how much this means to a girl who does not travel well.

Lack of Knitting Content

There has been a decided lack of current knitting progress here lately, have you noticed? That’s because I’ve been doing some stealth knitting this week.

I did start my second Diamond Lace sock — see?

That’s what it looked like on Sunday, and that’s what it looks like today. But I ought to be able to return to it later today.

In other news, my car had an important milestone today.

And I visited the eye doctor this morning and my eyes are still dilated. Makes it difficult to blog, so I’ll sign off with a photo of Miss Lucy:

She is obviously thinking about turkey.

Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow to everyone who celebrates!
