Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends.

I’m thankful for my comfortable life.

I’m thankful for some very lucky breaks in life.

I’m thankful that my home did not get destroyed by fire last week.

And I’m very thankful for family and all my friends (both real and imaginary)!

Lucy sez:

I’ll be thankful if Momma gets off the computer and gets to roasting that turkey!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to all Americans!

    Hope Lucy enjoys the turkey!

  5. I’m thankful for all the knit bloggers like you who are so generous with their time and creativity. Happy American Thanksgiving!

    I am thankful for good friends and family, though I’m worried about my mom who lost her baby Ragdoll kitty a year ago.

  9. Happy Thanksgiving to you & Lucy from the “house of Mouse”.

  15. Happy thanksgiving to you and Lucy. Gordo the Collie Puppy is being driven crazy by the smells of dinner cooking, Lucy, so getting your wish may not make you as happy as you think.

    I hope that everyone, including people who aren’t celebrating this US holiday, has a wonderful day. You don’t need an official holiday to remember the people you love and the good things in your life. Just do it!

    Happy THanksgiving to you, the KOARC and Lucy.
    And to the americans reading this blog!
    I’m grateful for this virtual community.

  28. Hey…we’re not “imaginary” friends! We’re real friends, just “virtual”. Unless, um, you meant some other ‘friends’ you were thankful for…like the Queen Mum, or little Janey who needs her own seat at the table, though nobody but you can see her. Or a 6′ 3.5″ white rabbit…but the jury’s still out on that one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hope your T’day and its feast were supoib. Now on to the really good stuff—turkey sammiches!

  29. Happy Thanksgiving!

  30. Happy Thanksgiving Wendy & Lucy! I’m thankful the inspiration and information on your blog.

  31. Wendy darling – Would you please be a dear and share the Coraline sweater pattern?

  32. An extraordinarily extraordinary photo of Lucy. I’m thankful, among dozens of other things, for your highly entertaining blog. Thank you for sharing part of your and Lucy’s life with us.

  33. I’m thankful for my family, community, and nation and of course, for my plurky-ravelous friends – including you & La Diva Lucy…..let the Holiday season begin…..ACK – did I say that out loud?

  34. Happy Thanksgiving Wendy and Lucy. I hope it was great.
    I have a question about toe proportions. I have really long toes and I make my toes long(only doing repeats every other row or every third row for the entire toe). From the side when the sock is on the proportions look good to me, but sometimes I think the toe looks too long when looking straight down at my foot. Most sock patterns have too short a toe and the pattern of the sock fall in the middle of the length of my toes. Your patterns seem more well proportioned than a lot of patterns I have looked at. However, I still make the toe longer, even on your patterns. I guess I really haven’t asked a question yet. I am mostly just mistified why the toes on most sock patterns(not yours) seem so short. Are the designers just making it fit their toes? Maybe this was just a rant instead of a question. I hope you are not rolling your eyes.

  35. Happy Thanksgiving Wendy and Lucy!! I’m thankful for your friendship and all of the other knitters out there in cyberworld! My knitting has reached new heights because of all of you. ๐Ÿ™‚
