I'm thankful that my son ate the last slice of pumpkin pie, so I didn't have to. I'm also very thankful to be done with not one, but two projects that were OTN a bit longer than I would have liked.
First, my grandson, Jayden's sweater. I started it over the summer and told myself I'd have it done for school. He started kindergarten this fall and he likes to "look handsome" when he goes to school. Well, September came and went so I decided I'd have it done in time for the cooler weather. As October drew to a close, my next goal was to have it done for his birthday in November. When he came for Thanksgiving I had it wrapped with his other birthday gifts (he was 6 on the 17th)! Yea!! He really liked it, he pulled it right over what he was wearing and preceded to wear it the rest of the day, even though it was unseasonably warm here.
I also finished his sister, Ashley's shrug on Friday. I knit pretty steadily all day... when I wasn't eating leftover pie. It's a long, black, rectangle of stockinette stitch with a few rows of seed stitch on either end. I say finished because it's done except for the seaming of the arms. I'm going to do that the next time I see her so I can be sure to get the right length to the underarm.
That left me with just two projects in progress so I did what any reasonable knitter would do... I cast on some bed socks for the kids. I'm considering starting a clapotis. How many knitting days until Christmas??
