In Progress

OK. First I forgot to add what yarn I used for the squirrel dishcloth. It is a really nice yarn and it was probably a little wasteful to use it for this project, but I am glad I did or I wouldn't have known how soft it was. It is Luna from Cacade Yarns and is 100% Peruvian Cotton. It is washable and dryable and very nice to knit with. This yarn was one of the yarns we got in our goodie bag from Knitting Camp. I just found a pattern for Pocket Book Slippers on Hakucho's Blog that I think will go nicely with this yarn. Gift for next year possibly???

This is the hat for DS#1 in progress. I love it and more importantly, I think my son will like it :o) My DH has asked for one in the same colorway so I need to go back to my LYS and ask how to make this a wee bit bigger. This is turning out to be a very quick knit. It is easy and fun and the way the color changes is great to watch. I can't wait to finish this one and start the next in the other colorway!
This is a progress shot of DS#2's sweater. It is at the point where I can start the neck shaping. This is also a fun and quick knit. It is hard to quit knitting when I get to change colors every two rows........"I'll just quit after the next color change...well maybe the next.....just one more" :o)!

Off to fix the lunches for the kids for school today and then to start preparations for our big Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow night! That's right, a few days early. We always celebrate Thanksgiving the Saturday before Thanksgiving. More of the family can come (less conflicts) which makes for a GREAT time. It is always here at our home and I usually feel relatively under control until right about now when the list of things to do is getting longer and I don't seem to be making any headway! It all gets done in the end and we all have fun so no worries!

Our small home shouldn't have any trouble at all in hosting 33 people - HAH!!
