Giving Thanks

Today, we celebrate Thanksgiving in the US!

I am thankful for my wonderful family, for the house we live in and the food we eat. I am thankful for dear friends and acquaintances, both those I know in the flesh and those I know through the internet. And I am thankful that my work is something I love to do. There are so many other things, like the amazing person the cosmos threw in my way yesterday...and I am thankful for all of you who come by to visit and leave comments. May you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Ooooooh, fuzzy!

Katy, the Yarn Chef, and I did a little trade. I waited (somewhat) patiently for my package to arrive. And arrive it did! My yarn was all wrapped in tissue with a little Yarn Chef label.

And inside was the most gorgeous hand dyed acid green mohair and silk. In honor of Katy, I put it in a bowl.

And then I left it there. I like decorating with yarn whenever possible. :)

And look at this!

She added a little coordinating stitch marker and a recipe! Isn't that cool? She has a special gift with color, and I love her whole concept. Now...what to make? That is, after I tire of petting it. :)

A Review!

I was Googling around last night after hearing that my book had shipped from amazon.com and look what I found! My first review! How cool is that? And E tells me she's already started this pattern:

from her copy! I feel all official now. :)
