A rare Sunday morning post to thank you all for your congratulatory messages about my pending auntie-dom. I’m feelin’ the love and looking forward to kissing cloud-soft cheeks!! My sister was here on Friday to soak it up herself — and she’s feeling a little chubby, but very fine and happy.
My contribution to Thanksgiving dinner at Mom’s — mashed potatoes! Love that ergonomic potato peeler. We had way too much food, as usual. Turkey, stuffing, corn pudding, fruit salad, broccoli-cauliflower salad, two jello salad/molds, potatoes, rolls, and three pies. We forgot the sweet potatoes in the microwave… that wasn’t me, I was only in charge of mashed!
On Friday, before heading out for shopping, I delivered the shop sample vest, a pair of mittens, and a hat to the most local LY/GS that I knit from the Cascade Magnum. I forgot to take pictures… It is not very flattering on me with the little tum I have, but it was just adorable on Kt, and she loves it!
I finished the Shapely Shawlette (Christmas gift) for my sister last night, but it still needs blocking. It looks great! And I cast on for the second of Mdd’s thrummed mittens during Doctor Zhivago — I was able to knit about half the cabled cuff.
Kt is pressing the fabric for her skirt at this very minute. The sewing machine will soon be humming — and I intend to finish Ai’s skirt this afternoon, too. Sewing duties will be finito!
