Unraveled Wednesday 11/25/20

Good Morning!

It feels so nice to have not gotten up and checked work email first thing!  A little break is a most welcome thing.

Joining in with Kat for Unraveled things.  A small amount of progress was made on Aspen Sock #2.


It doesn't look like it in the photo, but I am roughly half way down the foot.  If I don't get too distracted, I may finish this one up today or tomorrow.  Time will tell.

I did soak the Antler Hat in Soak yesterday and what a bunch of red water I had!  And sheepy smelling wool.  LOL.  I couldn't find a mixing bowl (or any bowl) that was wide enough but also tall enough to pull the hat over, so instead I pinned it to one of my blocking pads and it is now drying (slowly) in the downstairs bathroom.  Guessing I will start another one shortly as my friend indicated last night when we talked that she would love one and then started singing Happy Birthday to herself (her birthday is in early January) - LOL

Today I mostly plan to do the little bit of cleaning that I successfully avoided yesterday.  There is no Thanksgiving cooking or prep work that HAS to be done today, and we are heading to Colin and Mailing's for dinner tonight.  My guess is that we will skip the outdoor fire (it is grey and could be raining by night time) and have a fire inside.  

However you are celebrating...or not...Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Love that Thanksgiving card. How funny is that?

    I think there might be TWO finishes in my day today.

  3. Yay for a bit of a break and I am going to be doing the heel flap of the second sock! I am excited to be so close to finishing the holiday sock knitting goals.

  5. With as busy as you've been lately, I'm sure you're enjoying the break even more! Your friend does know how to drop a hint -- but I think that's the sign of someone who will really appreciate a handknit.

    Enjoy your break and your Thanksgiving!

  9. Cute card! I hope you have a relaxing day and enjoy your dinner with Colin and Mailing. It's been rainy here for a couple of days too but I'll take that over snow! :-) It will be a quiet day here tomorrow and I'm looking forward to Dennis being home for four entire days.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  12. Oh so much to be thankful for. Just the two of us. But we will contact the kiddos and my sister later for zoom. We will watch the Covid safe Thanksgiving parade , we will watch the Dog show! and i'm sure we will make a dessert as I refused to go to the busiest pie shop around during covid to get an apple pie. Likely a cobbler will be in the oven after the Turkey breast! Seriously .thankful for blog pals, and for the cats, and the promise of 2021. Happy Turkey with your family
