Well this is what I want and I want to see it on my daughter's table. If this weather doesn't cooperate, and we can't go to Delaware, I'm going to scream. I'm picturing myself having the Thanksgiving Buffet at the Ramada. So I have the decision to make today whether or not to shop for food to cook in case of canceled plans or let it go and end up going out if the weather gets bad. My daughter is freaking out. She says she can't do it without me but that is so much crap. She's a much better cook than I ever was.... already! She enjoys it. I hate it.
On the knitting front, I worked on the Opal socks last night. I have to get them finished for Christmas and I'm weary of the scarf and hat at this point. I'll finish the socks and then go back to them. I love knitting socks. I want to start socks with the hand dyed yarn my Pittsburgh Secret Pal sent me. I think I will do them even before I start Kepler which is really high on the priority list. I just want some warm, new socks for ME! My LYS is getting some kind of new sock yarn in that's supposed to be very much in demand and with very limited supply. She asked me if I wanted on the list for that when it comes in so I said...sure... sign me up. I don't even know what it is! But there goes my vow not to buy more yarn until New Years Day.
At the New Years Day sale I intend to purchase a bulky yarn for my daughter's big knock-a-round sweater. I'm not sure exactly what I want yet. I guess I'll know it when I see it. I do know that I don't want it to be a solid color. I'd love something "tweedy". Is that a word? Debbie Bliss has a bulky tweed yarn but my LYS doesn't carry her yarns. I'll think of something.
So, I'm off to work. Have a wonderful holiday and keep a good thought that I don't end up at the Ramada buffet with a husband and two college kids all depressed that they missed the good meal at daughter # 1's.
