thankful

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Goodness gracious. Where did that month go?
Thanksgiving was spent in Florida. There really is so much to be thankful for.

A photo was taken to let you know how thankful I am. I can't believe I'm just now getting here to let you know. I love this community we are all a part of. I feel very blessed to be a part of it.
So, tomorrow's a big day. The countdown begins.
I have a hat and some fingerless gloves on the needles.
How about you?
Who's knitting what?
Please let us all know.
And, thanks so much for stopping by.
xx,
leslie

  1. I would be thankful also if I were in Florida, but alas, I'm not.

    The beach does look soothing behind you though; thanks for sharing.

    I'm working on a vest, socks, and an afghan.

  5. It is definately a crazy time of year and there is a lot to be thankful for, but alas my knitting basket is not feeling thankful and is fitting in with the overstuffed and full feeling we all tend to get at this time of year. I have a skirt, 2 boleros, a cardie and a 2 jumpers, a second sock and a tablecloth on the go in my basket at the moment and they are all feeling very neglected lol.

  8. We're expecting 8 inches of snow tomorrow morning so it'll be a perfect day to start a new Thorpe and finish up the Evangeline fingerless mitts that I just adore!
    Have fun with your knits. ... just curious which patterns you're working on now.

  9. I have a sweater for my 8 year old daughter in the final stages, and probably a couple of hats for brothers to knit, but other than that, a single Wintergreen mitten to knit as a gift to myself (the other one has been done for weeks, lol.)

  10. I can't imagine being in Florida at this time of year but it looks beautiful! I've finished my Christmas knitting and am on to a baby hat for a wee one due in January. And then: Kaffe Fassett's Wentworth for me, yummy yummy....

  11. I've got some toasty on my needles...Maggie's best friend requested a pair for Christmas. So thankful for your talented generosity! Happy December!

  12. Wow, tomorrow is December 1st... scary.

    I have to get started on some socks, hoping to have be my only knitting project so that I can definitely get them done for Christmas. With 4 kids it can be hard to get some knitting time in, especially since the socks are for my husband (and he actually looks at and asks about what I'm making).

    I have to say, I would love to knit up a few ornaments for us and for gifts though.

  16. Hi all! My Thanksgiving was a very nice one and there is certainly so much to be thankful for! Right now, I am working on the Debbie Bliss Broken Rib Cardigan for my man and the Plain Talk Ruffle Mittens from Boutique Knits. Holiday knitting is in full swing!

  17. Yesterday I finished a baby knit. It's now blocking, yé! I also have a pair of mittens in progress since last January! I am thankful for so many things! Life is good to me!

  18. I live in FL and my knitting has been a lot heavier this year since our daughter is attending university up in South Dakota... my beach bunny is freezing her tail off!!

    I've finished an original design cowl for her, I've got a sweater just over halfway done for my husband, I've got a newsboy hat to make for my youngest, I made a dishcloth for my mama and I'm debating if I'm going to bother with making teacher gifts this year.

    Plus, I've got Nerd Wars going on over on Ravelry which has been great fun - and a fabulous motivator!

  19. I get spoiled living in Arizona. It is magnificent here right now. I have finished two of the three sweaters I want to make for my children for the holidays. I am working on a few smaller gifts for nieces and nephews before starting the final sweater. Thus far, I am feeling doo.

  22. I'm envious of your Thanksgiving spot! I want you to know that I really like your blog, and it's one of my favorites! I'm in a sea of indecisiveness regarding what to knit for the holidays, but so far I have socks, tiny snowmen, and fingerless gloves on the needles.

  25. Oh it looks so wonderfully sunny where you are!
    I just finished up my first mitten, I found the perfect quick little pattern from knitty for someone who has never done mittens before, the time simply flew by. So now I know exactly what to give as gifts this year!

  27. I've been making slouchy hats for everyone. The Rikke hat out of Tosh DK is addictive. I just want to knit another one and another one...

    Glad you had a lovely Thanksgiving! We spent ours near the ocean with family, too, for which I am very thankful.

  29. I'm knitting two "tiny tea leaves" cardis for my girls, one pair of "flocked mittens" for my mother and a "Mr. Woodhouse's Scarf" for myself because I love all things Jane Austen:) Quotations are for those Ravelry lovers. Happy Holidays!

    Awesome shoulders!! I'm sure you work hard at those! Guess I need to get in gear with the weights! :))

    I have Pipibird's Circumnavigate in gray on the needles for one of my daughters. Next is Mara, by Madelinetosh, for my mom in a blue! Christmas is marching so close so quickly! YIKES!

    Thankful for all our blessings!~Jan

    So much to be thankful for! Just finished up a couple pair of socks, with one being my first pair of argyle. So cute! Just ordered yarn for Aidez (thanks for the inspiration) and can't wait to get started. I'm also working on "Malabrigo Loafers" (cocoknits.com) that will make great Xmas gifts. They're so adorable, fast and easy. The yarn is oh sooooo soft and the colors available are just beautiful.

  34. Hi, Leslie. I actually just started a new blog and am looking to join the knitting community. Yours was the first that I ran onto and I really enjoy what I've read so far.

    As for what I have on my needles... Well... I just started a new Cookie A sock pattern (Pointelle from Knit. Sock. Love.) and I ABSOLUTELY ADORE everything about it. It is the most challenging pattern that I've taken on yet, but I'm about halfway to the toe on the first one. So far, so good. Now I just have to decide whether I'm going to gift them in the spirit of the holiday or take them to my grave. haha

  38. Hi, weather here in Shetland Isles is VERY wet and windy. I'm thankful that I live in a small cozy house!
    I'm currently knitting a shaded Shetland wool shawl in pure natural un-dyed colours of Shetland sheep. Please feel free to visit my blog, A Yarn over Needles. It's a relatively new blog but I think you will find something of interest. Please comment and follow. I love hearing from all you knitters out there!!
    Thank you.
