New Yarn!

A couple of weekends ago I went to Santa Barbara to visit my daughter who goes to UCSB.  We had such a great time, just her and I, visiting museum, hiking, going to the beach AND going to the local yarn store.  Cardigans is a small, super cute yarn store that has so much fun stuff going on.  I could have spent all day there!

Instead, I bought this yarn,

New Pattern!

that goes with this pattern.  Amazingly enough, I plan to make this for myself!!  Hopefully before I am 90 years old :o)

EDITED:  A blog friend of mine, Kathy who blogs at Sewing Etc. has started Thankful November – she is posting everyday about things she is thankful for.  I started doing this in my calendar/journal quite awhile back -each morning I start my day with something I am thankful for and write it down.  This seems to start my day off in a very positive way.  Today, Kathy is thankful for the land around her.

I am also thankful for the land around me.  I am thankful for my neighborhood and my community.  Today I will get together with friends and knitters at the local library.  We knit (or do some craft) and chat about whatever comes to mind.  I am truly thankful for these friends and the little bit of time that we have carved out of our busy lives to come together each week.
