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,
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.
