Here we are, Thanksgiving eve in the US …. Wednesday night and I will be in the kitchen preparing tomorrows’ big feast, and slipping in some stitching later. The family is coming and I need to find places to hide all my yarn, and I’m talking boxes of it. Hmmmmm, maybe I could cover them with a cloth and use as a table. (Don’t let on what I’m doing). I’m not working on a new project tonight, but finishing up some of the things I have in the works. Time to piece together the sweater parts, weave in ends on the throw, maybe add a few more rounds, and I have a few more scarves to make.

After the Thanksgiving meal is over, there is always the inevitable “ton” of leftovers that need to be packed up and put away before the day is complete. Of course, some leftovers go home with you in plastic bowls. Others will travel home with you on foam plates covered with plastic wrap or foil. That being said, the leftovers I want to focus on are those that will travel home with you on your favorite knit or crochet keepsake. Dare I say it, “stains!??”
In September I reflected on how beginners might take the next step in their knitting and crochet hobby. Now that the holidays will be here soon, there are many ways to use yarn to make the season bright. It’s a wonderful time to enjoy your craft, add loving touches to your home and give homey things to friends and family.
