Whole lotta moving going on

Thanksgiving was very nice. I've so much to be thankful for. Everyone was together. All the nephews and nieces were in town and some first cousins met for the first time. We didn't have it our house, but had a lovely gathering at middle brother's.

I've made good progress on Rosedale. The yarn is the Silver Thaw re-cycled from the Promise of Spring cardigan that didn't work out quite right. This is a very pleasant knit. It's stockinette with a bit of intarsia to make it interesting. Nothing complicated, just nice and easy.

I started on sweaters for Cubs for Kids. It's a TKGA supported charity and the current charity knitting project for the Palmetto Purlers knitting guild. This is the first of the batch.

Shedir from the Knitty breast cancer special edition is on the needles. I have'nt worked on it in over a week.

We're still in the process of moving things. The kitchen was not completed for Thanksgiving. The countertop isn't finished, the floor hasn't been done and we're waiting on appliances to be delivered. We will be ready by Xmas and it's going to be great. This weekend I'll begin setting up the craft room!!!

I'm just catching up on my blog reading, and while I love all the beautiful items you've been working on, it's the floor that got to me. After all those years, and it still looks absolutely fantastic. I'm convinced now that the next house we remodel (shoot me now) we'll go with red oak. I'm sold! Can't wait to see pics of all the updates.

Shedir is such a gorgeous pattern. I can't wait to see yours finished.
