I had a BUSY Thanksgiving. The drive back to the family Wednesday was a misery and I didn't get in until almost 4am. Drivers of the larger trucks were throwing themselves onto guardrails to decelerate in the hopes of not slamming into the stopped vehicles in front of them. Scary stuff especially since I was one of the stopped cars. Thankfully, I managed not to add myself to the 15 car pile up (thanks Dad for teaching me how to drive safely in bad weather when I was a teen). I kissed my mom hello when I finally got in and went straight to sleep. THe rest of the weekend was a blurr and I still need to recover from it. So much for a relaxing weekend. *sigh*

Never did get a chance to koolaid dye with the kiddies. Oh well, best laid plans and all that. I did only a small amount of knitting and managed to take a picture of the stitch markers I made in trade who are on their way to their new owners. Hope you all like them! :)

That's all for now. I have to rest tonight and plan the cleaning, reorganization and rearrangement of my little home. It's driving me a wee bit batty and it needs to fast become a little sanctuary...ahh sanctuary *sigh*

Off to the post office and errands before heading back to "work". Knitting will be accomplished in the next few days and pictures will be included....just need to fiddle with this camera a bit to get it to focus correctly. Posted by Picasa

Okay, this an open invite all day knitting day right from your own cozy chair. The point? Get those WIPs into FOs and enjoy knitting with others. Here is a little car clicker cozy I am making for a friend. Hope to see a few pictures of your WIPs and FOs posted to your blogs too. Be back later with more updates!

All quiet....

Well, it will be quiet here at the ranch for a bit while I dig my heels in for the sake of education. All my concentration and focus will be directed toward a singular goal that will occur this weekend. I have waited a long time and it is final "go" time. Keep any and all fingers, appendages, etc., crossed and send good thoughts and vibes this Friday and Saturday.

I have promised myself an entire day of just resting and knitting...and I have enlisted a few accomplices to make sure that's all I do. Ahhhh...wish it was Sunday already....
