Recovering from Thanksgiving dinner

The grands and their parents joined us for Thanksgiving dinner last week. We had a traditional dinner with a few twists. Since none of us really likes a real turkey, I roasted a boneless breast with a dry rub and it was delicious, if I may say so myself. Amanda sent along some photos she took of the boys. This is one of my favorites. It makes me smile just looking at those cuties.
My apologies to Elaine this week because I forgot to post a photo of the two beautiful shawls she knitted and placed into our inventory two weeks ago. She used a cotton yarn that is soft and squishy. I can see these will be well worn.
Kathleen finished this cardigan using a blended yarn of acrylic, viscose, nylon, and angora. By next Tuesday you will probably see a matching hat and another sweater.
Barbara decided to go stash diving and came up with two full skeins of Lamb's Pride wool and enough scraps to make a nice warm cap.
We had a full house tonight.
Maureen worked on a pair of slipper socks for a Christmas gift.
Carole added some length to a pair of fingerless mitts. Later on she switched to her sailboats baby blanket.
And Beth worked on a cardigan sweater for a special little girl.
I finished a couple of more Christmas gifts which you will get to see after the holidays since they are all wrapped already. I felt ambitious yesterday and knocked off a whole lot of wrapping. A few more knitting projects and some actual shopping and I think I'll be ready for Christmas.
