Thank you

We just celebrated Thanksgiving a few days ago. It was a quiet affair but still a very enjoyable experience. I do have a lot to be thankful about. I have an amazing family; a rewarding job; hobbies to keep me busy and out of trouble; a roof over my head and more than enough to put on the dining table. I realize that this is more than most people in our world will ever enjoy. I have been keeping very busy. I tried my hand at baking a pie. Let us call this an experiment in the works. It will not win any beauty contests but it was still edible.
I used whole wheat flour. Something else needs to be added when you use this type of flour. It was a little on the tough side..and by tough side I mean this will survive the apocalypse with Keith Richards and cockroaches. I have been knitting socks. Lots of socks.
I have named these Boy Squared. I used Tanis Fiber Arts, Tulip colourway, blue label fingering hand dyed yarn. A pattern will follow as soon as I can make some time to sit down properly. These socks are from the pattern The Weasley's Homestead
I'm using DY3 Hard Serendipitous colour group, hand painted self striping sock yarn. I also received a package today:
Yes, more sock yarn. This will be all my yarn purchases for a while. I'm trying to save up for something huge..... And because Hallowe'en is quickly approaching, I thought I would share one of my favourite songs:

I wish I was brave enough to attempt socks. Knitting scarves is more my speed! :)

Nah. You just have to jump in. There are much scary things out there than knitting socks. For instance, teaching youth? It takes a special person to manage this no small feat. :D
