I’m not a vegetarian, but this sounds good.
Stressed? Listen to this.
While I am not in favor of beautiful blondes wearing 5″ heels, I do like this music. It always amazes me how lovely thrash metal can sound when done in another way.
Disclaimer: I have received no freebies from Ms Treadway nor from Cafe Press; paid full price for this calendar — well worth it!
I’m off to New Mexico today to celebrate with Elder Son, et al. Hope your turkey day is filled with happy family and good things to eat. (And if your team wins, so much the better!)
Lots of reading and listening to report:
Reading other people’s, particularly Carole‘s, Goodreads reviews of books I have read has made me realize once again that I am not the world’s most discerning reader. I read almost purely for entertainment and escapism and am likely to miss anything except the most glaring plot holes or unresolved plot lines or characterizations. Oh, well…

Lots of knitting going on here, too, all small projects. I am the queen of small projects.
I played yarn chicken with that cowl, although truth be told, I had a pretty good idea of how much yarn I would need for the final border. Postal scale FTW!
I started another cowl for the silent auction, but I’m not sure it is working out as well as it might.
Also planning the hat for QGD3. Check this out:
Much thanks to Ann in NJ for the Stitch Fiddle online chart maker recommendation. It worked nicely. (I plan to embroider the black outlines after the knitting is done. It seemed way too complicated, and probably wouldn’t work well, to try to incorporate them into the chart.) A little stash diving has shown me that I don’t need to dye all the colors I need. I have enough of everything except maybe the lightest blue. May have to dye that one.
Elder Son called today and happened to mention that, because both of GF’s daughters would be home for Thanksgiving but not for Christmas, they were all going to celebrate Christmas at Thanksgiving. Gee, thanks, kid. Two days warning is perfect for the mom who is knitting Christmas presents. (I told him Christmas from me would arrive in the mail. Pfft!)
For more unraveling, head on over to Kat’s to see what everyone else is knitting and reading.
This has been sitting on my desktop for seven months. Time to publish!
(Can you tell I am running a bit low on blog material?)
