Survived the Turkey Day!

Well, sort of anyway. We had wonderful company, thanks for coming out to see us, Mom! And we had the traditional turkey for dinner. I have to say that this was my best one yet! We went to the Ice! Show in Nashville, it was really cool, and really cold! It had 1.5 million pounds of ice to make the sculptures:

Chris and Caryn worked on the barn/outbuilding:

Doesn't it look great?

I started a scarf for a Christmas gift:

That's Noro Kureyon and the pattern is from an old, old Knitter's Magazine. I didn't get nearly enough knitting or spinning time in during this vacation, but after all, it's not often that we get company from Maine! Took Mom back to the airport, and promptly caught some kind of virus - just in time to go back to work on Monday. It just figures doesn't it?

My scarf is from Knitter's: Winter 2002 K69, this one is full of scarves and hats. I am doing the Wavy Scarf Ver.3 on page 40.

Both the barn and the scarf are looking good! I'm glad you had a good Thanksgiving.

I'm so glad to see your blog!!! How are you doing? I am trudge on with my shawl. I think the bottom part is not that nice but it is getting better. I am now in the process of getting a new camera. The price ranges from ca. $400 - to $1000. How am I suppose to reconcile that? And do you remember the green shawl? Well now I am backtracking so as to get that finished nicely. Then I will have a bunch of scarves and a couple of shawls to block. Question is - when will I get the time to do that????

June, I really like your scarf! Can you tell me what issue of Knitters it was in? I don't have the old, old ones but I have quite a few so I'm wondering if I have it.

Thanks so much for the pattern info, June! Evidently I stopped collecting Knitters Magazine promptly after the Fall 2002 issue. (that figures! :-D)
But at least I didn't have to go through 7 years of issues page by page to find out!
