Happy Thanksgiving!!

A slightly smaller Thanksgiving this year! My great aunt Mimi has been down in the bay area this week and she has been spending it with Rowan and I (usually she stays at mom's house). Its been so nice to have her staying with us! We'll have dinner tonight with my mom and Snowboarder, and then I'll stop by my dad's to bring him leftovers :) Since there aren't as many of us this year, I don't need to do as much cooking. However, it'll be the first Thanksgiving I'll be making fish too (Snowboarder doesn't eat meat and I can't let him just eat all the fixin's even though he said that was fine....his mom always makes him fish too, so I've got to at least give it a try!).

And because I am thankful for all of you, I figured I'd share a recent stash enhancement from Purlescence.


l to r: STR lightweight, Heartstone, Oma Desala, Muckity Muck, 2 skeins of Luscious Silk in Jasper

Not sure what I will do with this yet, but isn't it gorgeous?!

Oma Desala

Probably one of my favorites from Tina's recent new colors.


You know its bad when I didn't buy this one the first time. I thought I already had it. But no. I have Heart Throb. So I went back to get this pretty the following week!
So I've got some cooking to do! Have a wonderful day everyone!! I'll be doing a wee bit of shopping tonight when Woolgirl's Black Friday sale starts at midnight PST and then Cupcakefaerie and I are meeting Tapmouse at the Purlescence Black Friday sale tomorrow morning around 6:15!!! 35% off everything (except BMFA) is pretty much the only thing that can get me out of bed that early!!
Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Fishie Day!

Mmmm...yeah, I'd get out of bed for a yarn Black Friday--and that's about it!

Ack! Did they have that silk when I was there?!?!?! Man, that's pretty.

I got up a bit early this morning too. For yarn. I got a sweater's worth of a lovely shade of Patons for less than $15. Can't beat that with a stick.

Oh my, that stash enhancement is gorgeous! I love progressive sales. My LYS had one last week to celebrate their anniversary.
I agree that this is the only Black Friday shopping that could entice me out of my warm, comfy bed at such an early hour! :) Enjoy!
