I finished the baby hat last Friday and then forgot to take a picture until it was in the gift bag! I was very pleased with the results and started immediately on a tea cozy of the same pattern. It is so fun to just be knitting something simple and festive.
I'm trying to make headway on my reading:
Beasley's Christmas Party by Booth Tarkington was finished just today as I was browning sausage for the stuffing. Michael is returning it to the library as I type -- it's due today! I enjoyed it. What I like in a Christmas story is either "old world" (i.e. British) or "old Christmas" (i.e. not modern). This was "old Christmas" and took place somewhere in the midwest maybe 100 years ago. It's a short story (100 pages) narrated by a journalist who has just moved to town and is intrigued by what appears to be a very strange neighbor next door. It all ends in a very satisfactory and sweet way.
Now it is time to hit the housework! The pies are baked and the stuffings prepared and tomorrow will be the BIG day for getting it all on the table! I hope everyone has a lovely Thanksgiving!!!
