A place for my knitting ramblings ...

All signs point to yes!

On Thanksgiving morning, Mel & I went downtown to America's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Last year, it was freezing cold and I only captured Tom Selleck by the back of his head. This year, the weather was perfect and I got the picture I wanted! (Update/clarification: Tom Selleck is a native Detroiter, hence the huge papier-mache Magnum PI in honor of the holidays)

And yes, that is our mayor on the float in the background wearing the most hideous jacket ever! (Okay, maybe not EVER - but it is a close second to Puddy's 8 Ball jacket.)



Enjoyed Dad's stuffing on Thanksgiving - YUM!. Got a good chunk of my Christmas shopping done on Friday - HOORAY! Hung out with Ruby & Karen on Saturday evening - FUN! Spent a wonderful day in Ann Arbor on Sunday - YAY! And today ... it is back to reality.
Tonight was Knit Night. Drank some wine. Watched An Inconvenient Truth (see it, if you haven't). And finished off this little beauty ...

Loved hanging at the parade!

You are correct that I can tackle the "cable experience" of knitting
