I'm Back!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. We spent Thanksgiving Day in town with my family and then headed to VA to spend the rest of the weekend with the in laws. It was Delicious to say the least. I ate way more than I should. (Or any grown man should for that matter.)


The girls spend many hours working on these:


Olivia made the pink one. Landon made the multi-colored one. Connor wanted traditional Christmas colors of red and green. I added the pom-pons. They had a blast. Guess what they want to make everyone for Christmas?



* Thanks for all the comments about my talented girls. They have many wonderful talents, but patience to sit and knit isn't one of them. They used a Singer Knitting Machine. It's a toy for ages 8 and up. Very simple to use, but by no means produces a perfect finished product. Great for kids projects. I'd wear a scarf made by my girls, imperfections and all.

OK, your girls are seriously impressive. I tried to learn how to knit once. I had a girl come to my house and invited a bunch of friends over to have a class together. I was all thumbs (but maybe that was the glass of wine?) and gave up very quickly! :)

That knitting machine reallly took a work out Thanksfiving weekend. It may never recover. Replacements are on the way, but a some what different style. Who knows what creations the girls will come up with when they all have one and there is no waiting in line. It was a great weekend!
