Mystery Solved!

I started these socks in October, just a few days after the first clue was posted.  It seemed to me like it took FOREVER to knit these socks.  I think partly because I didn't love the pattern on the needles, but every time I put them on a blocker or tried them on, they really were lovely.  So I persevered and now I have a lovely pair of socks.  And I think this is my first pair of green socks, which I think is really weird, because I really like green!

The details......
Pattern: Through the Loops Mystery KAL 2010
Yarn: Skinny Bugga in Hologram Moth
Needles: KP 2.25mm and magic looped
Mods: none!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I had a wonderful day with lots of family today.  The only way I can feel with 13 people around my dining room table that I love is BLESSED!  Here are a few snapshots from my day....

What is it about a kitchen?  It really is the heart of a home :-)
My oldest son Matthew is enjoying a conversation with Grammy Pete and Grampa Mike.
My brother Mike is catching up with Mom and Dad.
My sister-in-law Betty was a good sport and made the gravy.
Tom carved the turkey.....
.... and the dogs hoped that he would drop some turkey for them.

I agree Chandler.  A good day!

Happy Thanksgiving!
