"It's a Wonderful Day in the Neighborhood"

Good afternoon! News of mine is that I opened up my etsy shop again, Tangledmania Shoppe (link is above as well). The goal is to make some money for a second car, and feed my knitting and crocheting love.

Any suggestions?

Thanksgiving is this week, so I wanted to focus on what I'm grateful for.

1) My sweet daughters. They are so loving and amazing, even when they drive each other and me mad haha.
2) My fantastic support system. I have so many friends who are there for me. Thank you so much!
3) The fact that I knit and crochet. These skills have helped me with mindfulness and finding my center between and underneath both happiness and suffering.

What are you grateful for this week? What are your plans over Thanksgiving?

I am going to be baking a turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, salad, and a dose of laughter and a little football (who is playing this week?).

My daughter's teddy bears are going well, as you can see... I sewed the legs onto the body wrong, so took that apart haha. But my mattress stitch is look lovely :P.

I'm also back to the Water Shawl, for the mkal that finished a while ago. I think that I will finish this and put it up in the shop, but the dropped stitches were very interesting haha. That picture just does not do the color justice (tsk tsk).

If I have enough yarn to finish projects placed in time out, the goal will be to finish them and put them in the shop, since I obviously am not super happy and in love with them. Still have a sweater to finish, and today or tomorrow I will get my yarn from knitpicks.com, most of which is for my oldest daughter, ironically.

  Working on a celtic owl pullover, similar to the walking cats sweater I did for my youngest. The Andean Chullo Hat from knitpicks (was a free pattern a few weeks ago), going to make a few Christmas stocking ornaments (free download), and a pair of socks. Phew, right?

Seriously, be well folks, and there for each other. Let's make the community we have felt is missing. First within ourselves, and then with others. Love you guys!
