The festivities will be here (DK's) on the 16th. Be there or get moths in your wool!!!! :) :) :)
I hope ewe all enjoyed your Thanksgiving with friends and family! I still haven't had my fill of turkey, though I am planning on having some turkey pie this week for dinner.
It looks like December 9th is the next scheduled meeting time. I will host at my house and sure hope you all can come. I'm excited about December and all the festivities this time of year. We put our Christmas tree up today (and Tim put out his Menorah). I'm knitting non-stop getting things made. Why oh why don't I do this in the summer!!
Don't you just love this picture. It's my new desktop wallpaper. I got it here if you'd like to download it.

Hello Loopy Ewes! I just thought I'd drop a line and let you know about two helpful things that I came across this past weekend. After my red couch swallowed up my last available yarn needle, I remembered that I had seen a pattern for a Knitting Doo-dad Holder way back when. I found the pattern and got busy knitting. The holder is straight garter stitch that goes fairly quickly, and putting it together is pretty clever. The result? Little pockets that hold snug any yarn, cable or knitting needle that you need to have on hand. It will even hold your scissors in the center. Now I'm a huge fan of knitting in front of the TV at night, so this turned out to be a huge life saver for me. I thought I'd pass it along in case you have hungry couches as well. I think this would even be a good thing on a plane ride.
The other thing I found while I was knitting the doo-dad holder was an online row counter. I loved this! You hit the space bar after every row and it keeps track of your count. It doesn't get any easier than that, in my opinion.
Well, Loopies, I hope all of your knitting projects are going swimmingly. Don't miss the friendly post by our fellow LE, Judi, below this one.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Hi there Loopy Ladies! I am so sorry I didn't come last week, I really wanted to be there. I hear that we are going to bi-weekly meetings, which sounds good. I hope to be there in December, for sure.
I have been busy with crafts and sewing projects, but still find time to knit, too. I can't wait to see all the great projects you are all working on. I had my surgery in September, and have lost 43 lbs. so far. I feel good, and I gave away alot of fat clothes.
We are clearing out some stuff because we are remodeling some of our house, and I am wondering if anyone is looking for a piano? We have 2, and one has to go. Let me know if you are interested. It is 40 years old, but in excellent condition. Lynn had it tuned 2 years ago, so it might need tuning. She is asking $1200. for it, which is what an appraiser suggested.
I am going to MN, to see the grandkids on Thanksgiving. Can't wait.
Miss you all, I will be back in Dec., I promise. Love, Judi
