My new knitting passion

I love these little garden gnomes created by Alan Dart. I'm sure I'll be making more of them.

Thanksgiving Feast

And a good time was had by all at the Rector Family Thanksgiving Feast held at Matt and Marian's home this year.
Great food and delightful company.

Newest Knitting

Lots of projects finished and on the needles

Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jacket. It's hard to believe that the big glob of knitting at the top will fold into the sweater at the bottom. It's all done but putting on the buttons and sewing up the shoulder seams which are the only seams there are in it.
A cap for a 4 year old pirate friend of mine
Wrist warmers made of a yarn called Marble. I'll be making a Fake Isle cap with the same color yarn.

The beginning of my Swallowtail Shawl with Stan the Alpaca yarn.
