First of all, I hope everyone had a very happy Thanksgiving! I did! The trip went well, the food was good, and the company was friendly! And, yes, I did get some knitting done! (Hooray!) We'll talk about it later.

Today I did some cleaning. I had to. Just take a look at my "desk":

Yes, I know my desk is a dining room table. That's beside the point. It is a total mess. Or was...

Yay! Clean!

Well, I still have a lot of cleaning to do, despite my all day marathon. I know. Exciting stuff.

Anyhow, here's some knitting content:

I know--what is it? Right now it's pretty ugly, but it is the beginnings of a beautiful felted purse I'm making for my mom. I'm wondering if this diamond pattern will be visible after felting. We'll see. It's going to be brown with black trim. Trust me--it'll be nice.

One last thing for now (I'm tired): Sean has just gotten new glasses and they, are, ADORABLE!! Here, take a look------------->

Cute, huh? I really couldn't get him to sit still for a photo. Eh, oh well. I'll have to catch him when he's not looking.

Right now I'm reading the most compelling and heartbreaking book. I'm probably the last one to read it, considering it was a huge deal when it was published a few years ago. If you haven't read it yet, I suggest you read "Lovely Bones." It's just...well it's horrifying, but beautiful at the same time. It's about a teenager who is murdered. She goes to Heaven, then from there she watches her family deal with her death. It sounds gruesome, but it is handled in such a way that makes you want to read further. Then again, maybe you already know. Like I said, I have to be one of the last people to read it.

Until next time...

It took me forever to get to this book, too, because I thought it was going to be so depressing--and it's really not. It is a lovely book.
