What the Boys Have Been Waiting For

The morning after Thanksgiving and it is finally feeling like the Holidays.
The boys are coloring snow men and making paper snow flakes.
We have been out already and picked up a gingerbread house and egg nog.

Funny how amusing the first flakes of snow are and how unamusing they will be by January. So, let's think about my first handspun yarn, instead.
I have wound it into balls and my intention is to make mittens.
Obviously, I need some practice. But I am very pleased with the first attmept.
I hope your Thanksgiving was full of gratitude and love, our was.
I hope the rest of this joyous season is fabulous for you, too.
By the way, only 32 days until Christmas... how's your knitting coming?

OOh, Heather, that handspun looks yummy! I am beginning to spin, too, and plan to do some later today since my hands are pretty tired of knitting. Beginning to get numb fingertips, so I do believe I'm DONE knitting for a day or two!

The Wright gingerbread house is a hoot! WOW! (my mom's an architect. She'll appreciate that!)

Your hand dyed yarn looks lovely tied together with that red string. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the first snow. Especially if it's enough to cover the ground.
