Happy Thanksgiving November 24, 2004

Filed under: Uncategorized — katy @ 6:50 pm

Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate.  Tomorrow we will spend the day with Kevin’s family.  Thankfully, I just have to bring a dessert. 

Today was a great day at work and I was thankful for Granny’s delivery of Lantern Moon products.  I bought the classic Folding Basket for myself for Christmas.  Lantern_moon I had seen it at Rhinebeck but resisted it’s tempation as I was afraid Owen would crush it…but I love it.  I ordered some needles as well but they haven’t arrived.  My mom just got some straights off eBay and she says they are fabulous.  I know she likes their dpns.

I am nearly finished with my MIL’s silk/merino scarf.  I called Tess Designer Yarns about ordering more.  I have to say, the person I spoke with on the phone was not very pleasant.  It’s a shame but I won’t be ordering yarn.  Gracie’s poncho is finished and she loves it.  I plan to start a few more Christmas gifts this week–including a Gigi cardigan for my niece/god daughter. 

Kevin is at a basketball game tonight but promises to come home with a new camera cord.  Cameron and I have a date to watch the latest Harry Potter movie after Owen goes to bed.  Gracie is at a sleepover and I appear to be rambling.

I haven’t posted updates in a while.  I think ’cause I’m not knitting her so much I have neglected everyone else’s.  Jody says third time’s a charm.  And I would have to agree–her new color is gorgeous!  I will post a better update next week. 

Again, have a Happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful weekend.

    Cool basket – very sophisticated! Did you also lengthen the body? Gift recipicient is 6’2″ and I’m making the largest size – I think will drag out one of his old fav’s to compare. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!

    your new basket is wonderful — I agree with Mary Beth very sophisticated. I also like the Sirdar pattern — is it a cardigan or more of a ballet top styling?

    Happy Thanksgiving…we are having it tomorrow…MIL is never a sticklette for dates…I never celebrated it till I married my husband, he’s an American.
    I’m brining the Yams. I used to dislike it, because I hated to bloated heavy feeling I would have as a result…but these days I just tell MIL to give me a 3rd of everything…Small portions are the key. =)

    Great basket, Katy! “I’m” bringing dessert, too, but it’s the hubster doing all the work (he loves it!). Have a great Thanksgiving.

    Hope your holiday was wonderful!

    I’ve heard that Tess’ folks are not pleasant or helpful on the phone. I’m out of sock yarn for a pair of knee socks I’m knitting for Michelle- yarn I got at MS&W actually. I’ve been hesitant to call and ask if they have more in the colorway though because I’ve heard they are not nice. Ugh.

    Their stuff is so amazing in person!

    Classic basket – great looking. Of course I had to surf over to the Lantern Moon site. Then I had to tell myself – No, you may not. Thanks for your encouragement and posts on my site.

  9. The folding basket is very nice…good for you!

    Have a great Thanksgiving Katy!

    yup Tess…I have only ever bought from them at MS&W and Stitches East…one of the ladies was helpful, but the rest were bleh, bleh, bleh! Good to know that about them that it’s the same on the phone.

    There once was a time when writing a letter admonishing them for bad behavior would have meant something…but now? Eh, who has the time.

    Hope you had a nice thanksgiving!
