Happy socksgiving!

Friday, 25 November, 2011

We had a very laid back Thanksgiving at our house, aside from the three hours that the Packers game was on (they won!). Yesterday was also the 7th anniversary of when I learned how to knit, and I celebrated by casting on a new project. The Scientist had fun with some bacterial cultures, we cooked a truly excellent meal and started what I think might be a new tradition: socksgiving.

Last Christmas I surprised him with a pair of handknit socks, but now our little family is way too busy for me to be able to knit a project in secret.

So I finished up the socks I started when we were at Dealey Plaza and gave them to him yesterday morning. It made me happy to see the Scientist padding around the house in his new socks. What better day to give handknits to the ones you’re the most thankful for than Thanksgiving?

    What a great tradition! Glad to see those are Christian’s legs…I thought you gave up shaving šŸ˜‰ Love you honey, so thankful you are happy. Beautiful socks too and when I wear socks you have knit (or my extra fine special slippers) I always feel the love and work you have put into them.

    Knitting is a favorite past time of mine. I picked it up again when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter last year. I told my husband that I was going to knit our daughter a blanket for her ride home from the hospital. For my first real project it came out okay. It looks more like a towel but oh well. I am proud of it.Thinking about making some mittens this year!! Lets see how long those take:) Thank you for your great post!!! I look forward to hearing more from you.
