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?
