I hope all of you have great days of Gratitude tomorrow or whatever day it is you plan to celebrate. Thanks to all of you for being a part of my life.
Sarah came home last night and we haven't done much writing since. I expected that to happen so I need to get back to focus. She had friends over last night and then is out again tonight. Tomorrow I am sure she'll stay home. We'll watch the parade's together and have some quiet times. We are having a simple dinner with a small turkey and cutting down on some of the side dishes. Dave is on this diet and doesn't want to be tempted by too many leftovers. I only made one pie instead of 3 or 4 that I have before. Downsizing always seems a little strange.
We went shopping today, Sarah picked out the sweater she wanted me to make her and of course it is one of the most complex ones in any of my books. We headed to the Yarn Connection and I came home with a bag of Cascade 220 in charcoal gray. I was all set to start a swatch and was in the middle of it when I looked at the gauge info in the pattern and it is 5.5 stitches per inch and Cascade is set up for 4.5 or 5.0 I was so mad at screwing that up. So I spent some time on the net to see if anyone else had made the sweater. I did find someone who used Cascade 220 so being the stubborn person I am I really want to use it so I will be doing several swatches to get it right. I figure if I can't get the gauge right I may just have to do a different size. Its annoying but I really don't want to take the yarn back and start all over looking for something appropriate. Sometime creating things involves way too much frustration.
Have a great Holiday!
