Breathe Deep...

Breathe Deep - in Plucky Knitter MCN in 1963

My Breathe Deep mittens are done - the pattern is by Kirsten of Through the Loops - and I would say she hit another one out of the park. And the name, it is so fitting as we are about to round the bend to holiday chaos. For now, these pretties will go on my pile of misfit knits - ready for gift giving. I just feel like knitting anything that fancies me, so what is next? A quick Plucky plug, the MCN is positively delicious to work with - so sproingy! I. love. it. I found my woven ends want to sneak out a bit, I think because it is such a nice round yarn, so I wove in extra!

My family and I just enjoyed our Thanksgiving ham - we had turkey at my in-laws on Sunday, so we shook it up a bit. We went around and said what we were thankful for - my littlest one said she was thankful for lollipops - so we're starting small this year. That isn't a bad thing. I am personally, so thankful for healthy children, and a healthy family. A co-worker's 5-year-old was recently diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in her brain stem. We have all watched this little sweetie grow up and it is so painful to imagine this is really happening...and the prognosis is poor. So, please hug your children or your spouse, or even your cat today. Life throws us some curveballs now and then, so any little bit of goodness is something to take time and marvel from time to time. Take good care blogging friends - I am thankful for you!

I can't imagine the pain of having to go through that with one of my kids. I am so thankful that they are healthy. Your mittens are so lovely.

Happy Thanksgiving. I am also thankful for our healthy family this year - can't imagine having to go through a health crisis with one of my children.

I love the mittens - I'll be adding that pattern to the queue for sure.

Pretty mittens! What a great idea-- knit what you want, and figure out what to do with it later :)

Happy Thanksgiving!
