Give thanks!

I fell off the daily posting wagon, but I'm not beating myself up for that (thankful for the pressure-free pleasure of writing and reading blogs and the friends I have in/through blogland). The dark, rainy weather (thankful for rain that gives us vibrant vegetation) hasn't been conducive to photography, and my time the last two days taken up by office job and MIL transportation (thankful for work and safe travel to downtown Portland and back). My WIP has screeched to a halt because I ran out of dark brown yarn yesterday after the LYS closed for the holiday, but I'm thinking my way through a work-around; I have some leftover brown yarn I think I can fudge with through the end of a row, then punt with a change of colors (I'm thankful for the mental stimulation knitting provides).

But right now I have to finish my homemade crescent rolls for our potluck Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family in our church's fellowship hall (thankful for God, family, friends, and food). I hope you are having a blessed day, too!

Happy Thanksgiving from . . .

Happy Thanksgiving! Crescent rolls are a great Thanksgiving bread.

The colors and design are gorgeous! I hope the brown work around is successful.

Happy thanksgiving to you. What a beautiful knitted item. I have never mastered or enjoyed changing colors except with gradients and even then I am a bit color challenged but I love how it looks. Great work.

Mama Pea, Wanda, and RK, I can only take credit for the knitting; Romi Hill created the beautiful design – and it's SIMPLE! You only knit with one color at a time; what looks like colorwork is created through slipped stitches.
