Hi everybody, I thought I’d take a moment to do the cheesy-yet-well-intentioned Thanksgiving tradition. You know, the one where we all go around the dinner table (or in this case, the knitting website) and tell everyone what we’re thankful for.
I know it’s dorky, but I’m in a thankful mood (but maybe that’s just my endorphins building up in preparation for tomorrow’s feast), so let’s do this thing.
I am thankful for knitting! It’s both therapy and entertainment. It keeps me busy and keeps me warm. There’s something almost alchemical about turning yarn into something as complex as a lace shawl or as practical as a thick wool socks. It warms my heart (and feet), and challenges my brain, and I love it.
I am thankful for my husband (obviously). He puts up with having an entire room dedicated to knitting and doesn’t mind when he finds project bags scattered across the house. He ‘s been insanely supportive with my blog and pattern design work, as well as regular awesome husband-ness.
I am thankful for my pup. Ollie’s been an amazing addition to our lives over the past half-year, and he makes me laugh every day. I couldn’t be happier having him in my life (even if he has chewed up a knitting needle or two… *grumble, grumble*)
I am thankful for this blog- and it’s readers! It’s been a really fun (sometimes difficult) and interesting exercise to write something (hopefully) interesting and (sometimes) funny every other day for almost three years, and I’m looking forward to keeping it going. Being able to share my passion with all of you lovely people is fantastic! You’re the best! (And, there’s so many of you!)
Happy Thanksgiving! What are you thankful for?
