Lots to be thankful for . . .

A sure way to warm a knitter's heart is to do what my mom & G did yesterday. They came to dinner wearing the vests I'd knit for them! Originally, this project started when G asked for the Navaho Pullover from Knitting in America. When I finished the sweater, I had a fair amount of yarn left, so I ordered a bit more to make my mom a vest based on the same designs. The sweater is beautiful as written, but G found it much too warm to actually wear. So last year I turned it into a vest, which it seems is much more wearable. Take a peek at the backs as well . . .

Then, while playing games later in the afternoon, I finished the Voodoo Wrist Warmers.

Lots to be thankful for . . .
And that's just in my knitting life.
