I bet Wendi is thankful of something right now, because she's the winner of the Country/City contest to win a skein ofSeacoast Merino/Tencel sock yarn! Wendi, pick your color and e-mail me! I just looked at Wendi's blog and she has all the pictures posted of the yarn from the last SSYC Sock Yarn Club- so if you want to see them all (one is shown at left), take a look at her blog! Then sign up for the new club!
Perhaps its the crappy economy, or recovering from the food poisoning I had earlier this week, but I'm super thankful for many things this Thanksgiving. First, I'm thankful that I'm able to keep working despite a weary US economy, that my business is strong, and it helps me provide stability for my family. I'm thankful that my 104 temperature from Monday is GONE and I feel superhuman- isn't it weird how you feel amazingly wonderful after you recover from sickness? I'm thankful for my family- a wonderful husband who packed boxes until 1am this week, after working a full day and putting a toddler to bed, b/c I couldn't move. I'm thankful that I have a ridiculously happy, healthy son who lights up everytime I walk in the room. I'm thankful for every one of you who helps support me and my family by reading my blog, shopping at my small store, talking about your service on your blogs/Ravelry/at local knitting groups. Many of you have made a huge difference in my life by being vocal and telling others about my store, and I really can't thank you enough.
I hope you all have a lovely Thanksgiving holiday. And if you aren't in the US, I hope you just have a relaxing, knit-filled weekend- keep in mind that this is a long holiday weekend (from Thursday through Sunday) and your orders will be filled on Monday. I will be spending time with friends that I haven't seen in a decade, and family that I see often.
I do have one question for everyone- what one Thanksgiving dish do you really look forward to? For me, it's Joe's mom's roasted hubbard squash- heavy on the butter, salt and pepper.
