Thanksgiving Sock

That right there my friends, is a sock that is dead to me. Noro taiyo sock yarn that just pulled apart mid stitch. Tiny needles and tiny yarn are not my friend. I cast these on two days ago and I can only knit about 4 rows before the pain starts. I’ve been stopping after 6 and taking breaks.

I should have let the kitten keep the ball when she stole it. She obviously knew it was going to be trouble.

In better news, I cheated and got a Greenberg turkey this year. I did boxed stuffing yesterday and scooped it out into balls for baking today. All the crisp edges! I’m trying this mushroom recipe and doing some quick sautéed green beans. Such a lazy day!

As I’m making the plates, I’ll be throwing enchilada sauce, cream cheese, turkey, and chiles in the slow cooker for some enchilada soup later.

My husband is going to the farm for the weekend, so I’ll be tossing my stash and looking for a different project. While I contemplate burning that sock above.

For those of you that are new, that was code for I’ll look at patterns on Ravelry and take naps. Then I’ll run around for an hour straightening up my mess before he gets home.

Happy Thanksgiving y’all!

  1. Maybe Piper Marie has a future in detecting bad yarn/patterns. Million dollar idea–she works knitting circles to save knitters the frustration, and if she “rescues” some yarn from a knitter that is right for you, all the better.

    I don’t think of that as a cheat turkey, but rather a different way of doing things. We do what works for us in the time and circumstances in which we’re each living. Our family had a smoked turkey from a bbq place for Thanksgiving, and it was a great success.

    Have you seen the movie yet? xoxo

    1. I could rent her out!

      I liked having and easy day. It’s just the two of us, so never too big anyway. Next year, I need to find a deep fried Cajun turkey.

      I’m glad you had a nice Thanksgiving.
