Happy thanksgiving!

As I sit here with a cup of hot tea, I give thanks to making it through another rough year in this economy and still having a roof over our heads, for all the fantastic opportunities I have had traveling to new places and old while teaching and making new friends in the process. I am blessed to have so many wonderful and supportive friends all over the country and a few places beyond, I love ya!

Today I am also grateful that I finished knitting my handwarmers because they are keeping me toasty on this cold overcast morning. The problem with living in 100 year old brick buildings with big windows and high ceilings on overcast days is it can be pretty chilly inside.

These are knit from possum wool that I bought in New Zealand in April. They are fuzzy, soft and warm, the pattern is free on Ravelry.
