The new Harmony guides

For those of us who have long been fans of the Harmony guides,Lace_eyelets
they've just been republished by Interweave Press (edited by Erica Knight).  They are beautifully done.  Many kudos to Interweave and Erika Knight for doing such a great job with these good old reference books.  These are in the shop, just in time for a great holiday present for your favorite knitter (maybe you). 
They're a nice size and would fit handily into your knitting bag...and something I would rarely say about a reference book...they're pretty, too...very pleasing to the eyes.  I'm planning on stashing one of each for the pile on my nightstand.Cablesarans_3

Seems that this incredibly beautiful weather we've been having is going to change, just in time for Thanksgiving Day.  Snow is predicted for Weds and Weds night, so we're hoping for a snowy day to sit in front of the wood stove and reflect on all we have to be grateful for.  Among the many things I'm grateful for:

  • A great family and home

  • Our good health

  • Great pets

  • Great friends

  • A fun business and all the many friends it has brought into my life

  • That I can now fit into jeans one size smaller

  • That I can stick turkey pot pies into the oven on Thursday, open a can of cranberry sauce, and spend the rest of my day spinning and knitting.

A friend from the shop sent me this fun holiday greeting.  I don't know who to credit for this, and I hope it's OK to use it, because I sure think it's fun.  I share it now with you:Newturke

May your stuffing be tasty;
May your turkey plump;
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

That is hilarious! I love the photo!
What a great list to be thankful for... life is grand. I too will have a pot pie or some version therein (Mooshoo delivery!)and get to spend my day spinning and playing the fiber diva. If it is nice I am going to go be thankful at the beach!
HappY Thanksgiving.
