I just received a Honey Baked turkey, green bean casserole, potatoes au gratin and a chocolate/nut pie from georgiaskydiver's family!!! Yum. I can't wait.
I decided that since we were going to have Thanksgiving and early Christmas in Indiana with the in-laws, I would crochet an afghan for my mother-in-law. I found a pattern for an absolutely GORGEOUS one, made from Chenille yarn. It looks super soft and cozy for those cold Indiana nights.
Ummm, who decided Chenille yarn would be $6.50 for a skein? Each skein is 75 yards and the pattern calls for 900!!!! OUCH! I could buy her a damn blanket for that! So, instead, I downgraded my pattern and found a very nice pattern called 'Red Velvet' that is made with worsted weight lamb's wool - $2.00 a skein. :)
