This is just a quick Thanksgiving holiday update. Here are some items of note:

If you can believe it, I actually started and finished a project without interruption, rather than getting halfway done and putting it at the end of my mile long list of unfinished items. I made these gloves in a single weekend (from my own pattern, possibly available for sale once I get it tweaked a little more) from Rowan Classic Cashsoft Aran (fabulous fabulous fabulous) and Gedifra Fashion-Trend-something-or-other for the fur. (What a pain in my rear! The yarn is gorgeous but impossible to work with on small needles. I will probably use a different fur for the official pattern.)

I had a dream that I made myself a yellow afghan to match the couch, and when I woke up, it still seemed like a good idea, so here's the beginning of it. It will be rectangular, not round, when I'm done, it just looks like this because it's scrunched up on my needles. My Thanksgiving holiday with the in-laws might just be enough time for me to finish it.

New free pattern available for the Calvin Scarf.

The 2006 batch of Knit Knotes stocking stuffer notepads are now available.
