More knitting and crocheting

Hello my lovely bloggers,

I've been on a mission of making and finishing all yarn projects and having so much fun! I have actually been making time each day just for me and it feels so good!

Thanksgiving is almost here in the U.S., so I have been baking and prepping for the big day on Thursday! Lots of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, peas and all the naughty pies and cakes will be consumed! Can't wait. We will have TEN this year which is almost everyone minus three who can't be with us this year.  I will share photos after our Thanksgiving.

I purchased a wonderful pattern from Cherryheart called "Peek-a-boo" Blanket.
It was so much fun to crochet and I made it to match a baby hat I had knit, here's a "peek"

                       As you can see, I used Sirdar yarn, nice to work with, love the color!!

                       This is the knitted baby hat, with a motif by the talented kiwi yarns

                                                              Blanket with border

                                                         all ready for a baby gift

This really was a fun blanket to make and can be made in larger sizes also. This is Pram size 31"x22" with border.

Next up will be some mitten making for my granddaughters, but I will have to start after Thanksgiving.

                                                        This is the yarn and pattern

                                          I'm excited to knit them up with this beautiful yarn

So as I said I have baking some yummy sweets, meringues, peanut butter kisses, Toll House cookies and two batches of cranberry orange relish......yummy goodness!

                                                     Meringues and chocolate chips

                                                    Peanutbutter kisses

                                                                     Cranberry Relish

Tomorrow I pick up the 24lbs turkey, YIKES, then more chopping and prepping. I loved sharing all my recent busy days with all of you. Thanks so much for visiting me here.  I wish you all a peaceful week and weekend.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my U.S. friends ❤️
