Preparing for Thanksgiving

Thank goodness tomorrow is Thanksgiving.

Reading Christmas romances and knitting hats for
Yarn Along Wednesday

Because I've already started my Christmas reading.

Actually, I'm hanging my head in holiday shame because not only have I begun the tradition of ignoring my ever-growing To-Do list by obsessively reading Christmas romances, I've even been listening to Christmas carols.  I know, it's shameful.  Shameful!  I'm a firm believer in celebrating one holiday at a time but....  I just couldn't wait this year.

I did take a short break from holiday romance reading to check another Christmas gift off the To-Knit list.  That's four gifts down, only 4,000 more to go.  Four gifts down before Thanksgiving!  I think that deserves an hour or so spent with a cheesey Christmas romance novel and a glass of wine.

But before I hit the bottle too hard, I should probably go get the Thanksgiving baking done.  Wish me luck.  I'll need it!

Wishing you all a very happy, safe, drama-free Thanksgiving!

(And don't forget to join me over at Ginny's for Yarn Along Wednesday.)


  1. I couldn't wait this year either. I've been watching Hallmark movies since the weekend! I do like that hat - what pattern is it?

    1. Oh, me too! I LOVE Hallmark Christmas movies. The hat is just something I made up. It's a 2x2 rib with a mock cable thrown in on the knit stitches every 4th row. Very simple.

  2. I've been listening to Christmas music since around Halloween. I don't even bother to hide it anymore. :-)

  3. a beautiful knit, i hope you enjoyed your thanksgiving!!! i decorated my house early this year - good thing as i am still in a food coma from yesterday and have done nothing today!!!

    i have been watching christmas shows and i have no shame!!!

  4. beautiful knitting and I haven't read a Christmas romance this year but I like the hopefulness of it all!
