Before ODing on turkey, collard greens, yam, and dressing (not stuffing!), earlier this month I had a thing for this

Yum! Nice and wholesome!!

My brother got me started on this meal special. :oD I swear I ate this everyday for like two weeks! LOL I couldn't stop!

And I have been enjoying my ball winder! :o)

I have yet to use my swift. Because I've been too busy winding up regular balls of yarn into center pulls! Haha!
I just love making puurty yarn cakes!! :oD

This is the last day of the month, and guess who finally casted on last night for NOROvember!I had been wanting to do Norovember since I heard about it earlier this year, because as y'all know I just luv me some Noro.

I even remembered to sign up earlier this month and scouted out yarn and a pattern for my project. But I guess I really like the thrill of doing things last minute and just casted on! ;op It still counts as long as you CO in the month of November! Haha! :oD

See! Here is proof!
My wee beginnings of a cuff for a glove! ;op And the photo was taken with little light since it was all last minute too! :o

I tried the cuff on last night and discovered that I am going to have to go down in the size because I have very small wrists and want it snug. Also, I did not get gauge with this yarn, but insist on using the Shinano, so some adjustments are going to need to be made along the way for that. But I made it!!! Yah!!!

And in other fabulous news: Have you seen my new blog banner? :o)

I have been wanting to shake things up just a little bit, because I really do love the chocolate and red colors already here.

My talented friend Toni - TTD Creations designed my banner for me!! Check her out she loves to knit and crochet purses! Thank you Toni for my fabulous blog banner!

    The new banner is great! I've been busy making yarn patties too... I used my new ball winder to wind off as I frogged something the other day, it worked so perfectly!

    ... hey, all of a sudden I can't enter my name and URL to comment =( I have to use blogger which doesn't link anywhere good.

    the new banner is fiyah, and it fits you too! :-D all you need is an elephant in there for your sorority and you're set! ;-)

    i'm kinda tempted to try that tomatoe soup and what appears to be a grilled cheese sandwich. Lord knows i love some grill cheese, LOL!

    that yarn for the norovember is gorgeous. better late than never!

    Oh, I like the new banner with butterflies! Very original (unlike my standard typepad template, wah). And those gloves will be so cute! It knits up really nicely! I will have to check out the Shinano. So far I've been almost solely a Kureyon and Silk Garden/Lite girl, but this looks really pretty and tweedy. =D
    Ed said...
    Is that a toasted cheese sarnie and tomato soup?

    Makes me peckish just looking at it, in fact my salivary glands are in overdrive.
