Steady as she goes. so steady as she goes

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was on the quiet side just my brother, David and I. I did make a yummy turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberry cornbread stuffing and a coconut custard pie for desert. I sent most of it home with my brother - David won't eat leftovers, calls it old food.

I am trying very hard to finish all the holiday scarves I am making for work - I am half done with Boss #1, 1/2 done with Princess, haven't started boss #2 and will make Boss Lady a headband - plus I still have to finish my RME Mittens. I finished mitten # 1 and am about 1/4 of the way thru mitten #2:

I really like this yarn, I want to buy myself 2 balls to make me mittens.

Speaking of the Ravelry Mitten Exchange, mine came today from Annaknits:

RME Gloves 001
Aren't they pretty? I love this yarn.

I really need to get back to knitting and stop playing with the computor

He's a fine figure of a man, and handsome too....

Just a quick note to show off the wonderful goodies I received yesterday as part of the Ravelry Coffee exchange:

Isn't it great - look at that yarn, I love it and the mug and even Lavender chocolate - it smells heavenly! Thank you!

Progress on the mitten for the RME:
I am really enjoying these mittens - I mostly knit them during the Rangers games on TV - since I started them, the Rangers are undefeated! Someone on the Puck This group on Ravelry said knitting mittens was lucky, I plan on knitting a lot of mittens this season!

Discovering the Magic Loop has been awesome - I can finally knit mittens and (gasp!) socks without getting stabbed by those damn DPN's.
