I have fallen for tweed hats. Well, more specifically, I'm making the same hat over and over again in various tweedy yarns. The pattern is plain, but the tweed keeps it interesting.

Turkey Day was in New Jersey this year and it was a blast. There was a yummy turducken, with various sides.I did a moderate mount of baking, as planned.The top tier has pecan and lemon bars and the bottom tier has PB&J cookies and dulce de leche bars.

We had the traditional Handknit Sock Reunion:
It came complete with our very own party crasher.Doggie saw the crowd - and the camera - and wanted in on all the fun.

While we were out of town, I finished the yellow socks:
And started some new ones, this time in Kroy.
The main color is a sort of grayish brown called "flax" and the contrast is the coal black leftover from the socks from the last post. Thrifty thrifty...
