Giving Thanks

Well. I didn't expect to have so many days without a post, but it was a busy Thanksgiving week. Wednesday afternoon we picked up Anemone from college and went to a tree farm. We haven't had a real tree in a long time, so it was really exciting to go pick one out and cut it ourselves.
(The tree farm had goats. Best tree farm ever.)
It was good to have a bit of a break. We all took the whole weekend pretty slow, just chilling out and eating food. I also had a lot of time to think about the things I'm most thankful for-for the obvious things like my family and friends and financial stability, but also for everything I've gotten from this blog over the past year.

I've known for years that the online knitting community was vast and welcoming, but it's completely different experiencing it from the inside than as an outside observer. You all have welcomed me, encouraged me, taught me, and made me a better knitter-and in some ways, a better person. This community is full of people with different skills, experiences, desires, and beliefs, which seems incredibly obvious, but it all comes to life much more when you're inside, taking part.

So I just wanted to thank all of you for being so amazing. I hope you all had a good weekend, and got to see or speak with people you love.


  1. Goats!! Best tree farm ever, indeed.

    Glad that you had a good Thanksgiving weekend, and thank you for sharing these lovely words about our community. Your blog is one of my favorite reads, and I'm glad to hear that it's been such a positive force for you as well.

  2. Sounds like you had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend and I couldn't agree more about the thing you said about the online knitting community. I'm very grateful to be part of it.
