Yarn Cake and Mud Pie

Now that I'm recovering from 4 days off from work and the holiday... I should be back to speed with my posting and hopefully overtime with my knitting! I have finished dad's scarf, I will be blocking tonight. I have barely been home long enough to block since I finished it on Wed!
On Friday I went to visit (blog-free) Enid with the lovely Moriah. We had too much fun winding her yarn into cakes, I now really need to invest in a winder. I thought I had upgraded with the Nostepinde that I won, but when you have a lot of winding to do a winder is sooo worth it. Yes, I love the old-school beauty of the Nostepinde, but when I have multiple hanks to wind, I'll be calling up Enid, or better yet, buying my own winder thank-you-very-much. I also casted on for the next gift on my list, the Purl Scarf from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts (Joelle Hoverson). I thought a US size 13 would work, but my gauge turned out to be too tight and I will need to pick up some bigger needles.

Also, here's a cute idea that I found last week for a homemade Thanksgiving... On The Purl Bee Whit's Knits Felted Thanksgiving Knit. It's totally going on my list for NEXT year.
