After Thanksgiving & Baby Shower items

Well, we survived Thanksgiving at my tiny house. Eleven people were here for the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. I did as much prep as possible before the big day, so I did manage to get about 45 minutes of knitting in while the 24 lb. turkey was roasting in the oven!


The day after Thanksgiving, I had a slice of pumpkin pie for breakfast! One of my traditions that I've been doing since I was a little girl! Then we decorated a little bit for Christmas.


My youngest daughter was invited to her friend's baby shower for a family member. I didn't want to send my daughter to the shower without a gift, so I whipped up this little baby cap.

I used a little bit of yarn from my leftover yarn & I did this on the magic loop. It was so easy & enjoyable that I'm making another cap for a toddler in the family.


My daughter came & went to the baby shower & she had a great time and she was so proud to tell the mother-to-be that the cap was hand-knitted by her mom. My daughter came home with cute party favors. Here's a cute candy pacifier. It was made from a jelly bean, a pink chocolate wafer & a life-saver. How cute is that!
