Happy Thanksgiving Eve, everyone! Tomorrow's the big turkey day, are you ready? I just about am, my mom and I have plans with some of our knitting group to gather together with food and all of our projects. I'm hoping that with their help and a Thanksgiving miracle, I'll finally start seaming my cardigan and get started on some of those ruffles.
I've been off work all week, taking a few of my days off before I lose them at the end of the year. That's given me time to enjoy a little extra sleep and to make sure I keep going strong on my NaNoWriMo efforts. There's just a few more days to go, and just a few thousand words to go as well. I'll probably still have story ideas left to explore, and some unfinished ones that I've started. But I'll get all 50,000 words typed up for sure.
And to go with my literariness, I have a new pair of glasses that I just picked up from the optometrist this afternoon.
They're purple! For the first time ever, my prescription has stayed stable enough that I didn't actually need new glasses. But I had the insurance to cover most of it, plus the flexible spending money that I had to use up (insurance and vacation time, gotta use them all before New Year's), so now I have two pairs of glasses that I can wear. It's kind of exciting. Plus, it means that next year, when insurance only covers lenses, I can put new lenses in one of the frames and still see wearing the others while they do it.
Sad news about my Fruit Loopy Shawl, though. The yarn was on Knit Picks the other day, but now that they're having their 'Big Sale', it's gone! It's like the colorway has ceased to exist. I'm going to have to find someone on Ravelry willing to sell it from their stash. But I'm still tempted to make a purchase from Knit Picks anyway. To comfort myself.
Speaking of comfort, I'm so looking forward to all of the food tomorrow! I wouldn't have believed it when I was a kid, but I think the dishes I'm looking forward to the most are the cranberry sauce and the Brussels sprouts. I know, weird, right? Of course, I'm also going to save room for pumpkin cheesecake and chocolate pie. For the sake of being festive.
What are you looking forward to eating tomorrow? And what will you be doing while everyone else watches football? For more WIP Wednesday posts, go to Tami's Amis.
