Giving Thanks

It’s that time of year again when we reflect on our blessings and reach out to family and friends.

As has become custom for me, I’ve purchased a Heifer Knitter’s Basket in honor of all my knitting friends and in appreciation of the may ways that knitting has enriched my life.

Heifer InternationalBut that’s not all. In the spirit of giving, I’m running a raffle for a free copy of Gloria fingerless mitts. These mitts are knitted from a single skein of Quince & Co Piper (50% superfine Texas merino, 50% kid Texas mohair).

Wishing you all reasons to be thankful every day of the year!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you too! I would knit them for my sister, Sue, who lives in Minneapolis. I think she needs them more than me!!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone…my recipient would be my new daughter-in-law, who is truly one of MY blessings!

  3. I’d knit them for my friend Barb, who is in the hospital with a knee replacement and been knitting lots of fingerless gloves there for charity. If for some reason I can’t knit them, I’d give the yarn and pattern to her, because I know she’ll get them done!

  4. I remember seeing them in an earlier post. They are beautiful. Enjoy your day today. I am currently working on a corrugated rib sweater that has 50/50 merino mohair base with knit picks orange presciosa. I originally had a cardigan inmind, all in pe piece. I did not like the texture on 7 needles so I put on straits needs and size 4. Much nicer with an even texture. I have to work tonight so my husband and I are having a quiet day today.

  5. I would knit them for my best friend! Happy Thanksgiving Ann! Thank you for your generosity and for all that you do to make us all better knitters! Your patterns are awesome and you make knitting so much fun! You Rock!

  6. My dear neighbor who is always willing to help out and does. She does not knit but loves and admires hand knits.

  7. I would knit them for my ex daughter in law who has no family except 3 small grandchildren under 7 yrs of age and lost her only child ( the childrens’ father and my grandson) August of this year in a car wreck. She was adored by her son and he always provided a great Christmas for her so our entire family including my son and his current wife have vowed to give her a great Christmas in his honor.

  8. You are always so generous, Ann, both with your talent and you gift giving. I would knit them for my future daughter in law who walks a distance to get to her nursing job.
