What's a girl to do?

We are heading out to my sisters home for Thanksgiving, and with a 7 hour drive, I can really get a lot of knitting in. Especially with the 3 children confined to their seats!!

Hmmm, there is this. I know it doesn't look like much, but it will be the sweater I put on in the a.m. over my jammies........or the sweater I throw on while I am eating all of my ice in the dead of winter! The yarn is Classic Elite Charmed. 85% cashmere, 15% mohair..........feels great, and will replace the grey cashmere sweater, with the holes, that I wear every morning!


Then there is this. This is also an easy knit. Good for the car. I purchased this from Sarah, at Knot Another Hat this summer. I should have made this sweater a while ago, because now little Hannah is at least a month old and I still haven't given her a baby gift! I should really get this done.

Then there is this. I started this last summer. I really don't like it, but that is only because of my yarn choice. I used something from my stash that has angora in it, and I hate the shedding! I should just frog it, but the other side of me HAS to finish it. Just something about frogging I don't like, but should......I just wonder if maybe it will be cute over a jean jacket. Hmmmm. Well, I think I will throw all in the car.....who knows, the 7 hour trip may take 10 with all of the traffic around NYC. (yay!)

And this is one of the things that I am most thankful for. Little hands that made this little drawing............Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Wow, those are lots of projects. The cashmere/mohair yarn sounds lovely. And I really like your version of the We Call Them Pirates Hat. They're addictive hats, aren't they? I've already begun a second.

PS: Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such kind words.
PPS: I love that monkey you made, as well!
