Today is a day about giving thanks and family so I would like to introduce you to my mom Peggy.  Since closing the store I have been able to travel three times to see her and on the most recent trip my son Kyle joined me.

 In September my mom gave us a BIG scare which led us to relocating her to a beautiful Assisted Living Community for Alzheimer/Dementia, we feel so grateful to have found such a wonderful place.  She has stabilized and gained some much needed weight; we don’t mention that part to her though. :-)

My knitting lately has been what I refer to as Frequent Flyer Hats, since that’s what I’ve been taking on the plane. One of them is being modeled by the latest addition to the family; my great nephew Nathan.  It is a stylish ear flap hat made with Spud & Chloe Sweater in Root beer with Lorna’s Laces Shepherds worsted in camouflage for the band, braided ties and pom-pom (it’s a free pattern I found on Ravelry called Cozy). The others are gifts so I can’t post pictures just yet.
 With the holiday season upon us I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving and joyous holiday season.

Love, Julie
