Yes, there's been some knitting this week. I finished another toque, a baby hat, and the better part of Sock #2 in Pair #2 for my friend D.

|Baby Rollin' Beret by Wooly Wormhead|
|Simplicity Socks by Janel Laidman|
I managed another sketch for my Joggles.com
class, "Outline Drawing and Embroidery" with Susan Sorrell. I struggled with perspective, but in the end I rather like this one:
|Books on the Kitchen Table|
And I worked in my sketchbook to express a favourite applique motif on paper. This is a naupaka
flower for Hawaiian applique, which I found -- to my surprise -- at Martha Stewart.com
|Paper-cut applied to printed page|
|Page with motif overlaid painted page|
|Motif as a stamp, acrylic on paper|
I find this sort of thing very intense so today as a break, I knit on the second "Simplicity" sock, and dug out my veggie patch (tomatoes, sweet peas, herbs) in preparation for winter. I moved my 2 surviving raspberries from the south side of the house to the east side of the garage in the hopes they'll like that better next year. And I listened to Pastors Joel Osteen and Rick Warren on Oprah's new Life Class series while I knit. With a good walk thrown in this morning, it's been a lovely day!
Love the sock! The hats are great too! Happy Thanksgiving to you and the rest of your family :))
