Happy Thanksgiving, Canada

Hope all you fellow Canadians had a nice Thanksgiving today. We went to my BIL's for turkey dinner. Had to do it early this afternoon. Hubby is switching trucking companies and has a 7+ hour drive tonight. He starts his training tomorrow morning. The new company puts him in a hotel room for two nights and pays for his meals and travel.
I finally finished my second dishcloth. It's made with Bernat Handicrafter in Hot Purple, just a pretty standard basketweave pattern.

I also picked up three skeins of the cotton for three dishcloths for one of the people on my Christmas list. This is Soft Violet, Floral Prints, and Robin's Egg.

I started nephew's cabled baby sweater this weekend, too. It's knitting up quite fast, and I really like how it's looking. It's only two cable panels, and they're really easy to remember, so I don't need to look at the pattern. I did take a couple of pictures of the progress as of last night, but both were out of focus once transferred to the computer. I really need a new camera. I don't think I can wait til Christmas. I'll try to snap another picture or ten for next post. One should surely be in focus.

This is Fire Prevention week. Tonight is the parade, so I'll be taking the kids to that in awhile. Tomorrow night is fire truck rides. Sometimes I try to skip that because the line ups are so long. I figure their dad is in the fire department, so they've been on fire truck rides a lot more than most kids. I'm relieved that the dance on Saturday night has been deemed casual. Normally the men have to wear their uniforms, and there are no jeans allowed. I only own two skirts and one jacket/pants set and have one terrible pair of sandally shoes that can pass for dressy. Now I don't have to worry about it.

Happy knitting!

Your dishcloth is great, what a vibrant purple! I like the colours too...what does the middle one look like knit up? Is it striped or flecks of colour? I can't wait to see pictures of the sweater. Hope that the Fireman functions were fun. ;-)
Oh yes, and hope hubby (and you) like the new company that he is working for.

Love the dishcloth, the colour and pattern! One thing I was thinking the other night as I was doing the dishes was that I wish I had brought some dishcloth cotton to Korea with me so I could make some dishcloths for myself. Haven't seen any of that over here either...might have to see if I can get my mom to send me a couple of skeins or three.
