Time Flies When you Assassinate Pirates

So the last few weeks have just flown by. I think going to Disney World for a week helped a lot. Here are some of the best pictures from the trip. I managed to knit an entire pair of socks while waiting in line for the rides and characters. It's too bad they are too big for my feet...I guess Adam gets a pair of purple socks.

Finished socks, it's really hard to take a picture of your own foot.

The following week was Thanksgiving here, in the States. So, happy late Thanksgiving to all my American friends. This year, it turned out to be our turn to cook the turkey for Adam's family. (The reason we got tapped, is that was my hobby before I started knitting. I seriously considered culinary school at one point.)

This year we did the turkey a little differently than we have in past years. We grilled on our Big Green Egg. The Egg is my most prized possession (yes, even more than my Signature Needles!). You can cook just about anything on it and it all has this lovely smokey flavor. So, the night before, we brined the turkey and then put it on the Egg for about 3 hours. It was the best turkey ever! The rest of the food I made was good too, but I do those pretty regularly so it wasn't as spectacular as the turkey.

I know I said I don't knit for people outside of the family, but Evelyn asked me to make her teacher a pair of mittens for Christmas. I decided to use this really cute pattern from Martha Stewart and I am halfway there (I got one done). Unfortunately I haven't gotten much knitting done at all, except for the Disney socks.

I really need to crack on with Adam's sweater, I only have a few weeks left before Christmas. I have just let it languish, it has gotten so boring with miles and miles of stockinette. Plus, I haven't found a new show on Netflix to binge watch, which is really helpful when you have acres of stockinette to knit. The other big obstacle to my knitting, (it is a very selfish one) is Assassin's Creed Black Flag. We got a new Xbox One on Black Friday and I haven't done much of anything since then, except to play my game.
