I wish a very happy Thanksgiving to everyone and a great start to the holiday season! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year and here is a (no way near complete) list of things I’m thankful for:
- a loving family and friends
- a fun job
- helpful coworkers
- free time to devote to creativity
- rainy weather
- pumpkin pie (because its my favorite food of all time)
In August I moved to back to San Francisco and have been able to explore the beauty of this creative city. It’s been nice to have a day job that allows me a lot of flexibility to do many of the fun, random things that this city has to offer. I love my job and my roommates and everything is good in the world. Yay!
With the rush of holidays coming on I wanted to come up with a fast and meaningful gift idea. Dishcloths are quick and easy but universally useful. They are great to make when I find a cotton yarn that just needs to be in my yarn basket. I found this square pattern on Pinterest and this leaf pattern on Tricksy Knitter a few months ago. I can’t wait to make a pile of them to hand out to family and friends. Wrap it up with a cute soap or a candle and call it a relaxation kit. Or box it up with Mrs. Meyers dish soap with a pair of rubber gloves for someone who loves their kitchen. What other kits can you think of? I’d love to hear some ideas!
