I’m still awaiting the return of my laptop, crossing my fingers that it will come home in full working order.

In the meantime, I went to the Knitters’ Review retreat, and it was as wonderful as ever. I am perennially astounded by the wonderful teachers, merchants, and guests Clara rounds up every year. The classes were a treat, the stash lounge was staggering, and the marketplace just plain floored me. I got to spend time with my dear knitting friends–which is my strongest draw to return each year–and to travel to such a beautiful part of the country. I’ll try to be patient as I wait for the next retreat, but I’m sure I’ll fail. I’d like to do the whole thing over again right now right now.

Thanksgiving with my family was wonderful. My Mom is still responding well to chemo and in great health, and it was great to come together and celebrate as a family.

Tomorrow, we’re getting together for Booksgiving. I’m cooking like mad, and we’ve been cleaning and sorting through books and doing all of those outdoor chores that build up at this time of year. I’m not quite sure how we’ll get everything done, but we’ll try. And even if we don’t, an evening with friends and family with good food and wine and lots of free books can’t be bad, you know?

I hope you’re all well, and I hope my camera and I can get reacquainted with my laptop in a couple of days so I can show you some portion of my doings these last several weeks.

    Did lots of yarn follow you home from the retreat?
    Some photos of your doings would be a lovely treat.
