Happy Thanksgiving...Early Morning Shopping Planned...Alpaca Fiber

My day started with the bird being prepped and put in the oven. With the smell of roasting turkey, I did a quick housecleaning, and prepared the veggies. With help from Pat, the potatoes, turnips, carrots, celery and onions for the stuffing, were all chopped and cut to the sizes I needed. I made bacon cheddar mashed potatoes with red potatoes, broccoli, turnip and carrots, 2 kinds of stuffing, 2 gravies, rolls, homemade cranberry sauce, and butternut squash. Dessert was apple pie a la mode and coffee. I skipped the last part. :)

After the loading of the dishwasher and meal clean up, I managed to Navajo ply 3/4 of a bobbin on the Minstrel. The drive band decided to snap, so that took some time to replace, but, it's working fine now. Tomorrow afternoon will be spent finishing the bobbin. The fiber is BFL from Spunky Eclectic in "Mandy". I still have one braid of the original three of that fiber to spin.

My alpaca fiber from Silver Sun Alpaca came in a couple of days ago, and my Loop order is on the way.

I'm heading to bed now so I can be at the stores for the 5 a.m. sales. I don't know if I will get any of the stuff on my list, but, I will check a few places out. If anyone is going to attempt the Black Friday Crazee, have fun.

My stomach is still full. Goodnight.

At least you got some spinning done. I got about nothing accomplished yesterday with cooking and company.

I got some knitting done in line while shopping today though!
