Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I'm pretty excited about today. Outside of summer vacation and Christmas, Thanksgiving is my favorite time of year because I love food just as much as yarn. This Thanksgiving, I'm staying in Michigan and going over a friend's house for some good food and good times. Sadly, I won't be able to see my family, or eat the Guyanese food I've grown up with (Guyana is the only English speaking country in South America as were ruled by the British till 1965 when it got it's independence).
Right now I'm working on some baby sweaters for a coworker. Pictures later (my friend is asleep on the couch right now and I don't think he'll be happy to be awaken by my camera flash or clicking noises). The yarn is Knitpicks Swish in Red Pepper and Light Coral. At first I didn't like the colors together but knitted up in simple stripes changed my mind.
Anyway, I'm making a Green Bean Casserole. Truthfully, I've never even heard of this dish before until this year, while watching Food Network (one of my regular channels). Apparently it's as American as apple pie. It's pretty simple and easy to make but most people have told me that it taste great so I will attempt to be an American for a day and make this very traditional dish for a very traditional holiday.
