Boo Knit and Carpet of Fire...


In all the fray of the pseudo-move, I never posted a photo of my Morticia Mystery KAL by Boo Knits after it was finished.  It has lots... and lots... and lots of beads.  They reminded me of caviar... mixed in the multi-layered blue of the Madelinetosh Light yarn in the colorway Esoteric.

Esoteric:  Understood only by those few with pertinent interest and knowledge; belonging or pertaining to an inner or select circle. ~ per New Webster’s Dictionary.


I still hope to get some better photos when there is more light... and less rain.  (Plus, the help of my daughter.)  The Little Men & Co. will be heading in for their Christmas visit soon.  I can hardly wait.


The rain has knocked down almost all the beautiful leaves...


They look like a carpet of fire... So beautiful...

"The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace."  Numbers 6:24-26

Wishing you a holiday full of appreciation for the treasures of every day life...

I can see the smile on your face! What joy when those Little Men pull in with their "drivers"!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Tanna!

Tanna, My heart goes out to you! Someone told me this... let's see if I can say it so you understand.

Jesus died on a horrible death on a Friday.
Saturday, he was in the tomb, waiting to rise up.
He rose from the dead on a Sunday and ascended gloriously into Heaven.

You've had your "Friday". "Sunday", seems to far way.
But we all have to wait, for today is our "Saturday".

Oh, how I know the feeling of anticipation for those little hugs and kisses. It's the BEST!

Beautiful photos!! Love the shawls, but all your shawls are gorgeous. Our red leaves were not nearly as red as yours! Have a good thanksgiving :)

TexWisGirl said...

the shawl is beautiful. so are those red leaves. ours are mostly down, too. and soggy. :) but i am glad for that.

Deborah Hamilton said...

Both the shawl and the leaves are beautiful. The shawl is aptly named because only a lace knitter would appreciate the true beauty of it.

Kerin said...

Stunning! Love the color, and the pattern is so delicate, and feminine. Beautiful job!!

Oh, I can just imagine that you are so looking forward to visit's with your family.

Have a safe, and blessed Thanksgiving :)

Laurie said...

Amy at love made my home said...

Your shawl is beautiful Tanna, you are such a wonderful crocheter. I hope that you have a wonderful time with your family and that it is a Thanksgiving to remember. Perhaps you were meant to have one more in your bungalow for some reason. xx

Sandy said...

Your shawl is really lovely, as always, Tanna.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving and that it is a very special one this year!
Blessings to you~

Amanda said...

I knew from the first pic that that was "Morticia." The name suited that shawl perfectly. It turned out beautiful! Love seeing all those beautiful leaves on the ground. Ours have been gone for a couple of weeks now, so I enjoyed getting to see yours. ;-) Counting down the days. Not long now!!!! Love you so big! xoxo

Wow Tanna, the shawl is gorgeous. I wish we lived closer so you could teach me.

Susan said...

The color of your latest Boo is simply breathtaking. Absolutely beautiful. I feel your excitement with the soon arrival of your family. Enjoy it all.

podso said...

Maybe an unexpected Thanksgiving in the old house and some Christmas too? Wishing you happy holidays together wherever you are … and love the shawl with its hues. And did you lie the ground to get your amazing leaf shots? :-) I've gotten your shawl out now that the weather is cold. It's such a comfort.

steph said...

Oh Tanna ~ What a lovely creation you have made. The color and pattern are just beautiful.

Only God can paint a carpet like the one you've captured.

Blessing Tanna, as you enjoy this Thanksgiving with family.

Hugs, Wanda

That is one gorgeous shawl, Tanna! Have a fabulous Thanksgiving. It's hard to believe that December is almost upon us, isn't it?

janice smith said...

Such a lovely, lovely shade of blue and a stunning pattern! Oh, Tanna, I am just catching up on all the goings-on at your place these past few weeks. What a roller coaster ride it has been for you! It will be such a good story to tell once all is resolved but I know these must be tough days. Keep the faith, friend! You inspire me so! xo, janice

Mereknits said...

Wishing you a most wonderful Thanksgiving Day for you and your sweet family.

Love the Boo Knits shawl. It is so beautiful. You make the most beautiful shawls that I have ever seen! You Rock.

Blessings always sweet friend.

Betsy Brock said...

beautiful wrap....beautiful leaves!

Happy Thanksgiving! xo

Betty@SouthernGrace said...

Such a lovely, delicate wrap. You are so talented. And I absolutely love the photos of the leaves. VERY impressive! I'm wondering if you were laying on the ground to capture that?? :)

Pride In Photos said...

Happy Belated Thanksgiving Tanna my friend! Could that shawl be any more beautiful...I think not. Such a talented lady you are. The carpet of leaves...what a gorgeous gift you were given...stay blessed. Laurie

Tricia Buice said...

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Tanna! I'm finally coming up for air and starting to decorate. I think the shawl with beads is gorgeous. And I love you have visitors coming for Christmas! Hope the house sells soon so you can relax a bit. Blessings to you!

Catherine said...

Dear Tanna, I love this shawl too!!
It is very elegant with all of the little beads of "caviar". It is very delicate looking.
The fall is a beautiful time of year.
Thank you for the blessing. I pray that your Thanksgiving was filled with joy and happy memories.
Blessings dear and a hug, Catherine xo

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Beautiful shawl! I love the color and I'll bet it would go with many other colors, too.

Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful! Take care and have fun getting ready for your little visitors!

Janette's Sage/Simply Your Decor said...

beautiful...and the whole world will look great when those boys arrive..enjoy, enjoy!!

Debbie said...

I love the piece, and I love that color. It is a near perfect match (as far as I can tell) to a chair in my den which drives the accent color of the room. I shall henceforth call it my "esoteric" room when I need to feel all decorator-y.

I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I had meant to get around to visiting but have been sidelined with the sudden illness and death of a friend this past few weeks. Kind of knocked the wind right out of me.

Jean | Delightful Repast said...

That is soooo beautiful, it's enough to make me take up knitting. Well, almost. You see, any kind of needlework/knitting/crocheting makes me crosseyed and crabby!
