Merry Christmas!!!

 A special Merry Christmas to my blog followers.  The bread pudding is in the oven, the potato soup is simmering, and Carl and I are waiting for son to wake up so we can open presents!!!!
Made candies and cookies.  (PS to DL:  the batch of your candy I made is over half gone!!!  Sam loves it!) Pictures are of my little gingerbread men, with some turned upside down to look like reindeer!!!  Sam did the decorating.  (He was not really into it, but too bad!)

A change of pace

This morning, I actually sat down at the sewing machine, and made two microwave baked potato bags.  I am gifting them to my walking gals. Boy, do we have fun traipsing the paths at Runge, or burning a path at the Mall.  I found this on Pinterest.  It's been kitchen tested and Carl approved.

Also, while I was in Columbia on Thursday, DH got the Christmas tree up AND decorated!!!  I'm going to have to keep him around.

 We had some pretty snow this morning.  I think it's colder in the basement where my sewing machine is, than outside!!!

Unikatissima December KAL

We are halfway through the "Advent Calendar" KAL.  I don't know about this lace knitting, but I'm doing it anyway.  It will definitely need to be blocked!!!

 Of course the above picture is upside down, even though it's right side up on photo stream.  Below is a close up of last few days.

Knitvent 2013; other FO's

I bought an ebook for Knitvent (a take on Advent). I've only completed one garment, because I'm also doing another KAL lace shawl!!  I also made another cowl with some leftover yarn, and have enough to make a pair of fingerless mitts.  Not enough hours in the day...
