Christmas prep has cut into my knitting time. The only WIP I have is the dumpster fire ornament. The flames are done, so all that is left is the dumpster. Hopefully I’ll get it done this week. If not I’ll get it done for next year.
Do you know what goes perfectly with a snow day? Cinnamon swirl sourdough. This bread was gone in less than 24 hours. It is destined to become part of our regular bread rotation.
John’s socks are done! I tried to wind yarn for Christmas socks for me, but I ended up with two skeins of yarn barf. I’m thinking the yarn is cursed.
We woke up to a lot of snow yesterday morning. The kids were excited to get out and play. John was excited to try out his new snowblower. I was excited to have an excuse to drink tea by the fire. It worked out well for all of us.
I hope you were able to spend the weekend doing something that excites you too.
This year I got a Chromatic Yarns Advent calendar. I love Hannah’s yarns, and was excited to have lots of mini skeins to try out. I have not been dissapointed.
All of her yarns are Dungeons and Dragons inspired, so the extras she included have been dice. I don’t play D&D, but I do homeschool, and the dice have been a fun way to work on addition and subtraction.
Health Update: We don’t have COVID! We are recovering from colds. Thank you for all of your kind messages. I’m now looking forward to catching up on all of your blogs.
I finished two small projects this week. I finished mittens for my sister and fulled patches for my MIL. I totally forgot to take pictures of the mittens, but the second mitten looks just like the one I told you about last week.
I was going to knit my MIL new slippers for Christmas, but she insists that there is plenty of life left in her slippers, she just needs to patch them. I used leftover wool and knit two patches. After fulling I gave them her with the understanding that if she is unable to patch them I’ll make her a new pair.
