Well, this has started arriving in my mailbox in anticipation of my Christmas present. It is roving... waiting to be spun into beautiful yarn. (I guess I should say it is waiting for me to attempt to spin it into something resembling yarn... that might be closer to the truth!) I'm getting pretty excited!
I also received the yarn I ordered to start the Bubble cardigan that I want to make. I know I should wait to cast this sweater on until I've made more progress on the first sweater, but I am itching to try the k5b stitch that had me so defeated earlier!!! Maybe tomorrow during football. I haven't done any knitting these past few days. I have just totally been enjoying the time with the kids, playing games, shopping, hanging out etc... It's sad to think they all have to go back to school tomorrow!
Our neighbor has been gone the past few days, and K was taking care of the llamas and the kittens while she was gone. The kitties have gotten so big!! Here's the little calico that we picked up for her in Galena. Isn't she a cutie?
It's been very cold here lately. We got some snow a few days ago which has lasted this whole time! Sumo loves to be out in the snow, but I really have gotten to kind of dread it. Must be my age! Winter used to be my favorite season when I was a kid. Now I dream of the day I can fly south for the winter!!
I've been so enjoying hearing and reading about how several of you have been trying the recipes I've shared and been enjoying them! Some have even added them to their own family favorites! I LOVED seeing the Swedish Tea Ring on Danielle's blog! It made me smile. The Tea Ring is a staple around our house during the holiday season!
Until Next Time....
