Then it can be surprisingly sunny with jasmine flowering.
Emily is home from UVic so that's means cookies
We had a full on gingerbread house.
Traditional peanut butterscotch squares.
A full buffet of shortbread and butter tarts. The Christmas cake was a bit not up to scratch. Can I blame my new oven?
And on Christmas morning, I had my favourite cookies (oatmeal date) for breakfast.
I ordered a tree skirt for my MIL from my best friend from nursing school. She did a wonderful job and there was a bit of gushing.
Then, apparently, turning a heel is more than I can manage in the holiday jumble. It took several tries, but I was not going to be beaten! They are in the sock blockers right now and represent the sixth pair I knit this year, meeting my Operation Sock Drawer goal and on time.
Scott's sweater looked foolishly short when he tried it on. I knit the medium, but used the large size length. It took a bath on Christmas morning and got some serious blocking.
It barely dried before he left on Sunday, but I think he likes it.
I was gifted a wonderful skein of Eco Duo which I shall make into a Zuzu's Petals shawl/cowl. If it turns out, I'll make a similar one for the sister in law who so carefully chose this for me.
I wish you a safe and happy holiday.
