It's Beginning to TASTE A Lot Like Christmas!

Ciara and Cian's first time handling icing:
We spent this weekend getting into the Christmas spirit. The tree was trimmed, windows were lighted and decorated, presents were bought and hid and cookies upon cookies were baked. We even went ice skating in the town center - even though it's still 3 degrees above 0 Celsius, we bundled up and braved the crappy rental shoes and show-off kids flying past. It was Cian's and Dave's first time and they both gliding around in no time! Here's a crappy but cute picture from my cell phone :)Lastly, there's a running joke between Erica and me about my fear of knitting with the luxury sock yarn in my posession. I let it marinate and coat my feet with the 6 Euro stuff I buy in the shop on the corner. Still pretty colours and great yarns, but not all of the luxury stuff that I've been dying to get. Friday, I received my 2.25 circulars and wanted to cast on immediately. I looked around and my eyes fell on my new merino sock yarn from Fleece Artist. So, here is photographic evidence of my willingness to wrap my feet in luxury fibers.

I'm almost finished with the ribbing - can't turn back now!!

  1. Oh, cuz you have never ripped out an entire blanket or sweater... :)

  2. Mmmm, cookies! I may have to break out the baking juju next year and make my frosted sugar cookies again. It's been years...

  3. Beautiful color on the socks, keep progress reports on blog. Please.

  4. Oh I know what you mean about luxury sock yarn, I don't use it either. For some reason I can't justify such wonderful stuff on my feet. It's such a shame-I can't wait to see how yours come out.
