Good afternoon. It has been a beautiful day here. A gentle breeze and mid 80's for the high today. I woke up this morning and it was 48 outside. Love that crisp morning air. Gets my blood flowing.
I have started on more mini sweaters. Actually, I started on them last night. I already have 2 done and a third one started. I figured I needed at least 11 more of them for family and friends. I would like to do twice that many and give them to my Prayer Shawl ladies too. I will see how it goes. Since we are taking a road trip next week, I will have some knitting time in the car and I should be able to complete at least 2 on the way up and on the way back. Now that I have the pattern memorized, I don't need to look at my paper anymore.
I was asked for the pattern link...........................sorry, but the pattern I am using is from a magazine. However............I did peruse Ravelry and found this one on there. Very similar to mine. For next year, I am thinking of doing other little items for trees. Here is a bunch of mini's for the tree. I will most definitely start earlier next year too.
I baked a loaf of bread today. We are having this:
For dinner tonight. I thought some fresh homemade bread would taste mighty good with it. Hubby got it all in the crockpot for me as I was out visiting my mom when cooking time was supposed to start.
While at my mom's we finished this today.
Yes, I know there is a piece missing. I found it after I had taken the puzzle apart and put it in the box. I did add the missing piece to the box. This is what mom and I do most of the time I go and visit. We work puzzles together. It gives us a common interest that she can still participate in.
Tonight, I am going to look through Pinterest. I am looking for healthy ideas for Christmas/New Years snacks. I want to make my own but do not want it to be so high in sugar it puts us into diabetic comas LOL. I will make my normal Chex Mix Party Mix. But instead of all the fudge, rolo pretzels, rice krispie treats and butterscotch haystacks, I want to find healthier alternatives. I am sure it will be a challenge but a good learning experience for me. I may have to email our nutritionist and ask for her assistance on this.
If any of you have healthy ideas for me................let me know. I am super excited to try new things this year.
Until next time....................happy crafting!
