The arrow shows where I was last Sunday. This does knit up fast, thanks to the bulky chunky yarn and size US 13 needles. Unfortunately, I can only do about 4 rows before I need to rest my hands. I have another 10 inches before I start the neck shaping. Hopefully this coming week will be a bit calmer and I can actually put some time into it.
We made over 6 dozen green chili corn and 1.5 dozen sweet tamales. It took us about 4.5 hours total. Although 1.5 hours of that was cooking time. They are so yummy! It had been 3 years since we had done this. Next year we are going to cut that amount in half. Our family all wants some of them but I am being a good mom and gifting them the recipe and they can make their own! LOL
It has been taste tested and pronounces yummy! I made 4 pans like the one above. Three are for gifting and the one above is for us to enjoy.
Most people put pecans on the top but since these are for gifting and most of my family do not like nuts, I used Reeses pieces.
I made 4 of these pans and once again, 3 of them will be for gifting. You see, we do ' white elephant' gift exchange each year for Christmas. Our gifts are to be 'nice' gifts and not gag gifts. They are also to be no more than $25. So this year, I purchased some lovely Lock n Lock containers and will fill them with home made goodies long with the recipe for each goodie. Hubby and I have 3 containers each to gift this year. I will let you know how well it went over next week. Also, on this day we went to the new house and played pool (so much more fun when it is not at your own home), ate pizza and had a great time with the family. It was so nice to see both of our sons together having some laughs and good times. The daughter in laws get along so well too. My heart is full!
