|Chef Steve before his beautiful dinner. Turkey, stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes, maple glazed carrots, coleslaw, rolls, cranberry vinaigrette salad with cranberries and walnuts. It was perfect!|
|Here's my cookie platter! I made chocolate chips, the old standby, snowballs and buckeyes. My mother-in-law made peanut butter too!|
Santa brought me a good yarn haul!!! Well actually my husband got me quite a few skeins of yarn. I would have been happy with nothing but yarn actually.
|I also had two other skeins of one of my other new favorite yarns Hometown USA by Lion Brand.|
|I didn't waste any time and got right to work last night and made this cowl scarf!!! It's so warm!! Perfect for throwing on under a coat on the way to the movies or the mall! Here's the pattern: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L0048C.html?noImages=|
My husband was so sweet too, because he bought me a How to Knit kit. I have always crocheted and I really have tried to knit. But whenever I try, and the last time I did was about 5 years ago, my stitches are so tight that they end up flinging themselves off the needle.
Anyway, after my experience of running into the girls who met on Raverly the other day I said that I'd like to try it again. Let's see if I can make it work this time. So you'll be hearing about my knitting adventures coming up in future blogs. I'm kind of anxious. Any advice? Any starter projects you can recommend?
I've already checked the job boards this morning. There was one graphic designer position at Walt Disney World (my dream job!) and I quickly set to applying for it. When I hit the apply button it said that the position had already been filled. It was just posted!!! Bummer!!! So I'm back searching and searching again. Send your good vibes my way!!
In the meantime, I'm remaining creative and going to create another snowboarder hat in a funky color. I'm thinking I'll use that purple! You should see that coming down the slopes from far away!!!
Have a great day and remain creative!!!
