Photos of the Day

Chris and I went for a lovely walk around the neighborhood today. The weather is super nice so it's nice to take advantage before it starts snowing and I don't want to leave the house again until Spring.

Stop! Cupcakes!

I made some yummy yummy cupcakes today mostly because I got bored. As you can see, Chris was pretty reluctant to be photographed with cupcake in hand. They're traditional vanilla cupcakes from the Magnolia Bakery cookbook with a cream cheese frosting.

Fingerless Gloves (In Progress)

I'm nearly finished with a pair of fingerless gloves that I'm knitting up as a Christmas present. The yarn is Lion Brand Wool-Ease and the pattern is called Susie's Reading Mitts and I'm really happy with it. They're very simple and chic which was what I was going for.

I'm debating whether or not to make a full set with a hat and scarf or just to make one or the other to go with it. I've still got a month to finish the Christmas knitting so I've got some time to work it out.

As far as Christmas knitting goes, I've finished the Hemlock Blanket and I just need to block it this weekend. After the gloves and hat and/or scarf I'm hoping to make three Monkeys from the pattern in Amigurumi World by Ana Paula Rimoli for my nephew. I think that it's all doable by Christmas but check in with me on 12/20 to see if I bit off more than I can chew.
