Down To The Wire

Tomorrow night is the first night of Hanukkah and I'm scrambling to finish up a couple of projects.

The first is a Bejeweled Scarf I'm knitting from the yarn left over from the Sienna Cardigan I made for my daughter.

Next, I've been busily making batch after batch of Peppermint Bark to bring to a party on Saturday night.

This is my favorite holiday treat to make because (1) it's easy, (2) everyone loves it, and (3) I hate both white chocolate and mint in candy so I'm not tempted to eat any myself.

Finally, a sure-fire sign the holidays are closing in . . . I opened my first present--a pair of hand-knit socks sent to me by Tine:


Are they fabulous or what! She dyed the merino yarn herself.
I wore them to work today and they're perfect for the ice box they call my office. Thanks again, Tine! My feet were toasty warm all day.


Running commentary on my unending quest to knit up my stash.
