It's really feeling, looking and smelling like Christmas around the house this weekend!
Yesterday was the big candy makin' & cookie bakin' day.....with all the regular Christmas staples.
Chex Mix....double batch...the hubby likes to take it with him when he ventures out on the ice for some winter fishing. Crazy guy....you're not gonna catch me sitting out on the ice! Brrrrrr!
Rolo Pretzel Turtles.....the kids LOVE these! I had a couple little helpers help me make these yesterday. A friend of Jerry's needed his help fixing his car, so he brought his daughters over...we had a wonderful day. They're 8 and 10, and we made these yummy candies...ran some errands....colored...and watched lots of Nickelodeon the entire time. It was a fun afternoon and the candy was made!
Then the last batch was gingersnaps. I made one batch extra large, and then sliced up a quart of vanilla ice cream and made monster ice cream sandwiches. We are now officially sick of gingersnaps after eating just one of those sandwiches! I didn't take a pic...completely forgot! But I'm guessing it's not hard to imagine what they looked like!
I typically make fudge and other goodies, but mom sent up a wonderful care package filled with fudge, pecan tassies and buckeyes! And our neighbor usually always brings over a huge tray of goodies, so we decided this is PLENTY with a capital P!
There has been no more quilt binding happening around here this month...I had good intentions, but it's just not working out to get anything basted and quilted right now.
Instead, I've been consumed with the baktus scarf.
Love this Crazy Zauberball yarn! I have some regular Zauberball yarn, but this Crazy Zauberball is so fun because the yarn is two ply...two different colors twisted together and so you really get a neat look as the color transitions.
It's an easy pattern, but does give me reason to use some of my lovely little stitch markers to keep track of the increase row.
I'm almost to the halfway point....almost.
I'm guessing I'll get lots done on it today...because Emmitt has already set the tone for the day...
I'm going to shower and then get into some comfy lounge clothes....and knit! Happy Sunday!
