I came across this fabulous knit! I'm so very excited about this. A panta-along is being put together(by rainberryblue)... Go check it out and see if it interests you. This is going to be perfect for me because I always wear my hair up in a bun, hats just don't work. I have already started it, well actually I have it completely knit up and all I need is to seam it up. I knit it in one day, it goes very quicklyy. Once I finish it I'll post pictures.
This is one thing I didn't even mention until now, a baby hat my sister Dawn. A friend of hers just had a little girl. L is modeling it. As you can see it's too small for her, which is good. She is almost 9 months old, and I want it to fit a newborn. It was put in the mail on Monday along with my final package for my secret pal. Yes I know, the deadline was the 4th.... I'm a bad sp. But hopefully she wont mind.
It is quite frightful outside today. They say we are going to get 8 inches of the white fluffy stuff by tonight... I love snow. Well actually i hate driving in it and cant stand when its melting and all slushy. But when it is snowing it is one of the most beautiful things God has given us. G made his first snowman today. Of course he had some help from daddy and mommy. He also insisted on wearing his sunglasses that only have one lens. He is such a silly little boy. Lately he had been such a sweetie and we laugh and have tons of fun together.
Oh yeah, we finally got a Christmas tree. That was on Sunday, and I just put lights on it today. We have a little one so we could put it on top of an end table. That way L can't get into it too much. Oh how I love the smell of a good Christmas tree.... and sweets....
Today I made buckeyes. So many people have posted recipes on their blogs, I think its about time I post one. So here you go.
1 lb peanut butter
1 lb confectioners sugar
1/2 lb graham crackers
1/2 lb butter or margarine
1 tbs vanilla
Crush graham crackers fine. Mix all ingredients together. Roll into small balls. Chill(I like to put them in the freezer).
Melt (double boiler works best):
18 oz. Chocolate chips
1/5 bar of paraffin wax (canning wax)
Dip the chilled balls into the mixture, holding by toothpicks. Put balls on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Best when served from refridgerator.
I had some left over chocolate and dipped bananas and pretzels in it(not together, separately). Yummy!
Last week I learned a new technique. The tubular cast on. What a cool thing it is! It makes the most polished looking cast on I've ever come across. If you haven't tried it I suggest you do! Just look at it! Very cool! Go ahead and click on the pic. Get a closer look.
Ok well I wanted to post a picture of my tree but I've misplaced my camera. I'm kinda freaking out, were could it be? It will turn up eventually, until then, no tree pictures or any others for that matter. AHHHH
Knit happy everyone!
