I just realized that Christmas is next week and I have one Christmas gift that I haven’t even begun to knit and three that are WIP. Yikes! With that in mind, I naturally began a new project that has nothing to do with Christmas knitting: mittens for myself. I know it’s ridiculous but I probably won’t have time to finish my gifts before Christmas anyway and besides…. my hands are really cold.
In other news, I’ve been doing a lot of holiday baking lately. These aren’t really “baked” as much as “prepared,” but they are fabulous. You make a little sandwich out of Ritz crackers and peanut butter, then dip it in chocolate coating (I used this kind) and put it on waxed paper to cool and harden. It’s probably the most fattening thing ever, but it’s soooo yummy.
