I mentioned that I have done a lot of online holiday shopping. That includes buying some things for me : )

I would like to tell you how much I love these ice lantern molds from Lee Valley. I have been a veritable ice lantern factory over here – so far, I’ve made six and unless I clear some room in the freezer, that will be my maximum number. They are about the size of a ½ gallon of ice cream – so if you live in an area where daytime temps are enough above freezing, you need to have room in your freezer.

We had a fabulous holiday weekend. It was the nicest, most relaxing Thanksgiving I can remember. D#1 was home. The girls hung out together (which reminded me of all the times I wished I had a sister), we got all the Christmas decorations up, I did some knitting ……

and some more f-ing ripping! that was the only unrelaxing part. This time it was not the yarn, it was me! I did not like the way I managed the honeycomb pattern along the decreases of the underarm. At first I was just going to leave it be, but then I thought I took the time to rip for the areas of color deficiency, so what sense does it make to adopt a ‘no one will notice’ attitude now’?

  1. Glad you had a nice weekend, frogging not included, but best to make it right or you won’t be happy with it. Ice lantern factory :) They’d melt pretty quick here, but they’re great for a holiday table too.

  2. I read about your ice lantern and the next thing I knew I was in the kitchen, hunting for something that would substitute for your store-boughten mold. It will be simpler than your star-shaped one, but heck, it’s free ;-) If it actually works I’ll post a picture on my blog. Thanks for the idea!

  3. After seeing this, I had to have it. I bought one immediately and it is on its way. Thanks for the home furnishing tip!!
    Happy Happy Joy Joy!!
