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’?
