I was SO looking forward to yesterday, the idea of being house bound and snow on the way, I love it! John and I helped with christmas trees for awhile and made ourselves right at home (so did Nellie). My folks recently installed this refinished stove (my mothers grandmother's I believe) and John had been itching to do some cooking on it. So, first up was bacon and eggs for breakfast - yum! Then we ventured into baking and baked a cake in the oven. Luckily we kept a close eye on it because it cooked in 1/2 the time - ha! i guess it will take some trial and error to work out the kinks. I think bread may be next.......

I have officially finished my 'made gifts' so I had some time for knitting for myself seen in the background on the needles- yay!!! (I can't wait until after the holiday's so I can share some of the fun patterns I used this year). Anyway, I have heard great things about these Maine Morning Mitts and decided to give them a go. I was skeptical that they would be useful/practical but I have LOVED having them! I just made them yesterday but I have barely taken them off. These were made with some left over lamb's pride.

Kate, that pattern turned out beautiful! I think I might have to attempt it at some point. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas; see you in January!
