Wow, December already! How are your Advent/Christmas plans coming? To be honest, our living room still looks a wreck. Just can’t seem to get it cleaned up. At least I’m done my Christmas and grocery shopping. Now I can avoid the stores until the craziness is done.
We’ve had a bit of rain the last few days and Colin got the last of the carrots dug up. I canned some carrots and potatoes. I’ve never done this before, so I only did a few of each to make sure we like them. I’m trying a new soup recipe today to use up a few more of the carrots. Then it’s time to put the pressure canner away until after Christmas.

Some Christmas knitting to share this week.
Faux Isle fingerless gloves for Ella’s skating coach.
No extra reading going on this week. Busy getting some custom sewing done and finishing up cleaning the house.

Yarn Along is a little late today. Had to wait until Ella went to bed since everything is Christmas related.
First up are these fingerless gloves for Ella. She loves wearing these even in the house. I saw the foxes and they were too cute not to knit. I might even make Ella a pair of fox socks (but not right now).
Look what I made!
Santa costume for the Calico critters. The only problem is that it only fits Nurse Bunny, not one of the Daddies. Hopefully that won’t bug Ella too much.

Yarn Along this week is a ‘play’ toque for Ella. Now all she needs is some snow. It’s currently 16C so I think she’ll be waiting for a while. I love this pattern. It’s a double layer around the ears and forehead. It’s done all in one piece, no seams; that means it’s stretchy and comfy.
I’m not reading anything right now, but I do have a book to suggest. My new SCA friend Michelle (or Lucia as I know her) is releasing her second medieval cook book. I can’t wait to get a good look at it!
