Wow, it’s been a busy week.
Off to get our tree last Tuesday. Had to stop for our annual height chart picture.
Ella found a great tree.
Just a nice amount of snow this year -so much better than last year’s rain.
Ella loved the snugly bunnies in the cafe. This one is named licorice.
Before we left they hit the hill a couple of times. Ella thinks they need an escalator.
Ella did a great job decorating the tree (Daddy did lights and garland). My job is unwrapping the ornaments.
The Elf mischief continues. Who knows where we’ll find them every morning. Luckily we caught Faith before she stared to nibble Ella’s gingerbread house.
And now for the reason you’re reading this, my knitting for Yarn Along this week:
Some Christmas socks for Colin.

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.
