Did you notice that? Three done-zzz??? That's because there are now three little sweaters completed for three grandies that are heading into the Christmas box. This is the third - same pattern, same yarn, just ever so slightly different colorway.... (you can scroll down to see the other two if you want to compare them).
Yesterday we went on a short road trip which ended up turning into yet another of our famous (or infamous?) debacles. Our destination was Algoma Orchards which is a great apple market in quest of a nice supply of apples. Resident Chef drove there and, as usual, handed the keys over to me to drive home. First mistake. I, unfortunately for some, am one of those people who likes to go on the roads less traveled and often can be heard to say 'I wonder what's down this road?'. Well, my wondering can lead to some pretty interesting adventures and yesterday was no exception. We saw more dead ends than ever before and I did more backtracking than we'd ever done. Poor Resident Chef was nearly beside himself as I wandered up and down trying to find something that would lead us home. All those backroads had us oftentimes winding around and going miles out of our way in the opposite direction...all this with a gas tank that was flirting with fumes. Ooops. I guess we're simply getting too old for going on road trip adventures and from now on I'll have to be good and stick to the beaten path.
But if I had, would we have seen these?
- There are some really cute ideas HERE for making bookmarks (perhaps to go along with a book you're gifting at Christmas?)
- I'm sure there is someone on your Christmas list that might appreciate one of THESE.
- I've often wondered how to make THESE (you'll need to scroll way down to get the tutorial).
- Some of you might find THIS to be something you'd like to keep in your files.
