I asked for and got some cool kitchen knives. The big one is specifically for vegetable chopping and whoo-wee does it do its job! Those veggies chop like they are buttah...
And I got some yarn, Berroco Peruvia 7220, Raku Glaze. Soft and pretty. And a cool fabric bag to boot.
And I did some knitting over the holidays. Mostly hats, because I can drink wine while I knit them. And because I can't seem to sit down for any length of time when there is a house full of people and holiday things to do and holiday meals to make.
Anyway, this camera is not a Christmas gift. I have appropriated it from my son who rarely uses it. My blog pictures suck and I would really like to do better. Call this a new year's resolution if you will. There could be some funky photos coming as I experiment - be warned.
I am off to do some post-Christmas shopping now. My lys is having a 25% off everything sale and I am obliged to find some yarn to match the Raku Glaze, possibly to make a blanket. And I may do some stocking up on 220. It is going to be a long winter and if I do find myself unemployed in February then I am going to need a stash.
I may make a little Resolutions list. I haven't decided yet. Maybe the blog will keep me accountable. Maybe.
P.S. My brother loved his hat. In fact, all the hats I knitted for Christmas got adopted and were appreicated which made me happy. In fact, my brother wants another. A funky earflap design this time. So you see, I have to go yarn shopping today.
