It was a great Christmas Day here!
I am super excited about the gift I received from my children..
this is the Knitter’s Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Deluxe knitting needle set. Time for a new project!
And with great timing, my shoulder is finally starting to respond and I am allowed to knit for a few minutes each day as my shoulder is tested. This is the project that has been on my needles since October — I am using Lion Brand Mandela with size US 5 needles.
As a result of my limited crafting, I continue to puzzle. I ordered and completed this nice Christmas puzzle.
This is a Eurographics puzzle called Christmas Ornaments – 1000 pieces and the format made it super fun, it was finished on Christmas Eve. I usually don’t make a puzzle more than once but I think I need to keep it just in case it needs an encore visit.
And yes…. I baked cookies on friday and saturday. Double batches of peanut butter and cookie press and a single batch of pizzelles. I wanted to do plain peanut butter and some peanut butter blossoms so I searched online for the difference in the recipe for each – I ended up using the pb cookie recipe in the Better Homes & Garden Cookbook circa 1972(ish) for both. What I found online was the idea that instead of a Hershey kiss in the middle using a bite size Reese peanut butter cup…genius!!
