The Big Reveal

Stay tuned for the biggest project I've had in a looooooong time! My Tangled Yoke cardigan is FINALLY finished! I've had it on the needles since March of '09. Yesterday I blocked it. Tomorrow, I'm wearing it! (I don't care if we have a snow day or not!!!)

Stay tuned, I'm planning on posting pictures this week. I'm just too excited to not give a heads up. Whoot!!!

Look out world!

Before man can run he must first walk. That's actually wrong. Before man can run, he must first roll over. Whoot little guy!!! (I apologize about the video quality, I grabbed the closest thing and haven't mastered the new camera yet.)

This is officially the 2nd time he rolled over.
Whoot baby boy!

Sledding

Took the little guy to daycare in the afternoon for a couple of hours so we could take the big kid sledding in the park. First time on the toboggan run. I'm thinking he loved it!


Big kid and dad on their first run.
You have to click on this picture to see his face.
I'm thinking he loved it!


Big kid wanted to go on fresh snow.
Dad pushed him. You can see how far he got on 8" of fresh snow.
I laughed pretty hard on that one.


He heard me and got the snowball ready.
Lucky for me it was a powdery snow.


Yeah, he's walking. The snow is up to his knees!


Aaaaaaannnnnnnd, he fell in a deep spot.


My wonderful hubby!


Found another hill to go down.
Lots of tall grass showing through, but, VERY fast!


This hill makes it look like we had barely any snow at all.
Let it be known we had 8"!

Snow Day!

We've had a snow day here. My homemade snow-om-o-meter says we've gotten 8" thus far (I took the picture several hours ago & it's snowed more since then). Not too bad for the first real snow of the year.



With that said, I've been quite busy here at home. Yesterday I did all of the laundry without the help of my DH. Those in the know will applaud me for this as hubs usually has this task.

I'm 1/2 way done with another noro striped scarf I'm making for my hubby (pictures to come upon completion).

I'm also 12 rows away from being done with the tangled yoke cardigan I started in March of '09. I know I said I wouldn't knit anything until I was done with the sweater, but, what can I say? I lied.

I can't say that it fits the way it was intended with my baby belly still hanging on, but, that will soon be taken care of. I'm just happy to be so close to the finish line on this bad boy. (pictures to come upon completion). The only thing left for it are buttons. I'll be going out for those, just not today with all of the white stuff on the ground.

I hope everyone is enjoying today even if you don't have a snow day!

Basic Wintertime Addition

Here is a simple addition sentence for my knitting friends:

+


a day that is promised to be filled with falling snow


=


an almost (hopefully completed) project
(I'm hoping to finish this winter scarf for my hubby)

Biscotti

Now that the weather is cold, I'm loving my morning cup of coffee. Hubby makes fun of me because I have equal parts coffee to milk, but, it's the only way I get the milk in that I need.

I've been looking for the perfect thing to have my my morning cup o joe and decided biscotti is the way to go. I like the variety that I have to choose from at the local coffee shop, but, don't want to fork over so much $$$ each time.

I decided it was time to try and make some biscotti. For some reason, I was thinking it would be hard. Boy was I wrong. Granted, it's not a quick thing to make, but, the results are divine!

Take a lookie lou at my very first batch. Hubby says it's better than Starbucks. I'll take that as a compliment thankyouverymuch!
