Counting Down

I am nearly finished the scarf I'm making for my winter coat.   A bit longer with some tastles.
I finished the crocheted tree.  Now to decorate. 

And still working on this basic knitting piece.  It probably will just be a pet blanket.

There's nothing more warming than seeing the Santa Village at the mall.
Well that and some cozy lounge wear.  

I started decorating the house with all the Christmas decorations.  And may even do up the tree this year as it's Pippa's first Christmas with us.
That said it's also our first Christmas without our Marma cat. 
I got my Charlie Brown tree out this year again.

Happy Weekend all!!

Tis the Season

Tis the season to get those crafts done for Christmas gifts. So many ideas and yarn and so little time. 
I finished this large yarn scarf for a swap gift. 


I'm halfway done the scarf for myself to go with my new winter coat.  I did frog it the first time doing a 4 X 4 row of knit purl but found it curled too much on the ends.  So I restarted doing a 2 X 2 knit purl instead.

Over night we got our first snow of the year.  Not as much as some areas but we're lucky in that respect in our region of Canada. 

Happy weekend all!!

So Michael's craft store had a great sale on yarn. I've been eyeing the large needle and large yarns for a while now.   It's a bit more awkward to knit with but works up quickly.
Yarn below I'm making a scarf for my new winter coat this year.

And Vegan updates, I've lost a bit more weight.  Tried Bulgar Wheat for the first time with vegetables and it's delicious.  

That's all for an update today.  Happy Weekend all.  
Prayers for Paris.

This and That

I finished the black shrug for my co-worker but forget to get a picture of the finished product.  What was I thinking?  I edged it with the glittery black and it looks nice on the recipient.

I also sold my Angry Bird hat that was in my Etsy store for a while.  YAY.

I have a new favourite cup in my cupboard.  Love my owls.

I made my first Vegan pizza this week.  Used some Seitan for a meat protein substitute and Daiya cheese ( dairy free ), only I found it too creamy texture on it so next pizza I'll omit that.

I found this tea on Amazon and it's just amazing. 

Halloween is now over.  I always have to get out a costume to dress up the cats and since it was Pippa first Halloween with us she was the lucky one. She looks impressed doesn't she?
