It’s Yarn Along over at Small Things today.
I finished the first fingerless glove last night while watching Anne of Green Gables. I love that show and should really purchase the TV series someday. I had to alter the mitt pattern slightly to fit my small hands but I’m really happy with the way the mitt has turned out. It looks like Hubby won’t have to wear them after all.
The last few days I’ve been doing some research into beekeeping and wine making. Beekeeping seems like a great deal of work so I’m going to focus on wine making instead. The Complete Guide to Making Your Own Wine at Home is a great beginner book and I’m learning lots of good things from it. With Christmas around the corner I don’t plan on starting any wine just yet, but I really should start baking cookies. Martha Stewart’s Cookies is my go to book for Christmas baking. I’ll be making some family favorites as well as trying some new ones too. What are your family favorites?
I’ve also been looking through Prayers for the Domestic Church: A Handbook for Worship in the Home for special Christmas prayers. I found one a really nice Blessing Prayer for the Christmas Tree that I’m hoping to use this weekend when we get our tree.
I hope you are having a blessed Advent!
