New Knitty Magazine

Now here is an interesting and it would seem, very cool pattern. I am intrigued and take a look at it in another color way. I think I like it!

Well, finally the Christmas lights and tree are set up. The tree only has the lights on it but things are looking up. The house is starting to look very festive. I also simmered some herbs and spices to make the house smell like good stuff too.

And my Father Christmas is nearly finished! Should have him done for Madison Knitting Guild tomorrow night. Chris Bylsma is the guest speaker talking about I am not sure what? I am going to wear this really cool poncho sort of wrap that I bought from my friend Cynthia. It is a sort of mushroom color that goes with everthing! And I think I look good in it so all the more reason to wear it!!

I didn't make it to friend Bee's cookie walk sponsored by her church, this morning, darn it! I want a lot of cooking to send to friends and don't want to have to bake ALL of them! Oh well, time to get off my butt and get some cookies baking so that I can get the packages sent in time.

I rented the movie, Nanny McFee and I just love it! Really delightful fairy tale AND some nice hand knit sweaters in it too! I also got to see Polar Express last night and really enjoyed that as well. Some wonderful films. I a have a made for televesion BBC film of Elizabeth I to look at this evening! I am all set I guess.
Well talk to you later,

again to be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink. Turn on the electric
mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar. Beat again.
At this point it's best to make sure the Cuervo is still OK, try
another cup just in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy.

loose with a drewscriver. Sample the Cuervo to check for tonsisticity.
Next, sift

the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add aspoon of
sugar, or
somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360
