"Twas the day before.................

Golly the time and work does go on.............Let's see I've knitted,shopped, baked the cookies and wrapped the presents all in good time. It's now time to settle in for a long day's nap, but I can't. It's those last minute ideas that keep us going through the day with little time to play.

Here are some highlights of the week..............

And the WINNER OF THE COOKIE CONTEST Knit Picks Socks is Jenny Girl!!! Please email me your name and address so I can send you your prize.

Holiday Madness and Cookie Contest

I've been blog absent since December 2nd for very good reasons. I've been knitting!!! Yes.......hard to believe but true. Some items can't be displayed for obvious reasons.
I don't know about you, but when the last week before the holiday arrives ,I begin to find additional folks to knit for. I think it has to do with the fact I get caught up and say to myself:"I can knit more gifts." This is insane, but I do it knowing full well I have enough to do which brings me to cookie making. This has begun with gusto....I made the rum balls yesterday. They are a no bake recipe:

It's time then for the holiday cookie contest. Please submit to me another of your favorite cookie recipes by Friday, December 22nd and I will draw the names out of a hat for a knitterly gift. Submit your entry to cindyknitsDOTgmailDOT com.

Believe it or not I'm knitting baby gifts as well.......................

I'm sure you've heard of Sock Wars....................check out this video.

Maine Mitts, Meetup and Catfish

A mix of topics today. ......oh's what's been happening as of late. I finished a pair of Maine these babies over my Isotoner gloves or bare hands. I made them out of some handspun yarn.

Last weekend I headed out to Mystic, CT and met some New England Bloggers. There were several of us in attendance. We missed seeing Kimberly and Rachel.

I also had the pleasure of finally getting a pic of DH's new synodontis catfish.
