Pretty much everything I have to say in terms of me making cookies this time of year was said last year, so go check out that post, which has recipes and pictures. I like to crank up the Christmas CDs while cranking out the Brune Kager, and lead-off tune is alway Feliz Navidad by the sublime Jose Feliciano. Enjoy!
Yes, it’s an actual post here at Moominmama’s Memoirs! And with weaving content, to boot.
It’s been a busy summer and fall here at Chez Moomin, and rather than catch you up with the wonderful times at Sock Summit, the delights of ComicCon, WorldCon, and World Fantasy Con; the quick junket to the US Virgin Islands in December (and I’ve still got the bug bites to prove it!) . . . well, rather than that, I’m just going to show off the quicky scarf I made as a Christmas present for a friend.
The yarn is a mystery yarn I bought from Elsa at the Seaview Weavers Plaid Llama sale. It’s sett at 6 epi, and wove up quickly into a soft, warm scarf, 9 inches wide, and about 5 1/2 feet long. A bit boardy as it came off the loom, but a soak in Soak followed by a spin-out in the front-loading washer beat it into submission, and now it’s cushy and lovely.
What’s that? You want proof that I left the vale of greyness that is often Seattle in December and went to a tropical place? Okay, how’s this?
And we’ll close with the sunrise the day we left.
Celebrate the return of light as we round the Solstice and head towards Spring.
