Knitting Projects

Recently I've been very fortunate to have quite a bit of free time in the evenings, and on weekends since Jon and I have been sort of hibernating because of this cold winter. So, from this bitter cold, I've had loads of time to work on my knitting!! Here are just a few of my recent creations, which I'm quite proud of. The first is a hat and mitten set. The second is a work in progress, but it will very soon be a stroller blanket. The small blue triangles on the side are meant as a cap to tuck the baby's head in and wrap him up... similar to the pockets they put on towels for babies to immediately wrap their heads.

Holiday Travels

So we are finally back from our holiday travels, and back into the swing of things in Halifax. We're both really excited about 2009 and what this year will bring. The holiday treats were delicious. The new recipes for the stocking stuffers came out perfect, and were a hit!! Here are some quick snapshots of our holiday adventures!
