joy joy joy


Every year I make the children sweaters to wear for our Christmas Cards, except for last year, as you recall I had a big problem. This was this years sweater, however not this picture. The boys sweaters came out of the book The Ultimate Knitter's Guide and is the "Sailor" The sizing is huge. My boys were happy with them because they are like sweatshirts. For me, the jury is still out. I think I would have been happy to do one size down for both of them. Libby's sweater is out of EZ knitting in the round, seamless yoke sweater. Both sweaters were made in Classic Elite Renaissance. I love this yarn. The cards finally went in the mail yesterday. Note to self: Order 200 next year. I had to cut people I did not want to, and I hated that!

The Christmas Jammie's are a huge success. For them and me. I do love seeing my kids in their Jammie's all "cozied" up!

These too are another joyful thing. I needed to make 100 of these super quick, super good. Snap pretzels, Hershey kisses, bake at 170 for 4-6 minutes. When removed from the oven, add m&m. SO yum!
