Last weekend I helped a group of grad student friends decorate Christmas cookies.
I also got out my long puffy coat.
Dear friends sent me this gorgeous woodcut print they made.
And Boh cuddled up to J., here working on another knitting project! Boh and I are gearing up for a week at my parents’ house, which means there’s a flurry of activity (and of light snow, actually): cleaning, packing, making sure I’ve got all of my presents, deciding what books and work to bring home…
And also, which knitting should accompany us. This is the Hudson Bay Inspired Crib Blanket, which I’m making as a lap blanket in shades of blue against a natural backdrop. I think it is the perfect pattern for friends of mine who got married last year.
Other things happening around here: chocolate chip cookies, latkes, and reading/dog-cuddling.
I’m not sure I’ll be blogging between now and the new year, but Boh and I will be back soon with all the regular stuff and perhaps some 2013 fibery goals/plans! Happy everything to you and yours this holiday season.
Happy Christmas to you and Boh! See you in 2013.
Those cookies look delicious!
Merry Christmas and all the best for 2013, dear Rooster and adorable Boh!
This all sounds wonderful, very jealous. Missing you and Boh both, Merry Christmas from us and Groceries. <3
Have a great time at home! Please tell your parents I said hello! The blanket is going to be beautiful. Can’t wait to see it all done!
Happy New Year to you and Beau too. Thanks for being part of my morning coffee ritual again this last year.
Wishing you the happiest of holidays! Sounds like you’re celebrating in style (what’s better than a latke, family time, a good book, and some dog-snuggling?).
Haha, I love the Cal Bear cookie! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your family and wish you safe travels home!!
