Well, I seem to have caught a knitting bug this season because I took off running. More details on Ravelry, for those of you who are members. Lots of mittens, 2 hats, a mini scarf, and yes, even some progress on my BIG project: Darling's sweater (no longer a surprise - gift given, incomplete as it was, on Christmas). I even got yarn and a sweater class for gifts (a sweater for ME, indulgent indeed).
All fueled by copious amounts of tea, Peppercorn Shortbread (ohhh, there it is, the secret link), and a little dollup of hot buttered rum (courtesy of Karleen). Quite cozy, I do say.
