Christmas knitting is almost complete! Unfortunately, I caught a bug and have been sick since Monday. I was completely unable to knit anything that day. I got a little bit done yesterday and have gotten to the halfway point on my last gift today. It looks like everything will be going out the day after Christmas, as I refuse to leave the house for any type of store on Christmas Eve. I am starting to feel better and hope it lasts! Who wants to be sick on Christmas?
My hubby ordered Stone Crab Claws from George Stone Crab in Florida and they will be arriving for a festive Christmas Eve dinner. If you’ve never had them, you must try them out! They are so big and delicious. The company ships them in a cooler with gel packs and guarantees overnight delivery anywhere in the United States. They come with a mustard sauce that is divine, along with a wooden hammer and picks to dig out any bits. We’re having a friend over and will enjoy a nice salad and bottle (or three) of wine from one of our local wineries. I can’t wait!
I’ve got three more hats to go for my grief knitting series and thought I would share my niece Kayla’s hat today. I joked around on my Ravelry page notes that if you made this hat in blue, it would be an awesome costume piece to go as Marge Simpson on Halloween 🙂 It’s meant to be worn slouchy; however stand it up and you see what I mean! This was my second time working with cables and I love the look of them.
