Thanks for posting that recipe! Maybe that will be my next cheat meal.  Wink Cheesy
Really, that will make a lovely Christmas Eve dessert for my fam. We aren't French-Canadian, but we have some French in us, so that'll count, right?

Those flags are lovely. I think they would make the perfect addition to a Christmas tree!

love the danish flags!  so cute.

i've been knitting up a storm this month.  here are three soft cowls for the elderly ladies on my list.  the blue ones are 100% silk, and the white is 100% reclaimed cashmere.




i've also finished my ishbel shawl, which will be for my mom:



i need to block it--the lace pattern will be much more obvious! 

i got the yarn for all of these projects from craftster ladies!   the blue silk is from AsphaltQueen, the cashmere was reclaimed and skeined by lapoli, and LimeRiot (formerly marethann) gave me the brown sock yarn used in ishbel.   special thanks to all three of them!

Wauw Oneredboot - that Ishbel shawl is beautiful. I clicked on the link to See the lacework. It is stunning, your Mother is very lucky.

That's okay, join us anyway. I'm not crafting along with the themes at all. Well, to be fair, I'm not crafting on anything holiday right now, but that's not really the point... I'll get there soon. Cheesy

I have to join! and properly this year. though already the year is over a quarter finished... does that mean a quarter of holiday crafting should already be done??  Shocked I think if I start now I might have a chance of getting it all done, you guys are so inspiring - oneredboot I am completely in awe of your knitting skillz, you make beautiful things and so fast! I have been working a good two years steady on one lace scarf (I intend to finish it in time for THIS christmas  Cheesy)

although it is april I have only just got started... so I went with the "something small" theme to get going.

and voila:


Sarubobo keychains! made from Mairuru's tut. I have so far made 5, I intend to make a lot more...

Has April been a tough month for everyone holiday-crafting-wise?  It's rather quiet in here, so I'm feelin' a little sheepish to be posting yet again!  Come on guys, think of how much more relaxed your holidays will be when you put in a little time now!  Ok, pep talk over--Here are my completed projects for the month of August:

rpm socks for my mom.  This included a spirally method for shaping the toe, which was new to me and which I really enjoyed.  It looks a little pointy on the sock blocker, but on an actual foot the fit is really comfy.




And three sets of counting bean bags for the small ones in the family:




Any thoughts for packaging these babies?  I was thinking of making scrap-patchwork drawstring bags with the kids' names or initials appliqued on them, but that's a bit time-intensive.  I might wait until other projects are further along to see if that will fly--let me know if y'all have other ideas!
