It feels like Christmas already!

Hi everyone...How has your week been?  Mine has been great!  I say that it feels like Christmas already not only because the stores have Christmas stuff out....but because I got two pre-Christmas presents.....

I bought myself an iMac...



And Darlene got me the greatest pre-Christmas gift...the David's Tea advent calendar and their Christmas mug!  I had one of these calendars last year and I loved it...I already love this one....Day 1 was "Let it Snow" flavor and it was delicious!  Yes, I had day one in November.....Don't Judge!



The mug starts with a black wolf and when hot tea is in it, the wolf turns white, and when it is just warm, it is grey.....such a fabulous mug!  I love it!  Thank you Darlene!


I also got my Swap Package...I participated in the Advent Mini Swap that Melissa from the Spicyhomemaker podcast did....and my package came!  Now, I have not opened my minis yet, but I did open my "Open Now" package and it was fabulous...I cannot wait to make a sweater from the Cocoknits book!




Here is a closeup of the yarn she got me (you can barely see it to the left on the above picture):



Here is the package I sent her (unfortunately, one of the small packages was missing, but she got all but one):



The grandkids had a great Halloween....we all went to Paige's house.  I passed out candy at her house (Jazz, the grandpup helped) and the kids all trick or treated!



Even Paige dressed up!


As for me....I was Batgirl, but did not get a picture of myself...so I will share a cute Halloween Pic:




Now.....as for knitting....Yes, this is a knitting blog....I got some stash enhancements....I ordered some Hedgehog DK yarn to make a hat....I was just itching to make a hat....the pattern is called "Magic Brioche" and I am hoping to make two hats with this yarn...one for me, and one for Paige.






And I worked on my Daddy's Ranger...I am sure you guys are as tired of this sweater as I am....LOL! I am hoping to have the sleeves joined or super ready to join by next week!



Well, that is really all I have.....but on a side note, Antonio is OBSESSED with fidget spinners.....so we made one of ice and froze it.....so here is an ice fidget spinner!  He was so excited!



Oh, and I almost forgot.....I bought a Kitchen Aid and all weekend I tried making bread.  I have made 5 loaves and I still do not have it down just right, but I have been enjoying trying to do it and taste testing my bread 😍 Maybe one day I will be a 'baker'...LOL!  😂😂😂😂






Well, that is really all I have....Have a great week everyone!




Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
