It was quite a week-
Measuring and mixing.
Beating and blending.
Scraping and rolling.
Baking, cooling, frosting.
Packing and Shipping.
But I made it. All 13 batches of it.
Then I sent it off to friends and family. (ok, not ALL of it. I kept a little for local munching)
And I’m afraid I didn’t take any pictures of the process. I was just glad to get it all done in time.
Of course, I made sure to take wool breaks to ensure I retained my sanity in the midst of all this cookie craziness.
Exhibit A- Oscar Socks
I started these socks months ago, when the recipients feet were only as long as the white part! Yeeks!
Exhibit B- Custom Photo Glove/Mitts
These are a not-so-secret Christmas present for The Man. Still need thumbs and index fingers (with openings for finger tips), but I’m getting close!
And the spinning-
Mioget Shetland with blonde mohair and gold tussah silk, Border Leicester, and some CVM/Suffolk cross.
Yum. High fiber goodies. Healthiest things I made all week!
Now perhaps I can just relax and enjoy the holidays 🙂
This week I am taking off work to participate in the Christmas Cookie Olympics.
I plan to compete in the following events:
Fruit and Nut Bread
and perhaps Pfeffernusse and Cardamom Biscotti if I have strength left.
This is the view from the starting blocks
All ingredients are present and accounted for, and I’m going to get a start first thing in the morning.
Dough chilling, baking and cookie cooling time will hopefully offer me the opportunity to take some wool breaks, as I do have a few little non-baking projects that I need to wrap up pretty quick!
The goal is to have everything packed up and shipped out by Saturday the 17th.
See you at the finish line- 🙂
