Mitten Knittin'

So, yesterday I reigned triumphant when I successfully completed my first knitted mitten. ("I was knittin' her mitten"!!)

Some say it looks like a cloven hoof, some say Vulcan Salute mitten.

I say "I came, I saw, I knitted a mitten without a pattern and figured out my own way." If my kid can't be a team player and shape her little hand into the Vulcan Salute then, well,....you just can't please some folks.

And I think it goes without saying that if you are a Mitten Hater, then avert your gaze. Oh, and why yes, that IS my sultry yet meaty hamhock upon which the mitten in question rests. Thanks for asking!

Knit Poetic

So....I've learned to knit. I have been inducted into the Knitting Cult that is an off-shoot of the homeschooling co-op of which we are a part. I resisted for a few weeks, but it was inevitable. I think they use some sort of backward masking in the anthems we sing at the opening session. (I should have known when the words included "all hail knit and purl".)

Anyhoo, I am now knitting one and purling two with the best of 'em. So far I have knit 8 scarves and one chapstick(TM) sweater.

Eggnog Creme Cupcakes

OhmyNOODness!! I have had this idea for Eggnog Creme Cupcakes floating around in my head for awhile now and decided to finally give them a shot. (hehe! With a 60cc syringe!) I loaded up the syringe with eggnog-spiked pudding and shoved it into eggnog-flavoured cupcakey goodness. YUM!
