I’ve had a busy morning so far. We had a young man come out to give us an estimate regarding our woodstove. After that I went to the post office to mail Alex’s birthday/Christmas gift. Then it was on to the church for a couple of errands there and to the grocery store. I just got home and put two loaves of banana bread in the oven. I had some bananas that got just a little too ripe to eat and I can’t bring myself to throw them away. Banana bread is a great thing to put into the freezer to pull out if you need a quick dessert. The house smells so yummy right now. I wish you could all smell it along with me. We could have some tea and some banana bread warm from the oven together. Or, you could have a danish cookie from Costco! I have lots of those. Ha ha!
I’ve finished the fourth block on the “12 blocks of Christmas KAL”. Dennis said his favorite is this plum color out of the four blocks.
And here they are, all four together. This is the first of three strips. I am having so much fun with this KAL.
I’ve also done three loads of laundry and changed the sheets on the bed this morning. I think I’ve earned a few hours of knitting time this afternoon don’t you?
Here are a couple more pictures Alex sent me. This one is of the Tower of London. I think the white brick is beautiful.
Many people think this is the Tower of London but this is actually Tower Bridge if I recall correctly.
He also got a picture of himself ice-skating with the Victoria and Albert, (my favorite,) museum behind him. He said this one was for me and the Sherlock Holmes picture was for Dennis.
I did not knit one stitch on Dennis’s sweater yesterday. I made the KAL block and I knitted a “granny‘s favorite” dishcloth for my gift basket. I also need to start some socks for Brad for Christmas. I need more knitting time! Ha ha! I hope you are all having a wonderful Tuesday.
