I’ve been fighting a pretty nasty cold all week, so I’m staying in this New Year’s Eve. I don’t really have the energy for a recap either, so just a few happenings since my last post!
My yule log was beautiful – unfortunately the cake was kinda dry. I really liked the frosting though – Swiss Meringue buttercream, flavoured with instant espresso powder and vanilla. I’d definitely make that, and the meringue mushrooms again.
I knit an Attabi cowl in one day, out of Berroco Blackstone Tweed – it’s a sample that I’m taking with me to the January TNNA show next week. I love the deep purple!
Not so much a single day project (I had to keep ripping out for sizing), but on Christmas and a few days afterwards I knit this cowl out of Malabrigo Twist. It’s reversible, and super quick and fun! I used 2 skeins – look for the pattern in January.
That’s about it! Tonight I’m knitting, relaxing, and trying to kick this cold. Hope your New Year’s is fun.
