Keeping it organized…

Christmas was great, lots of family and friends. The kids gave me a Cuisinart ice cream maker, so tonight we had bourbon vanilla ice cream profiteroles with chocolate truffle sauce and bourbon caramel sauce. It was beyond delicious.

Coming down to the end of 2012. It’s been a good year, lots of travel and knitting. Sometimes both at the same time! I’m looking forward to what happens next for PDXKnitterati. I have a few deadlines to meet, design-wise. How do you keep yourself organized? I like lots of lists. And for my knitting, there’s this:

A different silk taffeta bag for each design project. All the bags go into my favorite around the house basket, Bindi by Lantern Moon. I think it’s been discontinued, but I love the size of this.

What’s next on your knitting radar? Do you have a selfish project lined up for January after gift knitting through December? I’m having a pattern sale on Ravelry; all of my patterns there are 20% off through January 5. The coupon code to enter is MeMeMe as in, it’s all about ME (which really means you). Thank you for reading and knitting!

  1. Beautiful sister! You two look so alike. Did you make your silk taffeta bags yourself?

  2. I stopped and bought the Pillsbury Cinnabon rolls so I can make the waffle for breakfast tomorrow.

    I’d like to start a sweater or two for myself in January.

    • The regular ones, I hope, not the grands. Because there’s a whole lot of squishin’ goin on!

      I just cooked up a design idea with Knitted Wit…let’s see if I can bang it out, quickly. Happy new year!

  3. Webfoot AND your sister look great!

    I love your fireplace screen!

  4. Beautiful knitting as always, and I love the silk bag idea. But I wanted to see how your vanilla bourbon ice cream profiteroles turned out! Gorgeous. I can almost taste them. Happy new year! Dee

  5. What a lovely scarf! And those bags are so pretty… especially hanging off your fireplace screen like that. :)
