The Season

All the Christmas crafting is finished, and the countdown has begun! I finished the second pair of socks for Eleanore’s stocking:
Toddler Socks
I *think* the yarn is June Carter on Glacier from Cider Moon, but I’m not sure, as the yarn has been tagless in my stash for a while.

I also even managed to fit in a surprise pair of socks for my mother in law, but I haven’t snagged a picture yet. She has been asking for a pair of socks for two years now, and I finally was able to fit in a pair for her. I used Araucania Nature Wool, a very light worsted/dk, and the International Sock of Doom pattern, so they worked up quickly. The pattern is now located here if you’re looking for it.

In the past week, I also found two new additions to our winter table.

My mother in law had the Santa Claus beeswax candle for years and years, and when she saw my etsy favorite list, she thought I might like to have hers.
The wool tapestry is from TheMoonGoat on etsy, and I love it. She is on vacation right now, so her shop is on hold, but you can see some of her past work here and a few pieces are on my favorite list, as well.

The season wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Santa, and we managed to see him at The Henry Ford Museum the other day. Eleanore even received her first set of Duplo Legos from him.

I thought this would be a tough year for us with Santa (and fully expected a screaming picture), but Eleanore was perfectly calm and collected, even though waiting in such a long line truly tested her patience, and she was ready for her afternoon nap.
