Black Friday at my local yarn shop, Three Black Sheep. My pal Judy has just finished her Eternity Scarf in Karabella merino. Gorgeous-amente! She is a tall gall and models and wears knits so beautifully.
The BIG SALE was a lot of fun because every hour and a half different things were on sale, associated with a certain letter. I was patient and stayed almost all day, and got this unusual colorway of Malabrigo Rios, and hit the jackpot with some Karabella merino in two different weights and colors.
And my fave item is this Namaste Needlecase for circulars. Lime leather. Too too! I loved putting my needles away, and will eventually get around to inserting the little number tags in their slots so I can easily find the exact needle when I need it. Turns out I have like 5 sets of #8 circulars. O dear...but then again, they might all be in use in different projects, so it's OK.
The weather turned sharply colder, and we had this wonderful sunset. It was 28 degrees this morning. Brrr. Good baking and knitting weather.
Since it is the season of good cheer, Chumley meets Popeye and for a split second it appears they could be friends. Popeye vehemently disagrees. Humbug!PS. the recipe for spicy pecans:
In a large frying pan, (I used a wok) melt some butter and olive oil and add a pound of pecans. Stir in some chili powder, honey, lemon pepper, cayenne to taste, and salt. Toast and taste. Add more honey or sugar and be careful not to burn. Turn out onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet to cool.
