Over the weekend, we visited the Vancouver Christmas Market to enjoy some holiday festivities but mostly to indulge in German yumminess and spiced mulled wine, mmm!
The Ice King and Queen and The Nutcracker were some of the stars
But look at all those knitted hats (probably machine-knit, but still!)
Nothing like a hat to keep you warm on a cold evening
…and of course, hot apple cider helps too!
especially if you sip it through a stick of cinnamon
There was more knitting, this time as store decor. Knitted olives…how adorable!
My Christmas knitting is almost done, yeehaw! I had to shelve a couple of planned projects because my index finger was beginning to feel a bit sore. I have an annoying habit of pushing the needle tip on that finger every time I knit a stitch. Ouch! Although I have enjoyed knitting all these gifts for the ones I love, I am ready to get back to sweater knitting. The weather outside is frightful… perfect to curl up with a warm wool sweater on the needles!
I hope everyone is staying warm and happy this holiday season.
