Crafting On :: Light in the Dark

There has been no snow to speak of, a few flakes in the air, but nothing more.  With last week's mild weather, it hardly felt like Christmas was so near.  This week is grey and wet and increasingly colder.  The lights of Advent and the tiny children's tree are welcome mood lifters.

Advent Wreath

Here's the Advent wreath I made, again.
It makes me happy to see it, for certain.
I look forward to seeing it all lit up.

Two new pairs

And here are two pairs of mittens I made.
I know it doesn't look like it, of course.
One got lost already!
I've started a third red mitten this afternoon.

Hugo Poncho

And here's my biggest project to date, excepting afghans.
It's the Hugo poncho, and it's for my mother.
I expect this one to take quite awhile,
especially since I have someone requesting a Child Surprise Jacket, too.

Time to get back to my hot chocolate and some school planning.  You've got to make hay while the children sleep!

I love your Advent wreath! When I was a little girl, we had one that hung from the ceiling. And your mittens are really lovely. I like that purple colorway. It is colder here this week, but still mild for this time of year. I think the high today was 45°, and there is no snow in the forecast. These dark days are beginning to get to me. Winter hasn't even started yet, and I already feel a little stir crazy.

Thanks! I agree--we need some snow to make all the grey worth it. :-)

Thanks! It is. :-) I really like it and am excited to see more candles lit as the weeks pass.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
