Almost to the finish line

I have another FO! I am that much closer to being finished with my holiday knitting! I finished the IHS hat late last night, for the second night in a row. Tuesday I was knitting until 1 am, and last night I did finish around 11:30, but I picked up the scarf and worked on it some more. I think I crawled into bed around 12:45. So, that leaves me with:

  • half of the IHS to finish
  • 1 pair of fingless gloves

Then I'm done, done, done! I'll have pics, as soon as I remember to charge the camera. Then all I'll have left to do is bake cookies, and wrap the knitted gifts. And this years cookie selection will be (not that it's changed from last year):

  • Chocolate chip cookies
  • Peanut Butter Blossoms
  • My version of Russian Tea Cakes

I usually like to make different kinds, but mom asked for them again this year. Especially the Russian Tea Cakes. Now, when I say *my version* of this recipe, it's because I stumbled across it. The only thing different is that I use granulated sugar instead of powdered sugar, and walnuts instead of pecans. The original recipe is the *secret kiss* recipe from my Hershey's cookie book, just no Hershey Kisses incased in the middle. Mom goes nuts for them and has to have a batch all to herself. That's why I made her a batch for her birthday, which is today.

Well, I'm gonna see if I can sneek in some knitting here at work, since it was *supposed* to be slow and it been everything but, and maybe I'll have pics tomorrow.

What? Not done your Christmas baking yet. Tonia. Tsk Tsk Tsk. By the time they're made, it will be Christmas and you'll be too full of the other stuff to eat cookies. Oh well, guess the knittings' a little more important that working off calories! :)
