Today was a nice day! I finished my Palmyre Shawl late last night and even got it blocked before going to bed. By the end of today, I was swaddled in it's warmth. I still have to weave in the ends, but it is wearable and I really like the size and color! I'll share more details on it in a post in the next couple of days.
The weather has turned much colder and as a result, we've been doing a little more hibernating. There has been a fire in the grate most of the day and we've been keeping ourselves occupied in the living rooms so that we can stay cozy. The children stepped away from their spots just long enough to work on their gingerbread house this evening just before church. I set them up and then just let them have at it. I love what they did!
