Not Enough Chocolate

Remember this?

Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool, shade 018 (chocolate). Apparently a popular color. I've gingerly placed dad's scarf in a protective ziplock baggie and I patiently wait for the folks at my local yarn shop to order my last skein.

In the meantime, I happily work on my Malabrigo Mama.

I'm alternately proud and deeply ashamed to say that I have not succumbed to the mitten-knitting temptation. Little hands are stuffed into coat pockets and big brown eyes look up at me, pleading.
This is not easy. But, I must stay focused on this one big thing. There will be time for little things later.

Little things: I'm thinking about truffles lately. We are considering making batches of them as Christmas gifts. My friend Carmela is a pastry chef and talks with mouth-watering eloquence about all things chocolate. She told me about Earl Grey truffles and bittersweet chocolate-dipped tangerines. Does anything sound more delicious?

A final shot: The little one has begun to climb onto the bathroom stool whenever he can (to taste the soap and try out his brother's toothbrush). I couldn't resist a picture.

Go now and steal a piece of chocolate from your child's trick-or-treat bag. You deserve it.

I'm with ya on the mitten temptation! We've had a warm up, so I figure I've got a couple more weeks. But it's coming.
I just found your blog, via purlbee. Nice!!! check out my book blog for kids- you may find something to keep them busy so you can knit.
Yummmm. Carmela does make the best truffles.
Oh, I miss Carmela's treats!
I love the Malabrigo Mama, it's coming along nicely! And definitely a great idea to show off the reverse side, I really like how the texture and the color work together. Can't wait to see it all finished!
