First of all, the MKAL is Follow Your Arrow by Ysolda Teague and I have completed the first two clues so far. This shawl is quite interesting. There will be 5 clues, and each one is actually a choice between 2 pattern options. The result is there will be 32 different variations possible. I just could not resist jumping in on this knit along, and, of course, I had ample yarn in my stash to choose from. The details are on my ravelry project page.
Now, to the Hot Toddy bit! The first one I had ever tried was at my sister's house this past Christmas. Those ones were delicious, with rum and butter, honey and hot water. (I think that was all)... Tonight I decided I should make myself something delicious and for some strange reason, I wasn't thinking about chocolate, but a hot toddy. I checked some online recipes, and found there are many variations. Rum, Whiskey, Brandy can all be used. black tea, green tea, sugar, honey, lemon, ... it seems anything you feel like stirring in will work.
I didn't measure (maybe that is why it is so wonderfully rich and delicioius) but started with honey and lemon and rye whiskey. I added in hot black tea, and a spoonful of margarine. This just might be the beginning of a new tradition.
Those are my boxing week special purchase. Knitting styled mugs and a tea pot. They were marked down to about a $1 a piece.. how could I resist?
Also, in the how could I resist category, is Pixie. She apparently can't resist sticking her little pink cat nose into the frame anytime she hears a camera click. There we have it, the perfect picture, cat, knitting, cute teapot and a Hot Toddy. Enjoy!
Have a good weekend everyone!
