Christmas Goodies

These are the last of my dish cloths that I am knitting for Christmas - a total of 13! Some were already given out & the remainder to be given on Christmas Eve. I have enjoyed knitting these dish cloths & the last 2 (the bottom 2 on the picture) are Grandma's Favorite that I found here. I think I will be knitting some more of these dishcloths for myself as they are so pretty & useful. Here they are all wrapped up with a piece of hand made essential oil soap .....
Now for some non-knitting news - I made some Christmas goodies - I am not a good cook & only cooked from recipes that do not require the use of more than 1 pot. As for baking, any recipe that does not require the use of an electric mixer always catch my eyes. So when I saw this recipe, it was too good to be true & I had to make these little goodies.....
..... Mini Christmas Puddings - no mixing of ingredients (except melting the white chocolate) & no baking. I was so proud of myself & gave some to a friend's kids ....


..... they look so great & make really good gifts to children & adults too. These are definitely on my list for next Christmas.

As my parents are arriving tonight for a 3-week visit, I guess this will be my last post before the holidays, so I will like to wish all of you a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year - 2008 will be another great year for all of us knitters - more projects, more yarn, more accessories, more .......

I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday together. Your dishcloths remind me about some cotton chenille I have to make facecloths. Cute little puddings, they look so fancy!
