Random things and a busy weekend..

I'm still knitting away. I had not planned on making a lot of gifts this year but I am making my fair share. It was all that sweater knitting that slowed me down. I just wanted you to notice the needles that are in the picture. I ordered them from Knit Picks about 2 weeks ago and love them. They are called Harmony and if you haven't tried a pair you should. They have a more pointed end - making life much easier when picking up stitches. I'm going to try socks again after the holidays and want to get another pair for that. I made more candy today. The container is full of chocolate covered raisins, peanuts and pretzels. I will be hiding this container. I made about the same amount last weekend and it was all gone by Monday.
It was finally nice enough in our area that I could get out and decorate the front of the house. I did get caught in the rain, but it only lasted for about 10 minutes and then stopped. Its just been to cold and snowy to be outside playing with lights and bows and it was today or forget it as it turns much colder again and more snow is coming. I'm hoping not the blizzards they are getting to the west!!
Going to be a busy week with lots going on.
