Well, Needleclaus has delivered more presents, so I can share them here now.
Both of these were for my coworker. That’s merino-cashmere-nylon goodness.
And these are for some folks with cold feets.
In other news, I had made a bargain with myself and The Universe that if I got two As this semester, I would order fiber from a company I’ve been eyeballing forever. I don’t know if you know this, but when you make a promise to The Universe, you had better keep it? Remember those old Chiffon commercials – “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature?” Well, you don’t welch on a deal with The Universe, either.

We celebrated the season with Ramblin’s family on Saturday. I made a very good, uber-easy soup.
10-can (get it? Tin can – ha!) Dump Soup
1 29 oz. can mixed vegetables
3 cans minestrone condensed soup
2 cans kidney beans
1 can Rotel tomatoes (you pick the spice level – I went with original)
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1 49 oz. can chicken broth
Dump all of that in a large stock pot and simmer. It’s fantastic for a cold day, say for instance if the National Weather Service was predicting possibly 9″ of snow. Yes, that would be an awesome meal for something like that. And for the health-conscious, you could use low-sodium options on any or all of those and still have a tasty, tasty dish of warm goodness.
And Tugger would like you all to know that he’s anxiously awaiting Santa.
