Vanilla Caramel lollipop.  Caramel – need I say more?

Symphony Bar with almonds and toffee.  I have no control when it comes to chocolate and toffee.  Add in some almonds and there will be no stopping me.  I know I will eat this entire bar at one time.

Colorful ribbon.  Nine yards of beauty!

Only four more days of goodies.  I’m so spoiled.

 

Progress, sorta

My Bacardi Cardi is a slow go.  I’ve got seven different balls of yarn tethered to my needles at all times.

I’ve done a lot of Fair Isle knitting before but not with so many different colors of yarn at the same time.

It took a full seven minutes to untangle the mess last evening before I went to bed.  Granted I was tired.  And frustrated.

Do you have a secret for keeping things neat and untangled when you do Fair Isle knitting?  Please share in the comments.  Or commiserate with me.

October 16: Land O Lakes™ Amaretto Cocoa mix.  I love flavored cocoa mix and used to add amaretto or hazelnut creamer to plain cocoa to make my own decedant, flavored drink.  I will enjoy this on the next cold day.
