I’ve really been enjoying my knitting time in the evenings, partially because I’ve been pairing it with yummy beverages and snacks.

The other night after cooking a fairly elaborate dinner and washing a whole bunch of dishes, I ventured out in the rain to Trader Joe’s where it is rumored that they sell vegan marshmallows. That rumor is true! Back at home I made some peppermint hot chocolate with the recently procured marshmallows and settled in for some colorwork knitting.

On that same shopping trip I picked up some crumpets – the official snack of the Indie Gift-A-Long. I’m not sure why that is, but the chat thread is full of people talking about crumpets. So the next evening I made myself crumpets with lemon curd and my favorite coconut black tea in preparation for starting a mini Cloudhopper hat for Clara (so I can get that Viola hat back that she took at Thanksgiving!)

I could get used to this evening knitting and snack time.
