I put together these 3 little jars for the girls for solstice. They don't read my blog which is why I am showing them early. I like to give them handmade, or partially handmade, gifts for solstice and I had so much fun making these. The bottles came from Cargo, here in Portland. They are small, only about 3 inches high, and the goodies inside came from Collage, also in Portland. These shops are very dangerous places for me, I try not to go in them very often. Collage carries quite a few miniatures now, which I find delightful.
- I had a cooking fail today—caramel sauce. I am doubly bummed about it because I have made caramel sauce so many times with no issues, but this time I tried it in the microwave (why!?) and not only did it boil over, but them got too hard, and then separated. It was sad. I made Pete throw out all the evidence, so now I am pretending it didn't happen.
- I can't stop watching the Hobbit Office skit on SNL.
- I'm excited to start this clayoquot toque pattern (free!) from Tin Can Knits after the holidays.
