2011 Cookie Exchange

Last night was the annual cookie exchange with my knit group.  They are such a wonderful group of ladies (and one guy).  They are smart, funny, beautiful and most of all talented.  There was a fabulous spread of cookies, even potato chip cookies!


I went a different route this year and instead of making cookies, I made Mocha Truffles.  I doubled the batch and thought I added extra espresso to really give it that extra punch but I don't think I added enough.  Oh well, they are still really yummy and will definitely give you a sugar high.


It was a fabulous night.  Our host was gracious and her home lovely.  I made some mug rugs from my Celebrate Christmas QAL blocks and gave them out as party favors.

However, the highlight of the night was when Charity presented her party favors.  She brought over a dozen of her beautiful knitted lace shawls for us to choose from.  Thank you, thank you, thank you Charity!!!  It was so generous of you and I'm looking forward to wearing it this winter.



  1. Delicious! Your mug rug has gotten quite a bit of acclaim in my house. I've been told it's too pretty to use! Thank you!!

  2. You're welcome! Please use the mug rug, I want them to be used and loved.
