This week I am starting the series off with Apple Cider Donuts. Last weekend, we had a little Halloween party to attend and I thought "What would be more perfect to bring to the party than Apple Cider Donuts?" I have this donut pan from Williams-Sonoma and I set about to find the perfect recipe.this recipe and it was "the one." I followed it almost exactly except that I didn't have any whole wheat flour so I just used all white all-purpose flour.

Sweaters for the Twins:
A Sweater for My Husband:
My oldest son is at an age where I am not so sure he would wear a sweater if I knit one for him. He is really into sports and wears nothing but athletic pants and t-shirts. I bought him a pair of jeans recently and he looked at me and said "I am NOT wearing those." Kids - amiright? He will wear a hat/scarf/mittens if they are cool enough so I am throwing those on the list too.
I'm hoping that this list isn't too much for the next two months. I was going to throw a sweater on there for me too but I'm thinking that would be over the top!

Tatum's favorite color is purple so I knit up a girlie hat in a super soft purple yarn. I decided to make a cute animal hat for the other one. I had my eye on that owl hat from a back issue of Debbie Bliss Magazine. My boys were more than a little upset that they didn't get to keep it. Here are the details:
I actually designed the purple hat myself. I love the way it came out but I think it still needs a few tweaks. As soon as I get around to that I will publish it. And, of course, it is called Tatum. It is knit with Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Brush in the color Mulberry. This yarn is so soft and knits up beautifully with a bit of a halo. I love it!

My husband and three boys have all been asking me to knit sweaters for them so at some point I am going to have to choose patterns for them but honestly, I have been toying with the idea of designing and I've got some ideas running through my head. We'll see how productive I can be in 2016.
