Yeah...that's a German thing. It is a liquor made from raw egg yolk, lots of sugar and whipped unsweetened cream. Throw in some evaporated milk and some Everclear and you have yourself a German Christmas tradition.
My daughter helped me find my Mom's recipe, so I made it yesterday. Yum!
I rewarded myself with a small shot glass this afternoon for finishing and casting off the three shawls at a time.
Here is a pic.:

All unblocked of course. The space I usually use is currently occupied by a Christmas Tree, so I have to block them one at a time.
They were really a fun knit and so quick, too. I will definitely make more of these. Here is also a photo of the first one blocking:

I just don't understand why these photos never end up where I would like them in the text. And I dislike it very much when I have to ask my 13-year-old how to do something on the computer.

So I rewarded myself with another little glass after washing the first shawl, and another little one after I got done putting it on the blocking board. :)

My basket with unfinished knitting projects is looking strangely empty now. But I have promised myself not to cast anything new on until the First of the New Year.
I will probably change that, if I get myself another little glass of....well, you know, lol.

Yesterday I saw Nitecrew again, with a different singer (the front girl of the band 4More, don't know her name...). She is pretty amazing.

I wish all of you Happy Holidays (whatever you celebrate) and a Happy New Year. May all your resolutions hold stead fast and be successful.
Thanks for following my antics through the year 2010. See you next year.


  1. And my little taste of this fine tradition is where, may I ask?!? ;-)

  2. Yay! You got your Ticker working. :)

    Your shawls are beautiful!
