Craftvent 2016 - Day 18

No yarn in the drawer today - hot chocolate mix instead.  I will admit to being a hot chocolate snob.  I guy Godiva Hot Chocolate powder and of course use milk.  I also dose my hot chocolate with Godiva Chocolate Liquor.  I also dose my milk shakes with Godiva Chocolate Liquor.  Yum.  These packets do have a purpose in my life though. Say you are out somewhere, at a meeting, or staying in a hotel, and you just can't get the boiling water you need to brew a proper cup of tea (Maggie Smith has a wonderful tirade on the need for boiling water to brew a proper cup of tea in the Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel that I completely identify with) - mix a packet of hot chocolate mix with coffee.  It turns even an indifferent coffee into something palatable.

I did finish knitting Section 2/Clue 3, using up all of the first 10 skeins.
I just had enough of skein 10 to work the 4 rows called for because I had added an extra repeat of Section 1/Clue 2 using colors 9 and 10.
