Everything's peppermint around here lately. I have peppermint kisses (like the chocolate ones, only these are white "chocolate" with peppermint bits). I have candy cane shower gel. I think half of the holiday cookie recipes I'm contemplating are peppermint related. I shouldn't have been surprised by the sudden urge I had to spin up the lovely peppermint-colored batts I got last month. It's nice soft merino that looks like solid pink but has little bits of nearly red in it. I bought it because it involved a donation to breast cancer research. I'm an idiot--I should've kept track of the person who did it so I could get some more of her fiber in the future. It's really nice wool.
