What kind of goodies? Well how about these?
Home made Peanut Butter cookies. You can find the recipe here. Some of them were in too long but they didn’t taste bad.
Knitting goodies: Like the Garterlac Dishcloth I finished last night:
Sugar and Cream on size 7(and 8 )US needles; color Summer Splash.(thanx Val for getting it for me!) I started on 7s but they were metal straights, so I switched to the 8s because they were bamboo and lighter in my hands. This is my first time working Entrelac. Yes, I realize Entrelac is usually in stockinette; I’ll get to that. But dishcloths are a necessary thing in the world of Don’t-Own-A-Dishwashing Machine. So why not have some fun with them? I like this pattern much more than the Mason-Dixon Knitting Ball Band one. Apologies to those who love the MDK. The Garterlac is much thinner and comes out smaller because it starts on fewer stitches.
After this foray into Entrelac, though, I want to work on the Market Squares bag from the XRX book, “Bags: A Knitter’s Dozen”; I’ve got some Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in some bright colors for that. But, I’ll have to hold off until I finish Kiri.(I will. I promise.)
Here’s where I’m at with the front of Sizzle:
This picture is more accurate in color, compared to the pic in the previous post. I’m not really rushing it, because it’s only going to get colder. But I do hope to get it done by the weekend. My birthday is Sunday, and if I get to go out Saturday night, I want to show off my *ahem*. Well, you know, my knitting skills!
For all you spinners, I’m still carding and spinning up the Unidentified Wool Fleece (hereafter referred to as, UWF) and this is how it’s looking:
I know, not a really good photo. I need to work on that. You can make it bigger if you click on it.
The Cabled Newsboy cap is on hold until I can get a smaller circ. Then again, now that I think about it.. the 2circs method might come in handy with this.. if I could find a second size 10.5 circ… 😉
Well, my brain is clogged so I’m gonna get me some tea!
P.S. If you’ve been looking for Episode 7 of BeanCast, Sorry. I’ve hit a podcasting block, so until I can come up with more, interesting things to talk about.. it’s on hold too.
