Knitting

Bright, Shiny and New

SOMETHING REALLY NEAT

Babymama and Babydaddy got me the coolest thing for Christmas, it’s called Q&A A Day, a five year journal that asks a single, simple (or not so simple once it’s thought about) question a day.  Each day a new question with room for five years of answers.  For example:  the January 1 question is “What is your mission?”.  I’m looking forward to answering each question as it comes and reading the previous year’s answers.

ON THE NEEDLES

For this week’s WIP, the Catnip socks are still up.  I’m turning the heel on the second sock and have high hopes for FO Friday this week.  Here’s my progress:

ON THE STOVE

I tried a new recipe this evening, thanks to Pinterest and the blog, the-girl-who-ate-everything.com and it was an out of the ballpark hit, both with me and Mr. Iknead.  Here’s the pic from the original blog:

So good on a cold, damp day!

IN THE OVEN

The last piece of holiday pie (blackberry) is finally gone, thanks to Mr. Iknead.  Now I’m casting around for something to bake, maybe a recipe from King Arthur Flour for Baked Raised Doughnuts.  It won’t happen tomorrow I’m pretty certain, we’re having some electrical work done on our  house so I’m pretty sure we’ll have no electricity most of the day, but the next day for sure.  Off the oven subject but I’m especially excited about the LED undercabinet lighting we’re having installed.  No more dark corners or eyestrain trying to read in the dark.  Exciting, right??

There are two things to aim at in life:  first, to get what you want, and, after that, to enjoy it.  Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second.  Logan Pearsall Smith
