Big knitting plans for the rest of the week. Sound crazy? Sure it does. There are weeks that go by and not a stitch is knit (sad but true). I fully intend to make up for lost knitting time this week. Yarn is wound and ready to go – now the only thing that remains to be seen is if my hands and wrists will keep up with my will to knit. In the que for the week:
Commuter – primo worsted- Barely Birch (FUN buttons) and Elmer T (more fun buttons!)
Phaedra – primo worsted – Humphrey or Fat Fish Blue
Thisbe – primo worsted – this months classics
Albina Armwarmers – handspun from Sock Summit
And maybe, just maybe at least cast-on for Mustard Scarf (to use another fun button).
Before I go, I owe you a few contest winners. You guys are so clever. I must say, I get the biggest kick out of your comments and suggestions! Several observations (nothing scientific here, just quick observations)…. you love reading the classics (Pride & Prejudice, To Kill a Mockingbird) and cannot get enough of caprese salad or anything from the grill. There were a few surprises and ‘excuse me, what did you say?’ moments. For instance – salmonberry pie?! What? I have to do some research on that one. And one suggested recipe that has already been tried, tested and enjoyed this week. Thank you, everyone for your great suggestions. For some fun reading suggestions and tasty recipe ideas I highly recommend going back through the comments.Oh, and I have one quick recipe suggestion for you guys. Try them, you’ll love them.
So, back to the winners of the tangled mess~
