Hello! How are you? Whatchu been doin the last week or so?
I've been knitting and trying to stay dry...I am so tired of rain and wind and dreariness.
I have a nice Halloween sock done and have a good start on the second one that I cast on Thursday night...fastest socks ever. Yes, I intentionally made them not match and I put a different cuff on each one...kinda fits in with the Halloween concept I think. It was a struggle doing it though as I am incredibly a matchy kinda personality. I'm being strong though and making myself do them as individual creations, hah!
Started the first one just a week ago yesterday while I was hanging out at City Knitting. Gotta hurry so I can actually wear em on Halloween. The yarn is Austermann Step with Aloe. I love this yarn, it feels fabulous on your feet.
I think this afternoon I'll bake up some peanut butter cookies
just to have the smell in the house. This time of year I love to smell cookies baking or soup simmering.
Last weekend I was making a big pot of Chicken n Chorizo Stoup ala Rachel Ray, for which I had to brown some sliced chorizo in olive oil before adding the soupy part and The Saint caught me...
I'm a bit short for turning chorizo in the big pot on the stove so needed a little help. I didn't realize he was getting so sneaky with the camera til I downloaded to post this morning. snarky laugh here - thanks Honey!
I've been listening to loads of podcasts the past few weeks. If you like listening while you're knitting or sewing they're some pretty interesting folks out there. Here's a list of a few of my faves...you should check 'em out.
Stash & Burn
Gotta do some dishes then I'm off to City Knitting for a while, perhaps the yarny atmosphere will lift the gloom for a little while. You all have a great week. Thanks for stoppin by.
Boomer says hey!
