And none of which has produced any blogworthy posts.
Last week I did go sled-riding in my car down our driveway (about a 45 degree angle). Really it was ice-riding and I was relieved to have remembered which way to turn the steering wheel when I was going backwards. A smash into a giant maple tree and a roll into a sloping field was averted.
It's cold. It's snowy. While I'm not fond of it all, I'll refrain from complaining because I realize that there is at least a month and a half more to endure and I don't want to be complaining that long. I prefer to complain when I know there's an end in sight.
I baked and apple pie filling cake in the wrong pan. The internet told me I could use a 10" springfoam pan instead of a bundt pan. The internet LIED. The batter fit but it ended up soggy where the bundt hole would have been. I ate it anyway. Mr. Sophanne did not love it. What's not to love about eggs, sugar, flour, oil, cinnamon and apple pie filling? He's not a cake with stuff in it kind of guy. That didn't bother me much.
LisaBe displayed a finished shawl on Fbook. I loved it and copied her. It's Clockwork by Stephen West. Ooh La La. In terms of color play it reminds me of Brooklyn Tweed's Noro Scarf. I'm doing it in some chocolate malabrigo sock yarn and some STR from this year called "the fiber with no name." It's brought back some knitting mojo. I'm going to go out on a limb and say a good pattern with luscious yarn will always do that.
In the continuing effort to rid myself of the mounds of cascade that was purchased with delusional thoughts of knitting fantasies, I've started a log cabin afghan. I'm hoping that I stick with this one- the multi-colored babette just wasn't doing it for me in terms of stash busting.
I like the mindless knitting involved in this. It's also very interesting to see what happens to colors when you put them next to other colors. Generally, they become less offensive.
