Where I’m At

So, there’s not a lot of progress to show for Bespoken at the moment. I’ve knit a few more inches since my last update but it looks the same I promise. As for Nanook, it’s been even slower going. But, I did complete the first of three repeats on the collar this morning.

20131120-075531.jpgThe only other project I’m currently working on is a pair of socks for a family friend. I just turned the heel on the first sock and am about a third of the way down the foot. They’re black so they’re a little hard on my eyes but they’ll get there – before Christmas I’m sure.

Monday night we went to see Mary Gauthier. It was a great concert, as always. If you haven’t heard of her, she’s definitely worth checking out.

Last night, I made a peach cobbler that was so easy and to die for. It’s the second one I’ve made in the past few weeks though I tried a different recipe this time. I think I like this one a bit better.

Have a great day, happy knitting!

Random Thursday

1. I haven’t been knitting much lately which is the main reason for my blog absence. Of course, now I’m diving into two big projects.

2. For NaKniSweMo I’m knitting Bespoken for Hubby. I’m using Hempwol in the color Terra which is a rich brown. I’m late to the game already because although I started my swatch before the November 1st cast on date, I’m just getting going on the sweater tonight.

3. Meanwhile, I couldn’t stop myself from also casting on Nanook for myself since I bought the yarn already. I’m using Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool in Oatmeal.

4. Just because, I got this adorable phone case at Target today.

5. I’m excited about Thanksgiving, how about you? This next week I’m going to go ahead and do my shopping for the big day and I’m already planning the menu. This year I’m going to try at least two new recipes out.

6. I’ve been cooking a lot more than is usual for me lately. Part of it is driven by the fact that I’ve suddenly (due to a new medication) become a little repulsed by cooking meat so I’ve been on the hunt for good vegetarian recipes. We’ve really been enjoying the meals I’ve come up with for us. Tonight is Vegetable Curry.

7. That’s me for now. I’ll definitely be catching up here about the sweaters in progress. Now I’m off to watch Thursday Night Football! Happy knitting!

Random Wednesday

1. My Mom is visiting for the week. We’ve been running around like crazy doing things. Yesterday we went to the coast and it was a gorgeous day.

20130828-144404.jpgWe stopped and had lunch at Mo’s, it’s a tradition for us.

2. Last week I started a pair of yoga socks for my Mom. I’m loosely following a pattern from Paton’s website. I’m not actually knitting the textured pattern, just using the numbers.

3. We stopped at a casino on the way home from the coast and there were beautiful flowers outside.

4. Last, we also went to World Market for the first time. I was beyond giddy over all the international foods they have. This is just one thing I bought. I actually got quite carried away.

I hope you’re enjoying as we near the end of summer too!
