Happy Malabrigo May!
Lots of excuses to type with the letter "M" today.
Today I dug up this lovely hank of Malabrigo in dewberry sock yarn. Honestly, it hurts a little to set this one free, but I have another hank of another purple Malabrio or um, 2 in the stash. How much does a slow knitter really need? I want to spread some knit happiness and you guys make me knit happy all the time.
Would you like to give it a home? Can you envision a pattern with it?
Leave me a comment with some way of getting in touch with you (like a Ravelry handle) in this post by end of day next Monday, May 12th and maybe it can be yours!
Thanks for all your nice comments about my family and our food. You're right I'm lucky to have such a thoughtful family. The weekend felt good after shaking off that "edgy anxiety" as Karen put it so well -- that was exactly how I felt! I think we found a good balance of doing things and relaxing a bit.
It was a productive weekend for me, which was really nice. I kept some spring sorting going, getting 2 bags of clothes off to Goodwill and sorted 2 stacks of books for donation and sell back.
And I finally took a crack at a recipe that I've been meaning to try ... for ages, The Pioneer Woman's Oatmeal Whoopie Pies
I followed the recipe and used store-bought marshmallow creme. I really couldn't be bothered with making my own filling. It is very important to freeze these so they set if you do not eat them immediately. They begin to ooze! (I am not sure just how long they need to come to room temperature, we pulled these from the freezer before our Sunday match so they were out covered in the sun for about an hour and a half, and held up OK) The PW thoughtfully prewarns of this condition with the marshmallow fluff, and offers another option in her recipe.
Oh and I also had some mint/dark chocolate chip cookie bars I baked on a quarter sheet. Not the best photo, but I'm working on that too. :)
