I am just a haze and fog of thought. I have partial lists floating, but it seems I feel sort of partial in a lot that I'm doing.
My last post was really slapped together, my sentences more stilted than usual. I was so busy this weekend so I posted completely using my phone. It's not as easy to include links and detail using the phone, so I apologize. This may be one of those examples where I have been spreading myself a little too thin. It was a fun and good busy weekend but it was a back to backer for sure.
So now I will try to round up and weave-in some loose-ends.
The scene behind the scenes:
A new to me show: Orphan Black. I'm hoarding the last episode of the first season to a proper moment I can knit to it. I started watching it with the Manfriend, but he goes to sleep earlier than me, and the whole ease of Free On Demand is/was just more than I could bear to wait for him. (Sorry Dear!)
An older FO being worn: I knit this sweater for Bella last year and I guess she was sporting it this Spring again recently. I'm always happy when someone sends me a picture of something that actually use. I might have to see about that hoodie pattern for her, for the Fall ...
A few links to the newest recipes I tried: The Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie Cookies from Epicurious/Bon Appetit (see if you can get a better gloss on your cookies, and let me know if you whipped the egg whites separately, as if to meringue). Here is the lemon pound cake recipe I used from weelicious. I opted to reduce the amount of zest and just did a plain vanilla glaze as some of the kids on the soccer team seem to have sensitive palettes. I used a mini bundt pan that is a PAIN to clean (hello cheap toothbrush) and a muffin top pan. (Both presents from my mother who is still constantly trying to nurture my domestic skills or lack thereof.)
A new favorite savory breakfast: Kepanie made eggs with green onion and pancetta and served it over rice. Brilliant. I like cheesey eggs as it. The boys put it on a piece of toast, but the rice speaks to me in secret loving comforting mom tones.
Making good on: Baby sweaters, fer reals. I bought buttons today at lunch and I see a sweater FO picture coming your way hecka soon. Pink socks. Though I should've cast on that other baby project. I had to see if I could make some more tracks. I think I messed up one side a bit.
