Again...it's been a while. I just can't seem to find a minute to sit still these days. Tot had a birthday celebration. In my world birthday celebrations last a while.
Tonight I have been baking like a mad woman. On my side of the family, we all take turns hosting holidays. This year it is at my Mom's. I'm bringing a layered Upside Down Pineapple Cake with a butttercream icing and pecans and....are you ready....seriously I believe this might be to die for.....a Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake with a yummy little ganache topped off with quartered Reese Cups. Yum. Hello ten pounds.
So as you can see I have been a busy girl.
I have been knitting. I've made Juliet out of Rowan Cocoon, 1 fingerless glove out of the new O-wool classic that just came in. So cute. The wool is delightful. Socks for Tot and my poor husband who has begged. Now he has some. It's not that I didn't want to knit for him, I just know that now I will be knitting more for him. He will want lots and lots. I held out as long as I could. I have a Jaywalker going out of Blue Moon in Gingerbread Dude. I'm in love with this colorway. It looks just gingerbread colors to me. I want more. My first pair of Jaywalkers. What's up with that. Does it always feel all tight and tense? I'm feeling like the size 1 needles are maybe a bit small, but I'm too far in at this point. Next time a 2 please. I'm trying to knit some necessities for Tot for the winter.....if we ever have one. 68 degrees today, the day before Thanksgiving. Global warming? Al Gore says so. It kind of freaks me out, alot.
We won't go there tonight. It's a bit late. I could ramble. I won't.
I have cornbread in the oven. What time is it?
I still have to make the icing for the cake too.
I have been trying to post more pics too. No luck. That makes me so crazy. I don't understand why it works sometimes and not others.
