I’ve finished my first knitting project for the year. A plain K2 P2 scarf in a couple of skeins of Lion Brand Suede. It’s very soft and cuddly but I haven’t worn it yet as this weird winter has been too warm. In fact, DH was out ‘shovelling’ water off the front patch of grass in the rain this week because when it freezes over the dogs need skates on to go out.
It has taken a village in the past year to help me combat migraines. I tried acupuncture with the sweetest Doctor of Chinese Medicine, Macy. She worked so very hard to help me. I made her this fabric basket as a small gift of appreciation. The tutorial can be found here . I made the sides higher than in the pattern and they were kind of “droopy”. Next time I will use a stabilizer to stiffen them up.
Today is baking day. Bread done and my favourite coffee cake now baking. I will share that recipe with you soon.
Can you help out a fellow blogger? Have you ever found this in a Moda charm pack? Or other Moda pre-cuts smaller than they are supposed to be? Linda at Living The Dream would like to know. Please pop over and have a read of her blog posts in regards to this issue.
That’s it for today, my friends. I better get in the kitchen and get a picture of that coffee cake before it starts to disappear. I’ll put the kettle on if you’d like to try a piece.
