I've been feeling down lately, mostly because of the gray weather. So I decided to go back to sitting in front of my happy light, and it's working! This was a very relaxing, productive weekend.
I got to bake -- this is applesauce spice cake. Easily one of the more expensive cakes I've ever made, it calls for 1 3/4 cups of maple syrup! Next time, I'll buy B grade.
I also have a new knitting project: the Back to School u-neck vest from Fitted Knits. I'm making the smallest size in leftover yarn from the Dad Sweater. Look, the color actually looks burgundy! This is the closest I've come to getting a good, true-to-life picture of this yarn. I have about 7" of ribbing done and will be knitting another 2 because I'm long-waisted.
Here is my progress on Calorosa -- aka the Pink Socks. Yes, those are bobble-like entities. I could push them into the lace and have them be dents, but for some reason, I like them when they're sticking out. If I'm doing the k5tog, I want it to be visible.
Also, I don't yet have 5 people for the paying it forward craft-style. If you don't want to do it because of money, time, or simply 'cause you don't wanna, I understand. But in case you do... see my previous post.
OK, that's it for now. I have to go get the burritos out of the oven, then put my foot up. I managed to twist my ankle and it still hurts a bit. "Look where you're going" is really good advice, whether you're 5 or in your 30's.
