Can’t finish without the finishing

I have a finished sweater! All the pieces sewn up together, and all the ends woven in – ta-da! My Reverse Me cardigan is officially entirely off the needles, and…well, ready to be packed away safely to be worn next winter. But still! It’s done, and now the part of my brain that’s been thinking […]

Finished object: Smoky Lake cardigan

Finishing a sweater, with time to spare to wear it in the current winter season, is a pretty awesome thing, my pals. I cast off this guy a couple of days ago and after a wash and generous blocking/drying time (bulky wool does take its time to dry), it was ready for the final step […]

We interrupt your Sunday broadcast…

…for just a little bit of gratuitous food picspam. Saturday was all about the kitchen, for me, and indulging in some new recipes. First, I assembled some S’mores Cupcakes:   They are delicious – but very sweet. Tooth-brushing and flossing is very much required. The only thing I missed in the recipe was the sprinkling […]
