february lady sweater finished!

A photo ...
I'm pretty happy with this one. I made it a bit small, but this yarn (KnitPicks WoTA) grows quite a bit during blocking so it ended up fitting perfectly!

Love. Now, I must resist the urge to buy more yarn so that I can use up some of my stash and finish all those hibernating projects. I just started some socks and some mitts this week but I think the socks are going to win - they are mindless so good for knitting on our road trip. I also want to knit puppy a second sweater, I have one all picked out but would have to buy yarn .. uh oh, dilemma!!

disaster in the kitchen

My attempt to try some new and exciting baking has ended badly ... I decided to make Stained Glass Cookies - basically, a rolled cookie with a cutout in the middle that you fill with melted candy. I don't know what they put in candy these days but in under 2 minutes (before the cookies had actually baked) my entire house smelled so toxic it's giving me a headache 2 hours later. I will NOT be making those again.

On the bright side, I finished my FLS yesterday. It's blocking tonight. Will hopefully post pictures soon.
