I've been knitting a lot in my spare time (as opposed to cooking...) and I'm very happy with the progress I'm making!
First off, I'm over halfway done with my current WIP, a scarf for the second Knit Princess book! I'm really pumped at this chance to get one of my patterns published, and this scarf is a very easy knit. It's in seed stitch, and after I'm done knitting the body I'm going to embroider pinstripes down it :)
I'm also making progress on my mommy-inspired socks. I'm almost done and I can't figure out a pattern to use... I want something lacy, of course, but I'm torn between two patterns.
The one on the left is Mermaidia, from Purdy Peas. (Photo from Purdy Peas!) The one of the right is Spring Pools, a ravelry pattern by the Lovely Linda. (Photo from MomofTwins on Flickr) Right now, I'm leaning more towards Spring Pools, just because of it's gorgeous but simple look! My mom is not a knitter, so she will have a very small idea of the amount of time that gets put into a pair of socks, so I don't really know if I need to go all-out.
Oh, also, delicious thing of the week in my kitchen:
I made these cheesy biscuits with the mountain of leftover cheese from a taco night we had. I also thre in a bunch of leftover thyme and a whole clove of garlic, and, well, they are delicious. I improvised a recipe that I found online, which is basically a biscuit without bisquick or buttermilk! I made about 20 and all but 3 were gone in twenty minutes. Success!
Hope you guys on the internet have a not so stressful week... the rest of the week is easy for me, it's practically the weekend already in college-land :)
