The Accidental Domestic Goddess
I’m finally making some progress on the Secret Sweater. Even with all the chores I’ve been getting done around the house. We have a lot going on right now, so I decided to put most of my knitting away and just focus on two projects. Little does my husband know, this is actually my primaryContinue reading “A Tale of Two Sweaters”
Well, cooking dinner last night was an interesting affair. I had it all planned out in my head. It was going to be perfect and it is sort of one of my fallback recipes when we’re low on food and energy. Easy peasy, right? Oh my goodness am I good at making a mess ofContinue reading “Dinner Was a Disaster”
I have so much to do today and this snow is making me want to just curl up and knit. The area I live in is not known for its snow removal abilities and most people have vehicles that don’t mind the snow. My car, however, hates the cold and gets mad whenever I tryContinue reading “Snow Outside Means Knitting Inside”
I keep forgetting to work on my husband’s secret sweater. I’ve been so focused on finishing the shawl that it doesn’t even dawn on me until after he’s home that I’m not any closer to done with it. To be honest, I’m a bit of a scatter brain, but I like to chalk it upContinue reading “Forgetting Sweaters”
I really should go to bed. It’s late and we are not ready for the morning rush at all. I’m tired and my week is really only beginning, but the silence is just so delicious right now. Between snow days, vacation days, and the extra day of work for Valentines weekend I have had veryContinue reading “Another Late Night”
I’m honestly having a lot of fun knitting these, but at the same time, I wish they were done already. I’m getting sweater fever and would rather be working on the visions in my head. Thankfully, I only have so many needles, so unless I want to put these projects on some scrap yarn, IContinue reading “The Struggle is Part of the Joy”
I’ve made it this far and I’m ripping it all out. I’m not happy with it. This cable doesn’t really feel right for my husband. So, I thought I’d try this Baroque Cable and was in the process of writing it out from the chart, figuring out the abbreviations that work best for me asContinue reading “Frogged Secret Sweater”
Back again to Monday. And what a glorious Monday it is! When I walked into the house this morning, after dropping the kids off at school, it struck me all of a sudden. The silence. The beautiful, uninterrupted quiet. I simply stood there for a moment, one hand on the doorknob, the other drifting downContinue reading “Another Monday”
So I’m making a third version of my Sister Shawls, only this one is not a Sister Shawl, but is definitely for someone amazing. I’m using two strands of yarn for this one and am hoping to make it a bit smaller than the last two. This first section turned out beautifully and it wasContinue reading “Another Story Shawl”
A variation of Chicken and Waffles. I believe this is a bit more along Southern style lines with the breaded chicken. I think it’s usually fried chicken. I’m not an expert. What I’ve come to know as Chicken and Waffles in Pennsylvania is shredded chicken in gravy over mashed potatoes on top of a waffle.Continue reading “Quick Dinners and a New Way to Snack”
