Which gives me lots of time for web browsing. Isn't this is a great idea for shipping those college care packages?. I need to get the Valentine's Day ones together soon and I'm definitely going to try this. If I get busy, I may include a couple of these too. These look cute too, although I think I'd choose a different fabric? And why am I so fascinated with hearts these days??
Here's the shawl I'm obsessively working on; isn't it pretty?
And although I shouldn't have photographed this color on the identically colored couch, here is the scarf I work on at work. I think the pattern would be better with a more drapeable yarn than the Manos I'm using, but I think I'll keep it. Soaking it afterwards will soften it up and this is a warm yarn.
I have been taking breaks from the knitting and sitting and snow monitoring. Right now I have a batch of bread rising and a pot of beans soaking. I love doing both on snowy days. I used to bake bread all the time when I was a stay at home mom with small daughters but I haven't made any in years. My Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook makes it so easy I should do it every weekend but I always put it off. And I'm thinking of making these cookies, courtesy of a link from this blog.
