I'm a wee late to celebrate my 5th blogiversary! (well only a day ;)
It's been an interesting 5 years. I've met a lot of people online, and some in real life, started knitting lace and socks which I didn't think I'd ever do (mainly the lace part ;) Now spinning..yikes, no more crafts!!
It's been a busy week and hopefully after our Knitting guild party this Saturday, I can relax a bit and get some knitting done on a test knit and a sweater you haven't seen yet. Have no idea where my sock mojo has gone...does it count that I have like 3 in progress..
Monday evening had daughter and I playing with chocolate...
Farthest away is pecan, middle is butterfinger, front is well, you can see holiday deco candies. So many possibilities to decorate those pretzel rods ;)
Now they sit in these cute bags...
No, wait, I mean these bags...
Wonder what else is inside?
Lest you think I'm a perfect baker...sometimes I fail..
Case in point...flatty whoopie pies...we won't talk about the extra crunchy batch either ;) Waaaa I wish I hadn't lost my Mom's recipe!! I have been unable to get it right...
Mini bundt cake fail...well sorta..
They don't look too bad here, but when you have a double batch of batter and only 12 able to cook at a time and yeah, you have to wash the pan after each batch..um..nope... I made a larger bundt cake and the rest is turning into these!
Thank you to my friends both online and in real life! Your laughs, encouragements, enabling to purchase things, and just sticking around and reading cheers me up to no end.
There will be prizes so just leave a comment and I'll pick 5 winners, one for each year of blogging. What are the prizes you ask?
In no particular order:
**1 pattern of your choice by Irishgirlieknits. She tells me that I inspired her to blog more. Well blog more she did and now she's a pretty awesome designer travelling all over and meeting lots of you...(yes I am a wee bit jealous, I wanna meet her IRL!)
**Yarn..hah of course! 2 winners
**Braid of spinning fiber--sorry you gotta spin this yourself ;) 2 winners
So leave a comment and check back here Monday to see if you've won. Of course if you are a fiber winner and you don't spin, I'll make sure you get yarn and visa versa.
College guy comes home Friday so I'm sure I'll be busy cooking his favorite dinners and trapsing all around town with him. I'm on call for the holidays...please let my pager be silent...
