Here's a work-in-progress post for Kim. This is the little Norwegian sweater I cast on for my cousin's mountain man baby. Good thing it's a quick knit or he'll outgrow it before I even get it done. Good incentive. I totally screwed up my math so when I got to the patterning I had to completely change it and come up with my own. I pulled out the graph paper and started fiddling. I learned something. Norwegian patterns are much easier to do on and odd number of stitches. Of course I had an even number. Grrr. I'll share the chart I did in a future post. You can just make out the column of green on the upper left that will serve as my stitching line when it comes time to cut.
I was supposed to meet an Elann friend for lunch yesterday but they closed the roads down on post and the boys got yet another snow day home from school. I would really have liked to go meet T but I have to admit... our backyard is beautiful as a winter wonderland. You can't even see the houses behind us.
Yesterday was a perfect morning for fresh warm muffins. These blueberry muffins are FABULOUS! I just beat the butter and sugar by hand instead of pulling out the Kitchen Aid and they were light and airy and perfect. I happen to have the book and love it. It's chock full of excellent recipes. You can also find the recipe here.
