I’ve been having one of those days – you know, the type where things just don’t go as planned? It started last night, actually – I couldn’t sleep. At all. I woke up every hour at first, then every 30 minutes…and then down to every 10. So right before the alarm was supposed to go off for work, I decided that perhaps working without sleep wasn’t a good idea – so I took the day off. Of course, I couldn’t go back to sleep. But I finally did take a nap early this afternoon, so I feel much better now. I hate when that happens, don’t you?
I’ve been planning on making lemon cupcakes for a few weeks. I found a great recipe, bought all the ingredients. Made them this afternoon (after my nap). And they are now in the garbage – they were seriously concave and just a paper thing full of greasy crumbs…yum. Sigh…I should have known when I was making it – the recipe didn’t sound remotely like a cupcake recipe (cornstarch?). What was I thinking? So now I have 1.5 jars of lemon curd to do something with (it was for the frosting)…any ideas?
Thanks for all the input on Gale – I did frog it on Saturday. I realized that I just kept on asking everyone I ran into what they would do – and that was a sign that I just wasn’t into it. I’ll keep on looking for another pattern for the yarn – it is beautiful and I loved working with it.
So what to knit (and don’t say Cobblestone!)….I had seen a beautiful wrap on Margaret’s blog done in Silky Wool which I had in my stash. But I was iffy – until I saw Chris’ at knitting group – she is doing it in a heavier weight , but it was gorgeous (Chris is having a contest too – so go check out her wrap and enter her contest!). So when I came home from knitting group, I started it.
I can’t capture the color of the yarn accurately – it is a very nice teal (blue again…..sigh). I’m really enjoying the pattern – I memorized it the first repeat so I can just sit and knit on it mindlessly. Oh, what is it? Hypoteneuse. I think this will be a nice, warm wrap. And I think it will be done fairly quickly – can’t beat that!
Fortunately, this is the one thing going according to plan today….
Have a good week!
