Just a quick post tonight – not much to show you other than the eternal Hypoteneuse. Remember when I loved this project, couldn’t wait to knit it? Now I’m to the “ugh..when is this going to be done” stage. I’m on the 8th repeat – need to do 9 more. Sigh…
Don’t you wish the “I love this and love knitting it” stage lasted just a little longer? I do! I’m trying to take turns between this and the throw – which I still do love. I’m on the third repeat of that (4 more to go!). So I sort of view knitting on the throw as a reward for getting another repeat of Hypoteneuse done….but I will say that I think its going to be beautiful when its done. It is a good pattern – its just that I have so many other things I want to start soon (did you see the Spring Knitty?)
We had our St. Patrick’s dinner today instead of tomorrow..so I made some Irish Soda bread….
It was very good – I love homemade soda bread. I also made Corned Beef – awesome recipe. Just in case, you are looking for a new recipe – I highly recommend it. It was amazing. It was a little spicy so I think next time I’ll reduce the cayenne in the final glaze, but it was just amazing. Everyone really liked it and I think it was the best corned beef I’ve ever have. I love this magazine – we have always had very good luck with the recipes.
OK, time to go get ready for the week. Tomorrow is a very special day in our house, so I may just have another post. Happy Monday!
