What's Up Everybody!
I have decided that today is a good day to stay put. I had planned to do some running around, but it has been a morning of toppled furniture, spilled paper from the shredder and among other things, I walloped the lamp hanging over the table...so you can see why I might think twice about hitting the roads!
I have been busy friends, it's just that I have not been posting about anything because the stuff I am working on seems like it is taking forever and updating you all would be the equivalent (literally in some cases) of watching paint dry. zzzzzzzzzz, I just couldn't do that to you!
I do have snapshots of some of my projects for you...evidence that I have been busy. I've started a lap blanket for my mum, plus plans and yarn for two more. This is good tv knitting, and the lap size is not too cumbersome for on the go knitting.
I have tried this new bread recipe for Pretzel Bread, and baked up these yummy little batards. I had to freeze the majority of these mini loaves to keep them from being a temptation. The recipe, which you can find here at this great Greek food blog
is portioned to make 12 batard or boule, but the next time I will try making them smaller, more like dinner roll size. The little loaves worked out great though, I wrapped each one in parchment paper before bagging them for the freezer. I used my food saver, to seal them, being careful to remove only enough of the air to draw the bag gently snug, before sealing it closed.
In the background of the afghan picture, you can see my spinning wheel, I brought it up to finish up some spinning I had started quite awhile ago. I finished it up last night, so today I will do some plying.
Have a wonderful weekend, blessings friends!
