I don't have Pogona out of my system. I'm smitten with the way it wears and would love to have it in a couple of colors but am resisting the urge to cast on another one. I'm feeling weak in the resistance department so will see how long I can hold out. There's a beautiful gray I took out of the dye pot yesterday . . .
Instead I've picked up Yvaine, the cozy shawlette I ditched for Pogona.
Yvaine is a trusty traveling companion, pictured here on the road. Forgive the poor lighting and somewhat off colors.
This design is really what I need right now. I'm gearing up for another event, and life is a bit more chaotic. Yvaine is straight ahead, cruise control knitting; the yarn, Bertha, is a dream to work with. What more could I ask for? I've modified the pattern with one more stockinette/seed stitch section. After that it's all garter to the finish line. Full steam ahead.
I love DPNs. I love gnomes. Imagine my delight when I came across these. Go ahead and take a look. Be sure to watch the charming video clip. While I want some gnomes in the worst way, I'll have to satisfy myself with buying the pattern for now.
And in the kitchen . . . I'm always on the look out for new and interesting recipes. I don't like complaints about boring food, so I'm excited when I find something that looks like it will go over well. Some recipes make the cut, some don't.
My latest find - sweet potato biscuits. I love them. I love them so much that I don't care if anyone else likes them.
They are perfect for the season with a taste that is not too strong, not too bland. This recipe is a keeper.
