Since my booth shipped earlier this week, I've had the urge to start a new project. Actually several new projects. I have a very long list to choose from, and so many of them are tempting. I was proud of myself for showing restraint and casting on only one new project.
This is Anne Hanson's Curling, and it's not a completely new project for me. I had started Curling months ago with a different yarn. Sometimes the pattern and yarn aren't always a good fit. The result was OK, but I wasn't smitten with it. That would explain why it's languishing somewhere in a basket of UFOs.
I decided to have a second go at Curling with a different yarn.
I'm thrilled with the results. This one won't land in the UFO basket.
I don't usually bake much in the summer, but I stumbled across this recipe and decided to give it a try.
Skillet coffee cake. This recipe was a huge hit. The coffee cake is loaded with butter, sour cream and sugar complete with a streusel topping. Next time I think I'm going to add chunks of apple.
The summer parade of colors continues. I have my neighbor to thank for this week's color inspiration.
Just a hint of color.
