My life with my farmer and our six children. Made possible by massive amounts of caffeine.

I still haven't gotten around to unpicking my scarf, and honestly have not had the desire to deal with it this week. So, I decided to continue my education and learn some knitting techniques I have not yet mastered. Things like increasing, decreasing, slipping one stitch, and yarn overs. This will allow me to move beyond the ubiquitous hat and scarf! I cast on a few stitches, and now will dig out my Vogue Guide to Knitting and practice! The book is an awesome baking book I found at the library and want to buy as soon as I can . It is full of delicious baked goods (I made the chocolate hazelnut buns for breakfast, they are excellent!), and the pictures are beautiful. The book is Warm Bread and Honey Cake, and the author os Gaitri Pagrach-Chandra. I have a whole sheet of paper listing all of the recipes I want to try from this book. Thanks to Ginny at small things for hosting the yarn along! Hopefully, in the near future, I will have some completed projects to share!
