Well it’s been a day of not accomplishing much — but that’s okay — an extra day off work should be for lazing about which I don’t do very often.
One issue was I must be hungry for something sweet. LOL I decided I’d make some Mexican Wedding cake cookies and take them in to work on Thursday (my good friend’s favorite cookie) but that left me two days at home with my most favorite cookies ever. That simply is not a good thing. I took the butter out to soften, I put the butter back — maybe I’d just make a half batch of sugar cookies to ice — put the butter back out — I don’t really like icing cookies — put it back in fridge. LOL I’m over the cookie thing now. Jello and coolwhip was an excellent dessert. But if Santa wanted to leave just one frosted sugar cookie under my tree, I wouldn’t object. He’s just not going to find any cookies for him under my tree. LOL or any beer. Yes – as true Wisconsinites, at our house we occasionally left out cookies for Santa but by the time he got to our house he was tired of cocoa and cookies — so he got summer sausage, cheese and crackers and a beer. 🙂
I did get some more on my Loopy knitting project done – I think I have about six more beads to add on the scarf and I will be at the half way point It doesn’t look very big, and it is the smaller size of the two given, but it is very stretchy. It will be a pretty little accent scarf. I’ve decided I’m not necessarily fond of knitting with lace yarn but it’s not bad. For the right pattern, I’d use it again (and I know there is other lace yarn in my stash) but it wouldn’t be my “go to” yarn. The beads are slipped over a stitch with a crochet hook before the stitch is knit — super easy to do and I can’t believe I haven’t tried using beads on anything before.
But I think I need to go wind the yarn I’m thinking about using for a mystery KAL I’m going to do that starts the 26th. I need to actually swatch it and see how the yarn I’m thinking about will look — yes I said the dreaded “swatch” word but they actually don’t take long. So jammies, some yarn winding and hunting up of the proper needles and I’ll be all set.
