Yesterday something came over me (really, I think it must be the lack of sleep) and Bunny and I baked cookies for three hours. I. Don’t. Bake. Ever.
Most days I am simply content to look at the flour, sugar, spices, and evaporated milk stuffs, as things that one should have on hand during an emergency, like a power outage or a world war or something. But, for some reason, the other day while I was at the grocery store (shopping – another thing I hate to do) getting a veggie burger for dinner, a bunch of other things found their way into my cart.
So, I bought these cute little cookie cutters thinking, I am sure, that Bunny would find some non-baking way to use them. Silly me. Of course, the moment that she saw them, she immediately worked out their use -despite not ever having seen anything else like it in our house -and asked to make cookies. So, we did. And we baked and baked and baked. And came up with these little wonders.
Those are almond chocolate chip biscotti, spring sugar cookies, and chewy ginger cookies. Bunny is beyond thrilled.
As well, I got something very cool in the mail yesterday and couldn’t not show you. Check out my new sock
bag bug!! How cute is that?
Pretty and functional at the same time. I love that it’s deep enough to hold a two stranded sock project and the two balls of yarn that goes along with it. Even TG had to laugh at how cute (and ridiculous according to him) it is. I lurve it and that’s good enough for me.
Finally, I finished the Bunny socks that have been on the needles for so long. I will be honest and say that I really hated knitting these and only found the motivation inside of me to finish because I wanted to cast on for a new pair of socks and needed the needles. Honesty should count for something. Right?
Pattern: My own “Not So Vanilla” vanilla socks
Needles: US 1 (2.25mm) needles
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino – Monet colorway
I am still working on the Loopy Monkey sweater, but no pics today. I am feeling way too sluggish from all the cookies I have eaten. I just remembered why I don’t bake…
