Journal Improvements...

Posted on 10/31/10:  So, I have just gone through my entire journal. (Yes, I know, I need a life.) I have appropriately tagged every past entry, so that they are easier to find based on what one is looking for.

I have decided to make sure I have some structure. Each Sunday (or Monday if I can't post on a Sunday for some reason), I am going to make a list of all of my current WIPs, the tag for which will be "week's WIPs". I will continue to post throughout the week, especially to update my FOs, but this way, I can keep track here, as well as on Ravelry (where I am "knittergoddss" as well).

I hope this makes things a little easier for my followers, not that I have many (feel free to leave a comment here if you do follow me, so that I know someone out there loves me).

This post will be edited as journal improvements have been made.

For my sister's wedding, I made a cookbook. I printed each of these out, and then scrapbooked them, but wanted to share them here:

 I couldn't sleep tonight, so I stocked my fridge.

First, I made a cheesecake, using Mom's old recipe.
Then, I made a Spinach and Cheese Tortellini Casserole.
Then, I made Fusion Hummus.
Then, I made an extra pound of pasta to go with the leftover Alfredo Sauce that I had made the other day.
Then, I made a pot of coffee, so that I could stay up and wait until the cheesecake was done in the oven, so I didn't overcook it...

Pictures will be up as soon as I can find my damn card reader :)

A day in my life...LOL

 .First and foremost, the following swaps went out in the last week, and I've been forgetting to post their pictures.

Washcloth's knitting pattern is from Kris Knit's Spring Cloths

Washcloth's knitting pattern is Elaine Fitzpatrick's Baby Starfish

Washcloth's knitting pattern is the Circle Cloth

Then, for dinner tonight, I made Fusion Hummus...I made half the recipe, but used twice the garlic...it came out AWESOME!

Here are the two cloths I made for swaps.

Wow! Yes, extremely picture heavy. I apologize.

The last thing I posted was in December, 2010?  Wow, I'm slipping up on so many levels!

The past four months in knitting...Collapse )
