Oh hey there. I’m so happy to sit down and knit tonight! After a week full of skiing and twelve hours of traveling yesterday, things are finally starting to quiet down over here.
What I’m Knitting
I haven’t started anything new this week. After I finished my beanie, my sister-in-law said she wanted one as well. So I did cast on for that, and I’ve gotten to the finger part of Kevin’s gloves. I would have finished those up while we were away, but something about traveling with stitches that were hanging on to scrap yarn just didn’t sit well with me.
I was tempted to walk down to our yarn shop earlier today, but Kevin told me the yarn I was setting out to buy was going to be my birthday present from him. So the yarn hiatus continues (boo!).
Things of Interest
My dad infamously gave my mom a wooden trash can for either their first anniversary or first married Valentine’s Day. Mom never lets him live it down, but I for one wouldn’t mind seeing this trash can magically appear on Wednesday.
I made Gunner some whole wheat, peanut butter and pumpkin dog treats today. I can’t find the recipe online, but it’s in Sally’s Baking Addiction Cookie Addiction book!
Our Instant Pot finally returned to us! We’re making one-pot chicken alfredo Monday night, and I’m looking forward to cooking my morning eggs in it this week. Maybe Kevin won’t fuss about my smelly eggs anymore. 😉
Coming Up Next
I just started reading Jojo Moyes’ Still Me. I absolutely loved Me Before You and have been anxiously awaiting this new release. I was so excited to see it in the line-up for February’s Book of the Month box. It was waiting for us when we got home from Canada, and I cracked it open before bed last night.
