A Month and More

Wow. It's been over a month since I posted last. Lots has happened. Most of it good.

We got a new fridge. She gives us water and ice through her door and doesn't complain. She allows us to open her freezer door without barfing ice cubes all over the kitchen floor. She keeps things in her compartments at the temperature she promises. She's shiny. I love her.
I turned 37 on the 16th of this month.
Dan made captain of the track team.
Darcie got a 102 average in math.
Dailaesse is having a blast homeschooling.

I bought the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day book. If you don't have this book you should buy it right now. Amazing. And it honestly only takes a few minutes to make a loaf. Just look at my first loaf:
I've also done lots of knitting. I was on a serious dishcloth kick for a few days.

I also finished a pair of Blueberry Waffle socks. These were knit in STR Heavyweight Rocktober. So soft and squishy. I gifted them to my Aunt Noreen. She loves them as much as I did. I finished the Noro Kureyon socks I had started for my dad. My mom told me today she's washed them several times now and he still can't wear them. They make his feet itch something terrible. I'm so bummed. I didn't really enjoy knitting with the yarn but they are really nice looking socks. Maybe a couple more washings? Anyone have any thoughts?

There's lots more too but I've already shared enough photos for today. Back tomorrow with some more.

Yep, it looks like you were seriously into dishcloths ;->

it's nice to see you posting again - I was getting worried. So now I'll look forward to a post tomorrow and maybe to that note you said you were sending me about a month ago???

The bread looks YUMMY! I am going to have to get that book to make bread. I love the socks... I really need to get back to knitting, I miss my knitting friends
