Astor is drying! So pictures soon! I think we are going to be very best friends, yes indeed!
So what else have I been making? How about these sinfully delicious cupcakes. Found the recipe while looking for yet another chicken recipe. If you like chocolate and cream cheese, these are for you!
I started a sock a few weeks ago while at Ryan's games. I didn't have anything to do while waiting, so I walked over to the yarn shop, that was conveniently located a block away from the hockey rink and bought some needles and yarn. The colors definitely remind me of the the upcoming change in seasons. My hope is that I won't have to wear socks for too much longer!
And lastly, I want to share this great little ipod case that Rebecca made. She is the owner of the blog called Poshyarns. She ran a contest a month or so ago and I was the winner! I'm constantly losing my phone in my purse, so this will be just the thing to help me keep track of it. Thanks Rebecca for your sweetness and please go say hi to Rebecca. She creates the sweetest things for her family.
What are you all working on?

chocolate + cream cheese = heaven.

love your bright and cheery sock--just what you need to push through the last part of winter.

Renee said...

Rebecca makes such lovely things! And love the sock too. I have a sock on the needles now as well, but I seem to have lost the ability to pick up the stitches round the heel without leaving the dreaded corner holes--not sure what's going wrong. Big sigh.

Word verification was happlees--perhaps this is a reference to my hapless sock knitting!

Happy Knitting,

Cupcakes look fab!

Sock looks fab!

I'm excited to see photos of your Astor and am happy you love it!

I'm working on a Maine family travel web site among others right now and this work is seriously cutting in to my knitting time. Bah! Good think I love it.

Think pedicures! Think flipflops! Think spring!

I am loving that sunny sock yarn. I should be working on finishing a long overdue pair of socks for my sister.
