Making

I bet you just want to run and get a tall glass of milk or a cup of coffee to dunk one of these beauties into it. They do look all nice and soft with just the right amount of chocolate to take care of that craving you've had all day.

But, really they look like this. A hard, gummy, chewy mess. Not sure what happened and I will probably be the one to eat them all, because, you know, they look different. This looked like a keeper of a recipe. In the magazine they looked divine. Just remember, that I was the one to tell you to just keep on going. Turn the page and be thankful that I saved you a few extra calories.
My day was good...really it was, except for the cookies above and not being able to get my camera to register the right green of the sweater that I'm making for Matt. It's green. Sorta, heathery, camo, forest green. It's boring to knit. But...he has asked repeatedly. It needs to be done in 29 days. Because that's when we go south and he wants to bring it with him. really? I don't question my fourteen year old anymore. His brain just isn't functioning correctly most days. So I knit on...and give you an artistic shot for your enjoyment.
Enjoy your making.

I've just started baking again after many years of buying. I'm realizing there are some bad recipies along the way. I used to think that it was such a waste - now I'm thinking it's practice. I like your knitting picture.
