If wishes were stitches, or fruit in a jar, I’d have a finished hat and a pantry full of preserves. Alas, I have neither, but the hope remains that one day soon I will. The hat is a few rows away from being bound off; after that’s it’s just a matter of whipping up an i-cord or choosing a ribbon for the accent. This is a sweet beret from the lovely Vintage Knits for Modern Babies and has been going along smoothly, if a little slowly due to my lack of dedication to the project.
I picked up these books in the recent going out of business sale at Borders, and keep daydreaming about jubilant jams and decadant cupcakes. This weekend I’m going to try one of the cupcake recipes, likely the coconut lime or chocolate cherry creme, depending on my mood. And our freezer is full of hand-picked blueberries and raspberries, just waiting for the right time to be put up into a batch of jam.
How is your stitching and preserving coming along?
Yarn Along is inspired by Ginny at Small Things who says: Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. Glad to be playing along this week!
