M&M's of the non-chocolate variety!
As you know, I LOVE my M&M's. Love 'em! So when I went over to Karen's blog and saw this dishcloth on her post WITH a link to the pattern, I knew I had to do it. Right away. I pulled down my stash of Sugar & Cream cotton and found this bright green and cast on! It knit up quickly and I already have another one on the needles. I really think I need a drawer full of these in all sorts of bright colors!
My second Cider Moon sock took a trip to the Frog Pond this weekend, which was quite a sad moment. (For you non-knitters, to Frog something means to Rip-it, Rip-it, Rip-it!) Somehow when I moved the sock from dpn's to the 2-circular needles I went down a needle size or two. Needless to say, as much as I tried to convince myself that it would be ok, I knew what I had to do. Now the yarn has to get back in queue for it's turn on the needles!
In the meantime, I cast on some All Things Heather that came home with me from St. Louis. I was drawn to this skein because it reminded me of the Minnesota Vikings, which is my team. I LOVE football, so I am pretty sure I need some purple/gold socks for the upcoming season.
I was also pretty excited to read about a KAL just for us knitters who also love football!! Check it out here.
My niece from Minnesota came to visit for a few days, and walked in wearing this shirt!
Yep. About sums it up!
We've been enjoying some yummy Strawberry Smoothies lately, and I thought I would share the recipe.
1/2 cup Country Time Lemonade mix
3/4 cup water
1 cup sliced strawberries
3 cups ice
Put all in blender and mix until nice and smooth. We use fresh strawberries, but you can use frozen strawberries. Decrease the amount of ice you use, unless you thaw the strawberries first. (We freeze strawberries now so we can enjoy these in the middle of winter. Always nice to have a taste of summer when it is below zero outside!!)
Tomorrow I help take Aaron back to school. Seems like I was just picking him up! Where does the summer go??
Next week I'll be taking Kirstin. Everybody is leaving me!!
Good thing Sumo has promised never to leave me!!
Good dog, Sumo. Good dog!
Until Next Time..
when I will share photos entitled 'Fun With Grapes'. You won't want to miss them!! (Right, Kirstin?)
