Remember what I said about the cookies not being a big hit with the boys? Scratch that. Sam LOVED them. Thank goodness I put some in the freezer or they would all be gone. Lunch was Roasted Beet and Potato Borscht (recipe courtesy of Everyday Food).
Long have I believed that I didn’t like beets. Um, revising that opinion. This month, I’ve been trying to eat more colorful veggies, so I gave beets another try. Yum. And perhaps my post yesterday was slightly misleading. I haven’t gone completely vegan. For example, I stirred some sour cream into my soup and inhaled it like a Hoover.
I was all set this weekend to knit like the wind on a seamless, top-down raglan I started. But instead, I worked yesterday on a giant granny blanket that’s been languishing as a WIP. (The header photo is a close-up of it.) Unfortunately, I’ve also been reading knit blogs and browsing Ravelry and I want to start about 900 new things. I especially am feeling the desire to knit a stripey shawl, something like this one or this one, both of which were featured on Knitted Bliss.
This house is a total disaster area, due to the Awesome Destructive Power of Small Boys. I want to sit and knit, but John’s got a piano recital and my parents are coming over afterwards and, sadly, the house doesn’t clean itself. I think I’ll put this album on and get to work!
