ON MY NEEDLES

Oh gosh!  Where to start…

Sara Tunic

Hempathy Yarn

Berry Syrup

My Sara Tunic looks like a mess, but the front is finished and off the needles, with about 10 more rows to do before finishing the back.  After finishing the back, I’ll sew the shoulders and complete a little gusset thingy on each side before finally joining the sides.  Sort of like it says on a car mirror – objects in mirror are closer than they appear. 🙂

Next – Zigzagular socks.  one down, 7/8ths of second sock to go.

I still haven’t found the ball band for this mystery Madeleine Tosh yarn, but I’m still looking.  Don’t you love the little snaky cable?

This next project may be my downfall –

Hopefully, this pattern will be transformed into something resembling View D.  Allowing for the fact that I’m really a terrible seamstress but still somewhat of a legend in my own mind, I plan on figuring it all out as I go.  Stay tuned.

CHOCOLATE CAKE:  IT’S WHAT’S FOR DINNER

I’m a big fan of justapinch.com and this is my newest favorite cake recipe– Chocolate Coconut Bundt Cake.  Super easy and super good.  I fixed it for the family cookout last weekend and except for the coconutphobes in the family, it got raves.  C’mon…..how can you NOT like coconut?
