Looking back on this first week of 2013, I think it’s fair to say that, for me, quality sets the tone for this year.
One of my New Year’s resolutions was to learn how to read a knit pattern chart. And to make socks.
It’s a cotton-silk-bamboo blend so the yarn feels heavenly. I expect the socks will carry that on.
Learning to bake gluten-free cookies was next up… but I read the recipe incorrectly: 1 3/4 cups flour, not 1 1/4 cups! Everyone liked them anyway. I can’t help but think that those fabulous organic ingredients shine through even with such a misstep.
Feeling a bit off with my cooking, I decided to cut my losses and try a new gluten-free restaurant. One Dish Cuisine. It was awesome!
We stopped for some antiquing on the way and found this… I wish i’d bought it! I can picture my onions and potatoes and root veggies happily spending time here.
During a quiet evening at home, I decided to work on my socks. I saw a mistake and ended up making more mistakes until it was ripped out to almost the beginning. argh. [Head hanging] I remind myself that it’s better to redo something properly.
This morning, my wee one wanted to put names around his train track . These letters are fabulous: birch boards with fine grade sandpaper.
It was lovely.
