Today I am all bouncey and excited, but I am not telling you why. My camera is being charged as I type. Come back tomorrow.
In other news, I have decided to join the Jaywalkers Sock knitalong. The pattern did say it was easy enough for a beginner so I think that will be the plan, as soon as I finish that first pair of socks I already started. I have a bad habit of starting projects and then getting about an inch in and moving on to something else. I am trying to improve this behavior by using the rule, "if I start it, I have to finish it."
I have also been struggling with the hat I am working on right now. Yes, the Noro Silk Garden one. I am using a pattern of pretty much my own design. I took some basic formatting and gauge ideas from hats I have done previously but this one is my own cobbled together cable pattern. Well, my own in that I own the book I took the cable patterns from. Regardless, It's not going as smoothly as I would like. The differing gauge of the silk garden is starting to piss me off a bit. Usually when I am in the middle of a cable. I am trying to use the Cabling without a cable needle method, and sometimes I can, and sometimes I sigh and use the damn needle.
Hopefully tomorrow I will have enough on it done to give a progess report picture without people wondering why I am posting the same picture from the other day.
Congrats to Cari at Dogs Steal Yarn (see sidebar for link) as she just announced on her blog today she is expecting.
Does anyone have a good recipe for Hot & Sour soup they could mail me? I love the stuff. Even though I have to pick out all the mushrooms because I hate them. I am hoping that by making it myself I can just leave them out.
And what about Indian recipes? Anyone? Nan bread and some of that minty sauce.. YUM! Shmoo took me to a lovely Indian place for my birthday in White Oak. Bombay I think it was called. The service was good, the food was great, and their prices didn't make my have a stroke right there in front of everyone. (I am cheap!) Lamb Vindaloo for the win people. I need recipes to try and make this stuff at home!!!
