After all the spinning, I finally got back to knitting. The first project on the list was a shop sample. I turned a regular monkey hat into a Sock Monkey Hat. I think it came out pretty good. My Sock Monkey gave it his seal of approval--5 bananas!
I've been tackling large-scale cleaning. Yesterday I worked on the basement of DOOM, and today I started on Jim's office. I'm being careful to keep papers together. I'd love to repaint, but that will have to wait for another time.
Last week I saw a post on Needled about Fat Rascals. I'd seen them before and thought they were so funny. I found a recipe online and made some with what I had on hand. Craisins instead of currants, raw sugar instead of caster sugar, and larger almonds. Oh my, they are so good! This recipe is a keeper--Ben and Jim will like them, too.
