Casting on a new project… and f/u on the funeral cake

I won’t keep you waiting about the cake. I’ll be honest, I didn’t care for it to much yesterday. It had a funky taste which was probably due to the fact that I made it with gluten- free flour. But, I just had a nibble about 10 min ago and it was pretty tasty. So much better than when it was fresh baked. I’ll probably wrap it up and freeze it in pieces so I don’t feel like I need to eat an entire cake in a few days. It could be done, but I really don’t want to do that.

Now, about the new project. I’ve realized I have a plethora of really lovely yarn and I’d like to start using it up. So, when Meg @postmodern.meg on Instagram shared her pic of this beautiful sweater it looked like the perfect project for me.

The pic from the creator’s website

I’ll be using some sport weight baby alpaca from Knit Picks to make mine. It looks similar to a children’s sweater that I made for my son so I think I can handle the “advanced beginner ” techniques. Honestly, once I get past the short rows I think it will be a breeze.

Why a new project? Well, I seem to have more energy lately and have been staying up later at night. If like to have a simple project I can work on while watching TV with the hubs.

Anyone else getting back into knitting? What other hobbies are you working on?

Hi there, this is Brandi. I'm a pharmacist who works a very funny schedule, all week long but only every other week. As a result I'm off half the year plus vacation time. What do I do in all that time off? Good question... maybe if I start documenting it I'll know too:) Just kidding! I spend a lot of time on domestics: fixing up my house, cooking, sewing, knitting and of course bonding with my darling dog Darcy. I actually have the time and money to travel a bit, finally, so I will try to do that often on my week off. To my friends, this may be the quickest way to see what's going on in my life while I'm away.
