I've been looking for a knitting project that would get me excited about knitting again, but I haven't really seen anything new and different out there. Any suggestions on a fun and interesting knitting project?
In the mean time, I knit a Tribble for fun. It's such and easy project that it took me almost no time at all and I'm already using it in the kitchen. Perhaps not very exciting, but that's the state of my recent crafting endeavors.
I've been baking too -- making Maddie's favorite which is banana bread based on this recipe. Of course, I make it gluten free, subbing 210 gr of my GF flour blend for the flour. I also like to use brown sugar for half the sugar, add a bit extra vanilla extract, and top it (in this case) or mix in some toasted pecan pieces and semi-sweet chocolate. So delicious!!
I've also been working in the yard -- pulling weeds, planting potatoes, and other things. Pete spent the better part of yesterday building a new raised bed for the raspberry plants that just arrived. So that's strawberries, herbs, onions, potatoes, lettuces, blueberries and raspberries, so far. The pepper & tomato plants should arrive soon and I really have to get the carrot seeds in the ground. I'm pretty excited about the garden this year.
