Every once in a while I think I'm the lamest blogger in the universe for posting so infrequently. Then I remember that I'm a grad student and give myself a big pass on the guilt :) I have a billion knitting FOs to post about, but first here's some catching up on general stuff:
iPhone? Still love it. Spinning wheel? Still love it.
Has there been anything going on besides that (and school, but we won't talk about that)? I suppose, but not much!
I've been on twitter for a while, but with the new iPhone, I'm actually using it. You can see my updates over there on the left.
I also started using GoodReads, which I signed up for... oh, a billion years ago. The little badge over on the left will take you to my info if you're on GoodReads. And if you're not? Check it out! You can write reviews of books and find books from others with similar taste to you.
I'm still trudging my way through the never ending bag that is steadily eroding my love of knitting. I really wish it didn't look better with contrasting duplicate stitch, but it does. I finished duplicate stitch on the first side of the bag and now I'm moving on to the second side. I'm going to set aside some sewing time this weekend to make the lining and also to whip up an apron for a swap I'm doing in the ravelry Sew Obsessed group. The worst part of the giant bag? All that duplicate stitch is messing up my totally even and gorgeous stranded colorwork interior. Of course, the interior is going to be covered up by the fabric lining, so this officially just makes me a little bit crazy and a whole lot o' lame.
Sadly, with all the craziness going on with school, I've decided that I need to drop out of the Daring Bakers. In the kitchen, I'm mostly focusing on healthy eating right now. It's taking forever to sort out how to use more whole grain flours and strange new (to me) grains like quinoa, which leaves too little time to work on advanced baking skills. I think Tim & I are probably spending more time in the kitchen than ever before, just figuring out how to do things differently. And we're still having a lot of fun, which is half the reason for cooking to me! Hopefully we'll get things all figured out soon enough, and I'll certainly post what works for us when we do.
