I know I’ve already posted a picture of the Amigurumi duck, but I finished the one I’m sending as a baby gift and it was too cute to not post again.
I also love the Target brand Tums bottle in the background of this picture. Behold:
Friday night potpie dinner!
It was enjoyed all weekend, as opposed to last time when it was enjoyed in one sitting. That was painful.
Speaking of pain, though, the Dykhuizen household is now the proud owner of a pasta maker. And it worked very hard Saturday afternoon.
Manicotti, spinach and mushroom ravioli, squash ravioli, and linguine. Whew. It hurts to remember.
Egg rolls, of course! Or spring rolls? I don’t know. But they were delicious. And now I have to stop talking about food because my tummy is still recovering.
After the Grandma’s Hat break I got back to working on the sweater jacket. I finished the second sleeve and am working on the neck now. It is hard to pick up stitches with the Homespun yarn because you pick up the big stitches and then knit front and back and front in the stitch with the smaller needles and yarn. It is looking even so far so I’m going to go with it. After this I’m just knitting the button bands! This sweater has knit up so quickly! I love it.
Time to review Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close for book club tonight! And eat some pasta.
