On a different note, I dig the kitchen again. Being pregnant is bad for my kitchen affection but now I'm there all the time. Tonight for dinner we were supposed to have leftovers but I gave them all to Del for his lunches so my menu was thrown off a bit. What did I do you ask? I made sausage and cheese frittatas. They were so yummy; just a bit crunchy on the outside and moist and tender on the inside. I would like to have had better cheese but I guess white American will have to do. It was still quite delicious. Aren't they pretty? I also made another loaf of Challah. The neighbors kitty-corner to us are Jewish and eat kosher and they gave gifts to the girls so I need to give them a thank you note. I want to have a perfect loaf of challah to give them with the thank you note so I'm practicing. I like this loaf better than the first. It's a bit heavy but seems more like the challah we used to eat at Baruch ha Shem. I hope you're not annoyed by hearing about baking and cooking instead of crafting.

Is Baking Crafting?
I'm frustrated with knitting. My hands are so clumsy. I keep dropping stitches and having to start over and making a purl instead of a knit. When I do either of those things I have a hard time figuring out how to fix my mistake. With crochet you just pull it out and start where ever you want to. It doesn't seem like you can do that with knitting. The stitch confuses me; I can't tell how it's made and where the yarn is going. That silly little scarf I was making for Ella's rabbit is taking forever. I'm about halfway through it or a little less. There is a mistake down toward the beginning but there is no way I'm going to frog all that and start over for some silly stuffed rabbit's clothing. My problem now is that I started to knit instead of purl and when I tried to go back I dropped the stitch and now I don't know how to put it back on the needle. If I can't figure out how to put it back on the needle then that means I'm going to have to frog the whole thing and start over AGAIN. I'm frustrated with knitting.
