I forgot to mention the other reason I haven't been around much. It's busy season and I've been working 10 hours plus worked this saturday. So between working, trying to spend time with Caleb and studying for the CPA exam, there isn't much time to blog. Somehow, I am getting the hang of this time management thing though and have accomplishing quite a bit.
Here is the little cutie modeling the craziest pink scarf ever knitted. Joanna and Kainoa will probably remember this silly thing that I knit awhile back. What was I thinking? Anyway, in an effort to use up my stash, I thought this might make a decent scarf. It is cotton, so it's not the warmest material. But I have so much of it, I thought it might work.
I dare say it's turning out to be quite a success. It feels really nice, squishy and comfy. Also, a scarf doesn't need to be washed much so this will work out nicely since I read somewhere that this yarn doesn't hold up well to wear and tear. Here's a close up of the texture.
I tried this recipe for brussels sprouts. The only other way I've cooked them is with lots of butter and bacon. Not too healthy. This is much healthier and although the butter and bacon recipe tastes a little better, it isn't enough to justify ever making it again. But brussels sprouts are not the most popular veggie, so I usually end up eating it all. Shane "forgot" to eat some with dinner tonight. I guilted him into trying one but I'm not holding my breath until he eats another. I think they're pretty good though. It might be worth a try if you haven't already.
