I'm working on two KALs right now and actually only actively working on my Hat KAL- Get Ready To Choose Your Own Adventure. I got my Hat brim done! And I haven't opened up the link for the update today. I will when I'm done with this or this will not, probably get done. First things first and a little suspense in life is good for the soul. I like doing these KALs (when I can keep up!).
I've returned to my sock, a knitting KAL that keeping up was difficult with my trip back East and I find the knitting a bit harder on my hands with carpal tunnel. Tuesday's Eclectic Thoughts- A Sock Knitalong So I'm knitting on it in the evenings a little bit at a time when my husband and I watch our one show. These days we're watching "Elementary", a modern rendition of Sherlock Holmes, very engaging.
For my birthday present to myself last week while in The Adirondacks I gave myself some amazing soft yarn. I hope to start a Reyna Shawl at some point with the purple/blue Malabrigo Mechita Yarn in Whale's Road and the blue Malabrigo Sock Yarn in Caribeno is perhaps a future Thistle Dew Shawl. All are so soft.
At some point this week when the heat abates and I won't make living in a tiny apartment impossible I'm hoping to bake my husband's favorite pound cake- Spring Vanilla Pound Cake. He loves a morning sweet with his coffee. It's made with a cake mix, lots of eggs and canola oil. Very good, not exactly health food, but good for the taste buds.

Nicole says: "The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture or two and share it with the rest of us by leaving your link" on her blog, link above.
