Molasses oat bread is good bread. Hearty, chewy, lots of flavor. Goes great with muscadine jam. Yum.
Nothing of note to report, really. It was a nice long weekend for me. I took friday off and I had today off and it was a nice rest for my addled brain.
My brain has just been obsessed with the crocheting. It’s all I think about. I’m constantly on the lookout for new patterns and designs, and I can tell you without a doubt that there are a lot of crappy designs and patterns out there.
I have about 8 million different projects I want to do. i want to make scarves based on lace and edging designs, I want to make lace edging for pillow cases, i want to learn filet crochet and make gifts for people, I want to join forces with someone who can make purses and crochet flowers to be attached to the purses…and on and on and on.
I ended up not going to the crochet class as I came down with a rather uncomfortable bladder infection that day, but the next wave starts up soon enough.
I also found the pattern for my next scarf and I just hope i have enough yarn on hand for it. Anyone wanna be my yarn patron? I’m particularly fond of the Noro brand Lily cotton/silk blend in solid colors (not a fan of variegated yarn for intricate work). It’s what i am using on the scarf project right now and that stuff is a dream. Completely smooth, a nice sheen, braided instead of twisted. I’ve been searching eBay for deals on it, but it seems the best deals are either on ugly colors or variegated colors. Sigh.
On the other hand, cotton thread for lace is super cheap on eBay. I’m a little obsessed.
Dammit. I wish I had more interesting things to talk about, but it’s winter and I’m chill and I get all nesty in the winter. It’s the quiet life, and I am happy.
