Birthday hat

Jessica’s Birthday Hat

Pattern:  Lady from The Boogie Knits

Yarn: Patons – SWS  Soy Wool Stripes – color natural blue

Needles – Size 9 dpns


Last night I finished the hat for Jessica that goes with the fingerless gloves.  Still needs to be blocked.  I’m just happy that I don’t have to work with this yarn anymore.

On today’s agenda is stocking up on oxygen tanks for tomorrow’s thanksgiving trip, pick up a few items at the grocery store and then back home for a baking marathon.

Note: Kerry the cookie baker, says that the recipe on the back of Toll House Choc. Chips is what she uses.  But, she substitutes butter flavored Crisco sticks for the butter.  The butter is what makes the cookies come out flat.  Her other hint is for moister, chewier cookies substitute molasses for half of the brown sugar. Since I will be executed tomorrow for giving away her baking secrets, this may be my last post.

Are you sitting?

I baked cookies!  I don’t remember the last time I felt like baking.  I made Dark Choc. Mixed Berry Walnut Cookies.  The cookies taste really good, but they came out kind of flat.  The mixed berry part is from a bag of dried cranberries, blueberries, cherries and strawberries that I got from Sam’s.  I contacted daughter Kerry (cookie baker extraordinaire) about why cookies came out flat.  Hopefully next batch will be better.  Plan to bake again tomorrow since I will be making pumpkin pies anyway.

Knit on J’s hat last night.  Have one more cable repeat to do and then can start decreasing.  Hopefully can finish tonight.  The yarn came apart 2 more times last night.  I’m going to be contacting Patons about it, may not help with their quality control, but at least I can vent bring it to their attention.
