My crafting mojo is really strong right now! Maybe it’s because it’s been so hot out, I’ve been staying home surrounded by all my delicious crafty supplies. I finished knitting a deadline sweater (still needs ends, blocking and oh yeah, the pattern) and was immediately gripped with the urge to start something new, despite all the other stuff I have going.

I pulled out a bunch of yarn and found my sock yarn scrap stash – there’s a lot of it! I just wanted to make something easy, quick, and scrappy, so I ended up starting a half granny square triangle shawl.

It’s so fun! I want to make all my sock yarn scraps into shawls! Grey is Anzula Squishy, pink is madelinetosh pashmina and multi is Indigodragonfly MCN Sock.

I’ve been cooking up a storm, too. This week: homemade bagels (from this recipe, with brown sugar instead of white and no malt powder) and blueberry pie (with cornstarch instead of flour for thickening). YUM on both counts, and I should probably work out or something.

Bagels!

And I picked the first tomatoes of the year! They’re so cute.

    It looks like you’ve been working up a storm. I find that between one yarn shop doing a summer promotion and my desire to mostly stay inside that I am getting a ton of crafting done this summer. Almost makes up for the things that aren’t getting done!
