Feb 1 - coconut cream pie

I made a delicious coconut cream pie a couple weekends ago – it was a big hit! I used a can of coconut milk in place of the whole milk in the filling. It kind of turned a bit grey when I was cooking it, but whatever. It was soooo good.

February 5 - plying

Finished plying up a pound of merino/seacell blend that I’d been working on for AGES! It’s a 2-ply and maybe about 1800 yards. I have no idea what I’m going to do with it, but it is quite soft and pretty. Maybe I’ll have it dyed.

February 11 - take two

Working on a new sample of an older pattern that I completely wrote up but never released. This one is in Zen Yarn Garden superwash worsted, in Moon Purple. I haven’t had a purple sweater in ages so it’s going to be great!

February 10 - digging out

Digging out this weekend. We didn’t get as much as in the US, but still the biggest snowstorm in a few winters – we got 30cm (12″). It was a good excuse to hunker down with slow cooker stew, Boardwalk Empire, and a new jigsaw puzzle.

February 4

My next sweater pattern release! I can’t wait to share it with you.
