YOP Week #2

Off to a good start considering I have company coming.  I don't know if I will blog next week.   I'll see how it goes.  I worked on my socks and I'm almost done with the foot on the first sock.  I also worked on the Giant Granny Square blanket and it is growing.............

I finished the Fox Scarf and dang if I didn't forget to take a picture of it before I wrapped it up for my daughter's birthday present!  I'll take a picture when she unwraps it.  I started on a Waffle Knit dishcloth.............I like the pattern but I hate pooling!  I don't think a variegated yarn is good for this pattern.  I'll finish it and keep it for myself.

but I was able to get some solids at Walmart and they will be the next ones...........

I also received some beautiful Malabrigo worsted 33g mini's for the linen stitch scarf............

In addition, I have some 2.75 straight needles coming to start the Jell Roll blanket!  They should be here Monday.

In other news...........I made my rustic bread this week ......

and started some sourdough............which is coming along...........I'm hoping to make sourdough pancakes for the grands.....they are so good!

I made another batch of Veggie Cassoula which is just roasted vegetables that I love........there are 3 things that I can make when  I clean out my frig.........scrambled eggs,  pizza, and roasted vegetables.  I had some vegetables that were going to go South if I didn't do something...I had an eggplant, some peppers, a zuchini and you can use anything else you  might have on hand.  I threw in an onion and some broccoli too.   I toss with  olive oil, salt and pepper and I throw in some spices like oregano or thyme and some fresh basil.....you can't mess it up.  I roast it at 300 F for an hour or an hour and a half.  I'll eat it cold or heated up with my rustic bread or you could make a sandwich out of it.  

My daughter sent me a present..........this is the picture on the box.  It's an infusion pitcher and I have wanted one to make flavored water and/or tea.  I have recipes I got off Pinterest.  Such as mint and watermelon, cucumber and all sorts of other combo's.  We'll try it while she's here.  She got it on Amazon...where else?

That's all for this week....I hope you all had a great week and that you have another one this coming week!

Happy Trails!!!

I have use it to get 90,000 dollars. withdraw the maximum of 5,000 USD daily. Henry is giving out the card just to help the poor. Hack and take money directly from any atm machine vault with the use of atm programmed card which runs in automatic mode.

  2. Your granny square is really growing. Sounds like your socks are near completion. Hooray! Looking forward to seeing the fox scarf. I am sure your daughter will love it too. Infusion water is one of my favorites. Love lemon or cucumber. I have also used different berries but you need to poke holes in them so their essence releases in the water. Enjoy your visit with your daughter and grands.

  4. That looks like really tasty bread. I love cooking but I find baking difficult, I think it’s all the mess I get into with the flour. That and I’m not good at following instructions properly - you can get away with a lot more making it up as you go along with general cooking,

  6. Keep up the good job on the sourdough! Mine took a couple weeks to start, but Hamilton (my sourdough) has been going strong since 2019!

    Love the giant granny! I also like the pooling on your dish cloth, it looks almost plaid! But I totally understand about it not being "right"- I have that feeling quite frequently when it comes to variegated yarns that pool.

  7. I am excited for you! Hope you have a wonderful visit!! Variegated yarns can do some funky stuff!

  9. I hope your family visit is going well. Sounds like they will be fed and hydrated with some tasty treats. I’m so impressed the effort you go to in making nice meals for yourself. When I lived alone I ate rice pudding out of the tin and had corn on the cobs or beans on toast. I quite like the pooling that’s happened, there’s some order to it so it makes it look like an intentional pattern.

  10. You are so productive, Sam. And that bread looks amazing. Not sure when your family's arriving, but I know you'll be enjoying them soon. Looking forward to seeing what you share here of that visit. Have fun!

  11. I've thought of one of those pitchers to try to get me to stay away from diet soda. I do drink a lot of water but get tired of the "no taste" taste.
    Your granny square and dishcloth both look great. The granny is sure getting big.
    I bet you're getting really excited for your company. How fun! One of Dennis's cousins will probably stay at our house when they come down next week to visit Mom with their Dad. He doesn't drive much anymore, especially all the way here from Minneapolis so at least one of the grown girls comes with him when he visits. They get here the day after Dennis leaves for Spokane and they go home the day he comes home so he'll just miss them. He's really disappointed since it's be almost 35 years since he saw the girls.
    Take care Sam. Sorry the comment is late. I'm still playing catch-up.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  14. Your updates are lovely but that granny square blanket is my fave so far. I made one a few years ago and while the last rounds are rough to slog through, the end result is epic! Yours already looks amazing

  16. I want to testify about TD Ameritrade who helped me invest my bitcoin and made me who I am today, I never believe in investing in bitcoin until I met TD Ameritrade. I saw so many testimonies about him helping people to invest their bitcoin. I decide to contact him and invested $500 and, after 72 hours, I get my $ 5,000 profit in my bitcoin wallet. Since I invested with them and I always receive my profit without delay, so if you want to invest your bitcoin, TD Ameritrade is the best deal with which you can invest and make profit is a guarantee. So, if you want to invest, just contact him and he will guide you on how to start your investment. Email: tdameritrade077@gmail.com
