Complete Accountability

As I said the other day, I have been working on Cassidy. I haven’t worked on it a whole lot because I hate to pick up something that requires focus and then have to keep putting it down because of interruptions. I have a bit less than an inch of the hood done. I am not 100% thrilled with the picked up row and I think I am off by one row crossing the cables. I can live with those things. I have long hair which will drape over the hood and to be honest I doubt I will ever put the hood on. Maybe one for photos but that is likely it. I plan to work on this tonight since the menfolk have a cub scout meeting but who knows what my mental state will be by tonight. I make no promises.

Last night I spent my knitting time working on the sock. I know I said it was going to be my out of the house knitting and it mostly has been. In the afternoon yesterday N had Kumon and that is a good hour of uninterrupted knitting time so I worked on the sock. I was nearly done with the gusset decreases when it was time to leave. After the conference with the teacher, which was very good, and dinner, which I’ll talk about in a moment, I didn’t have much left is the line of brain power so I picked up the sock and completed the gusset decreases.

Yesterday Beth and I had a short discussion on corned beef and cabbage leftovers. I told her what we have always done with the leftovers: bubble and squeak. I quickly looked up the wiki on it because I knew they could explain it better than I could. Mine is a bit different than what is described in the article. Into the frying pan I place some butter and a 1/4 cup or so of finely chopped onion. I cook the onion until it is translucent and then I add all the leftover vegetables which I chop up into small pieces. I let it heat through stirring quite often so it doesn’t stick in the pan. I don’t let it brown, I just want it hot all the way through. Once it is quite hot I put the sliced corned beef leftovers on top and cover the pan with a lid until the corned beef is heated through. I serve the bubble and squeak with additional butter. It’s quite delicious and different every time I make it because the combination of leftovers is always different.

    Loving those socks! And I bet that you’ll figure out and get the momentum for that sweater/hoodie and when you do it will be so pretty!

    Yum, bubble and squeak! That’s always our Boxing Day tradition for Christmas leftovers, although it is fab all year round.

    I love your socks! The colours are pooling so perfectly. Vanilla socks are always perfect for a bit of brain light knitting 🙂

    I agree with Lisa, you will get the sweater done when you get it done. Just enjoy the process. The sock is looking wonderful as well, are they for you?

  6. I have to put my socks on a written To-Do List rather than one in my head! And the food looks yummy!
