I am always trying to find better ways to do things. I think lots of people live their life this way, trying new ways of doing things in an attempt to make life easier or more entertaining. One small example is when commuting I tend to try different routes until I find one that is pleasing. My current favorite route, it isn’t the shortest but is the most entertaining, passes a house with lawn furniture on the front lawn. There is a couple of picnic tables, an umbrella table and an assortment of chairs. My favorite item though is the life size Snookie cut-out standing under the umbrella. She’s there whenever I pass by but if I pass late enough in the afternoon there will be a couple of men sitting with Snookie having an after work cocktail. I have considered knitting this Snookie a scarf and leaving it midday when I assume no one is home.
Anyway, yesterday I spent the better part of the day grocery shopping and cooking in the hope that I can squeeze a few extra hours of knitting time out of today and tomorrow. That is why there is little progress on the sweater. The sweater is Topeka and I am knitting it with Cascade 220 superwash sport in Westpoint Blue Heather. See the flipping hem? It’s driving me flipping crazy.
I baked some more bread yesterday. This is basic white bread from the book that came with my KitchenAid mixer. This particular recipe is quite yummy and we devoured most of a loaf with dinner.
