I am currently working on wedge 4 of the pie wedge shawl....coming along fine so far.
I have completed to possum socks and am half way through two more pair. I'm surprised the difference in knitting with a size 1 vs a size 2 knitting needle. Who would have thought that the one size would make such a vast difference in the speed with which I could knit. I'm actually enjoying the socks on the size 2, while the socks on the size 1 have been put in time out (as Cathy would say). I have to be in a better place for them to be my friends again.
Have started a new adventure in cooking...with.....yes, believe it....a pressure cooker. Now, when my brother said, "you have to get one of these, you'll love it"....I thought he was nuts. Why would I buy something that looked, cooked and scared me in a very archaic way. But I saw what his all electric unit could do and now I'm hooked. So I made the purchase and have been enjoying wonderful pasta, legume and meat recipes without much fuss. Now, I love the fuss of cooking....the slow, methodical process...love it....but sometimes, you just want easy...enter the pressure cooker. I'm in all the way on this one.
