Current Projects

On Friday afternoon I came home from class in need of a snack so I whipped up these peanut butter nutella cookies. I used a peanut butter cookie recipe, cut down on the sugar and substituted nutella for part of the peanut butter. They were tasty (perfect with a glass of milk)and the texture was good, but I wasn't completely satisfied with the result. Neither of the flavors came through that well.

This is my latest knitting project: a vintage bathing suit pattern I found online called "water sprite." It's totally adorable and makes me think of Katherine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story. The trick is that the yarn and needle sizing on vintage patterns is different. I went with 100% cotton yarn in a worsted weight and size 5 needles. It turned out to be a much bigger gauge, so I'm doing some major adapting to the pattern. Hopefully it will turn out okay. I found mixed opinions online about whether you can actually swim in a knitted bathing suit, but I'll probably line it and give it a try.

    Good luck with the Bathing suit... I can't help but think it won't work well in water...
