Tuesday? How did that happen? I haven't even told you about my weekend.
I made Pistachio, Lime and Courgette Cupcakes. Yes, really! My son is obsessing about the zingy lime syrup set against the crunchy nuts and moist green cake. My daughter? Not so much enthusiasm. Too... green. FL just ate them, one after another, with ice cream.
I sewed a blouse. But the buttons are in the post, so you will have to wait for the FO. My new trick - I used the serrated edge of my daughter's ruler to "print" lines of tailor's chalk - fantastic!
And I knitted on (and on) with FL's birthday socks. This pattern (Nexus from The Knitter Issue 14) is not for beginners. If you adjust the length (as is casually suggested) you will land in deep deep poo when you reach the part where the three "Wave" patterns are supposed to merge at the ankle. I followed the pattern as written, and still found myself having to design it myself at this point. The main problem is the absence of a chart or even a clear photograph. I had no idea that I was knitting a "Yarnissima-meets-Cookie-A" design until it was too late. The words "an interesting challenge" should have given it away, but the photos certainly didn't!
And I washed my winter skirts, ready to go away for the summer....but had to rescue them from the washing line when a hailstorm struck. Hmmm... I may have been a bit premature with the seasonal wardrobe switchover.
