FO!

Yeah! I finally finished something: Socks with Cascade Fixation for me. This was my demonstration pair for the class I taught. I'm glad to have them out of the way. I'm tired of the fixation for now, I'm taking a break. I at least want to give my three pairs some time to see how they hold up to wear.

No knitting today

This week's creativity has been in the kitchen. Kevin used the magnetic poetry to decorate the fridge.


Every month our arts council puts on an event featuring live music and dessert. The desserts get better every month. For January I made a strawberry pound cake from a recipe I got from my cousin at Christmas.



I swirled in a little red food coloring just for added counter appeal. It has real whipped cream topping and strawberries between each layer. It didn't cut well, lots of sliding around.



But boy it tasted good. I love it when strawberries start tasting good again.

Neat old Building

I just heard a story on the radio about an old building in Brooklyn. There is a great set of photos of the building and the art inside and the people who live there. Worth a look.

Finally!!!



Finally, winter has decided to join us. This picture was actually yesterday, but Blogger was down. Today it's bright and sunny and COLD. The forcast has some more warm on the way, then they are promising a month of real winter weather.
