Things I made this week

My week starts on a Saturday. It is usually a day of cleaning and tidying up while entertaining the 5year old and taking her to swimming lessons. Well last Saturday she didn’t have swimming lessons so she got out her Perler beads and started making stuff.

I found a penguin pattern and decided to make it. Man those things take a lot of time and the slightest nudge to the table knocks those beads off. And with a 5 year old sitting next to you, the table does get nudged a lot. But in the end I got a pretty penguin, well she decided it was hers.

On Sunday it was my birthday, so I made cupcakes (really good recipe). As usual I ended up with way way way more than a 3 person family should eat so I gave half of them to my husband to take to work. The other half was eaten by the 5 year old. Seriously, that kid loves chocolate cupcakes and would probably eat the for life if she could get away with it. I only ate one mini one and that was it.

On Tuesday she got the day off so we spent it at home again and I tried to finish the never ending blanket. I also realized that the yarn I had would not be enough, yaaay new yarn for me.

On Thursday I decided my husband really needed a new scarf and I had the perfect yarn for it, so I just cast on. I knit him one when I first started knitting, and I am pleased albeit slightly surprised that he wore it and actually loved it. So he definitely deserves a scarf. I knit him a pair of socks once, he never wore them so I unraveled them and made them smaller, I think I might just knit him another pair and insist (nag like a crazy knitter wife) he wear them šŸ™‚

Finally, I have been really wanting one of those sock knitting project boxy bags or dopp kits. I sewed two before but they never turned out how I wanted, this time I used interfacing and this tutorial. I love it. I am not sure if it is because my sewing skills have improved or I just got lucky but I am really happy with the results.

So that is it folks. I guess it has been a productive week overall.

    I love reading your blog, it feels like you are in the same room talking.
    I l love your sock bag thingy you made, where did you get the pattern? I have a pattern for a sort of clutch/make up bag I wss thinking of making into a project tag along bsg, but your bag is a much better shape.
