Been doing some cooking this week. Finally found a vegan biscuit recipe that didn't turn out like hockey pucks!! These are delicious and actually taste like biscuits. I have totally missed biscuits. I gobbled 2 of them straight out of the oven with some strawberry jam. Oh so good.Decided to make a Tofurky this week also. Roasted it with onion, carrots and potatoes with some delicious mushroom gravy. Mmmmm. Made the leftovers into a tasty potpie. Who says you can't eat good stuff being a vegan?
Have made progress on the knitting which shall not be named. Yah! for me. So I got myself a treat to celebrate. I had a 40% off coupon at JoAnn's so bought the new knitting calendar. It has some great patterns and have already decided on a few that are in the queue.

Here's my quick finish project that I knit the other day. Took about an hour to make the hat but longer to bead it.

I really like it. It's a headband/hat from the new book "Hattitudes". It has some great patterns and alot are really fast knits. I especially like this one because I have a ponytail and I can just wear this right over it.

The yarn is Patons Classic in the Autumn colorway and it's a nice yarn.
Mom liked it so much that she had me knit one up for her also. But without the beads.
We are having Indian summer these past few days. Today it was in the upper 60*s and just sunny and lovely. Although I am ready to wear my knitted things it sure is nice to have the warm weather. Especially for the heat not having to run.
