I know, I know. I've been really remiss about writing here. No reason except I've been totally unmotivated to write. Or spend much time on the computer.
On the upside, I've been getting a lot of knitting done. These are 2 cowls that I made for mom. The pattern is called "The Key to Warmth" and she love it. The grey one is made with varigated yarn that she really liked.
It's an easy, fairly fast knit and quite enjoyable. Which is good because I've now made it 4 times. One of which was for sis for Christmas.
The yellow is "Gimli" from Claire Ellen Designs for the Solid Sock Knitters group on Ravelry. The theme this month is yellow.
I just finished the first one and getting ready to knit the second. Also have been working on my cabled vest. The pattern is from the Plymouth Company and is knit side to side. I made the first one in a nice autumn color and this one will be in grey.
I've also signed up for the mystery kal on Craftsy for February. I've never joined a mystery kal that I've not known what the yarn will be but it just came in the mail the other day and it's beautiful! I only know that the pattern is going to be a shawl and if the yarn is any indication, it will be lovely.
Here's what I've been cooking lately. This is the deep dish pizza from "Fresh from the Vegan Slow Cooker". I used mushrooms, onion, vegan bacon, and Daiya "mozzarella" vegan cheese. You can't tell from the photo but it's about 2'' thick and just delicious! And so easy. Just make the dough and let it rise and then put it in the slow cooker with the toppings to cook for about an hour and a half. I'll probably have some more for dinner.
This is the cool thing that I won from Go Max Go Foods! It's their line of vegan candy bars! I loved candy and haven't had any candy bars for years. I started with the Thumbs Up bar, which is like a Butterfinger. Oh my!!! Best candy bar EVER. I'm trying to make them last because Whole Foods only carries the Twilight and the Jokerz. But I've been thinking about them all day. The people at the company seem really nice. If you're on Facebook, go and find them.
Alright. Short post today 'cause I have some things to do. I PROMISE that I'll be back soon.
