I'll spare you the pictures of the sandwiches they refused to eat and the yogurt and blueberries that were spread all over the floor. At least I was a little productive while they were causing trouble. Ah, toddler and preschooler mom life.
I made Banana Bread from thekitchn.com. The only changes I made were to add a little cinnamon and vanilla. It took 1hr10m in the oven before it was ready, which was quite a bit longer than the recipe called for.
It looks like it'll be good, but it's still cooling on the counter. Am I the only one who doesn't like warm baked goods? Cold? Yes. Warm? No.
The dishes are done, counters are clean, kids are napping. I'm exhausted. I have a bit of a spring sinus bug that's really dragging me down. I think I've been as productive as I'm going to be today.
On a woolier note, I've been having so much fun working on this pair of watermelon stripe socks from Biscotte & Cie Bis-Sock! My brother and his girlfriend gave me this skein for my birthday, and it was such a great surprise!
These socks are toe up, two at a time on two different Hiya Hiya circular needles (2mm), and I'm magic looping. I split the skein in half by weight so I could work on then in tandem.
I'm planning to get both feet finished before inserting a fish lips kiss heel. I'm really thinking of doing 2x2 ribbing up the leg, but I haven't decided yet. I still have a few inches and some heels to go before I really have to make a decision. This yarn has such fun patterning and is soooooo incredibly soft. I've been eyeing their Blue Pansies colourway as a possible stash acquisition in the future since it has a similar patterning.
I'm getting ready to cast on for another pair of handspun socks, but I'll share more details on that when I actually get around to it.
