Thunder On

There is nothing like a good thunder storm to clear the air. By bedtime, with the pouring rain washing the humidity away I was able to turn the fans off. Baking bread wasn't the major ordeal I was dreading. When I took the loaves out of the oven the whole house smelled divine, the yeasty aroma seeping into every room.


Apparently there are more of those Moderne Log Cabin blankets than I realized. A Caffeinated Yarn is making one. Iron Needles finished one back in March that is lively with colour. Mine is progressing well. At the moments it is 62cm x 74cm (24.5" x 29"). I am loving its stash busting properties.
Between this blanket, all the socks I've been knitting, and the baby items I still plan to knit, I should not only meet but exceed my goal of busting the stash by 100 skeins (there's a group on Ravelry). Unfortunately I lost count when I went away in February and haven't bothered to keep track since I returned. My finished projects will help me with some of the numbers.

Mmmmmm, home made bread... My house is WAY too hot, I can only bake bread in the fall/winter.

The blanket is looking good!

There's nothing better than the smell of fresh baked bread to make a house feel like a home.
