It may be time to get a new basic cookbook.
My parents gave me this cookbook when I went away to college. So, more years ago than I care to recall correctly. Lately, my sons have been using it to make cookies. Which may explain its current state, although I’m sure some of those stains are from me. I at least kept the pages in order though!
Betty, thanks for all the help over the years.
Other things I’m calling time on include the Papa sweater that I’ve attempted three times.
All of those pictures are the same yarn. It fascinates me how it can look so many colors in different lights.
But in all of those pics, the yarn, no matter its color, is in the shape of an ill fitting mess. Just not the pattern for me or this yarn. So many increases in such a short space left weird puckers that looked even stranger on.
So attempt #3 is now back to its primordial yarn form.
I’m consoling myself with my at-last-blocked purple sweater.
Woodfords turned out to be a light, comfy everyday cardigan that I will wear a lot. The yarn, Silky Wool, stretched in length quite a bit in the blocking, and I still wish I’d used a size down in the needle for a denser fabric, but the sweater is still great, and all those many, many ends are finally sewn in, both from the pattern and the knots in a couple of the skeins.
Now back to shifting through Ravelry for the next project.
