One down...

Well, almost. The Farmer's Market bag is blocking. I love blocking felted bags. The creativity required to find the right sized box combination is really entertaining. I think I may have made too many pockets, but that's okay. I'll probably sew them all in tonight.
I cast on for Orangina. Mine is more of a cherry soda, actually, maybe one of those health food versions without the artificial coloring.

And for Somewhat Cowl. I love Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool. It's just wonderful to work with.


Reading: Bloodsucking Fiends.

Writing: Still on page 55, 16,521 words. I've had the Novel on my mind a lot lately. I think I have the voice down that I want, which is exciting. There are actually a few different voices, but this is the main one, the first person in the present day.

Cooking: Hmmm. I made enchiladas over the weekend, but not really by a recipe. I mixed together a big can of Roman Beans (random beans I accidentally bought instead of pinto beans ages ago) with some Kraft 2% Mexican cheese and a lot of chopped cilantro I happened to have and used that as filling. Rolled it up in corn tortillas and topped with enchilada sauce, cheese, and black olives. Impromptu, recipe-free cooking.

That Orangina lace is so pretty -- I like the idea of it being health-food orange drink.

I love your market bag. That doesn't look very uncomplicated to me ;)! My clogs rule- look for a post later today.

You have such lovely projects on the needles. And your bag is so cute, can't wait to see it done.

You've been busy! Can't wait to see the bag once you've finished.

I love that kind of cooking. I may do some today. I think I've been baking and cooking more than I've been knitting. I've started a log cabin afghan from Mason-Dixon Knitting. I'm using left-over superwash DK weight sock yarn. Very nice to knit at night - I can just zone out.

Damn.

Nice market bag!
