beads and woe
Woe, I had to frog what I’d done on the top down cardi because I’d screwed up the maths on the conversion from Aran weight to DK and not even the magic of top down raglan could save me. After sulking for a few days, I frogged it and rewound the skein.
I plan to recast on with the new maths once I get my Denise Interchangeables to co-operate and let me clip an extra length onto the needles I want to use, so it’s definitely not the last we’ll be seeing of that cardi, dangit.
What I did do while sulking was take advantage of my always growing collection of beads and make some earrings for my flatmates’ birthdays (conveniently both in the same week). I’m very pleased with both sets.
I also endeared myself to many people at work by making these Green Tea and Almond Biscuits and bringing them in for the library and the education department. I was rather pleased with the way they came out and look forward to trying my hand at a few more green tea powder related recipes. Mmm!
