A Knit Along and What's Going On

All sorts of things have been going on around here lately:) Busy, busy, busy!  I've finally got a package ready for the mail that I've been procrastinating on for so long.  Everything I thought about putting in it didn't seem good enough...you know how it goes.....Well finally....it's done and this little baby will be out in the mail in the morning and one more monkey will be off my back.  I really like the way the glaze broke on this one....I tried to repeat this outcome quite a few times......but never could repeat it:(  It's actually not that little.....it was about 2 pounds of clay....which given my abilities is quite a lot to throw.   I really should practice more:(

Also, I've been working on a little knit along project.  It's for a knitted dish cloth and several lines of knitting are posted on Rachel's Knitting Corner blog each day.......so I won't know what it is until it's all done:)  It's a perfectly sized project for my attention span.  I  have purchased a pattern from this lady before and it was cute as a button. (even though I screwed up one line....oops) Well only two days have come out so far so it's not too late to knit along yourself.......if your up to it......check it out here.  The project started on April 19th....so look for that date for the cast on instructions.  Hope you try it....it's quick and fun, and her patterns are usually quite cute!  I'm excited to see what it is:)
Coming up in the kitchen.....the next batch of Ginger Beer (the first one is officially gone), a trial with lacto fermented Ginger Beer, pao de queijo, and experiments with Kefir.......So stay tuned.....and if you haven't yet entered the giveaway for two super beautiful Calphalon Pans courtesy of CSN stores.......there is still time:)

I love the pottery and the knit-along where you don't know what your making sounds really fun!!
