No Baking Today

Not when we have all these goodies to get through...

The pile on the left is mine and seeing it is our last Easter here, I thought I should try some pink Peeps (marsmellow chicks), and of course Brad couldn't go without his Cadbury Creme Eggs!

I did do some baking last week however (week 13) and made some double chocolate biscotti. They turned out really well but since my electric mixer died, I've been mixing everything by hand (and getting a very sore arm while I'm doing it). They turned out a little crumbly and I think the hand mixing had something to do with it - oh well, they still tasted good!

In knitting news, last weekend I went on a knitting adventure to Good Fibrations with Pamela and Shaila. We had a great time exploring the store and took advantage of their buy 3 get the 4th ball free deal! I don't think they know what hit them - there was yarn flying everywhere! Here is what I ended up with:

I can foresee much sock knitting in my future!

I'm almost done with Jo's birthday present and I love it! I did have a break from it though to knit another wash cloth birthday present. I've put this wash cloth together with some soaps for my nana's birthday which is next Friday. I hope she likes it!

Pattern: Ball Band Wash Cloth from "Mason Dixon Knitting"
Yarn: Peaches and Cream
Needles: US Size 7
Started: March 30th, 2007
Finished April 3rd, 2007
On a final note, I was going to write about how great the weather has been here during the last week, but considering it snowed yesterday, I changed my mind!

HAPPY EASTER!

    What socks do you have in mind for the new yarn? Looks like nice colors.

    It snowed here yesterday too! Something tell me I shouldn't bring super-wool sweaters to ABQ next week.
