It’s Tuesday morning and I’m just coming down from my busy bee-ness over the weekend.  I got a lot of things accomplished and have maybe an unhealthy fixation on crossing things off my to-do list, but it works for me.

I finished Mr. Iknead’s socks, he loves them and I love that he loves them. 


Along with the abovementioned socks, dear S-I-L, Clefton, had requested a tea cozy a few weeks ago.  Being raised pretty much in the U.K., he likes his tea and this is what I came up with –


If it looks familiar, it’s because I used my leftover sock yarn from Mr. Iknead’s socks and liked the farrow rib so much, I used it again.  So, at the risk of repeating myself (which my dear children tell me I’m doing more and more often), I used Patons Kroy Sock Yarn, in Cadet Colors.  Turned out well, don’t you think?

Baked three loaves of bread and tried my hand at Salted Caramel Brownies, a nifty little sweet that seems to be the flavor of the day right now.  I made them Saturday afternoon and they’re already history.   The thing about that is that it’s only Mr. Iknead and me at home now, and that’s a short time for two people and a pan of brownies.  Self control? Not so much.

Fear less, hope more; eat less, chew more; whine less, breathe more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours.  Swedish proverb
