…Because I took Ad to the airport again today. He’s going to the Italian Alps for fieldwork. THE ITALIAN ALPS. Some people have it rough. So I’ve done what I usually do on the days I take Ad to the airport: eat copious amounts of ice cream, crochet, bake, and watch TV. That’s actually most days, but whatever.
Here’s what I’ve been churning out….
Some super cute hats for some super cute kiddos.
Can you tell I’m ready for fall? I just love this sweet little pumpkin beanie.
And this one is for me! Using some delicious wool yarn that my grandma gave me.
It’s of my own design, with a really simple construction of 8 granny squares joined to create a tube, and then cinched at the top with a pom pom to finish it off. I’d be wearing it right now if it weren’t disgustingly hot and humid.
This afghan is still in construction. I have several more circles to make, and then each one will get edged in white, turning it into a granny square.
I’m hoping to keep this too, when it’s finally finished. It’s been a work in progress for months now. I have a hard time doing just one project at a time because I get too bored, so I tend to pick things up and put them down as the spirit moves me.
And because an entire pint of ice cream wasn’t enough, I made some banana bread. As usual, I didn’t have exactly the right ingredients. I was missing two eggs. I turned to the internet for a solution and found that you can use 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed mixed with 3 tablespoons of water as a substitute for 1 egg. For reasons I can’t recall, I have a large amount of ground flax seed, so I tried this out. I also threw in some shaved up bits of baking chocolate that I had left over from something else.
Delicious. I swear I gain 5 lbs every time Ad goes away.
