Soleil is off the needles! I think I'm in shock! I cast on for this way back in June last year, after the first one I knit turned out way too big for me (in fact it's still hanging in my closet waiting to be frogged!). I knit the smallest size this time and I think it's gonna be much better. I tried it on before blocking and everything looks good.
I'm just a little nervous about doing the crochet around the arms and neck? I'll try to do that tomorrow and all being well will try to get some 'flattering' shots of me wearing it next week!
On a non-knitting topic, I had to try THIS recipe that I saw last week. Here's how mine turned out. . .
it's sitting on top of vanilla yogurt, probably the only way I'll eat it - because I like it best this way, (although I am tempted to try some in a bowl with milk on it). The recipe was super easy and tastes really nice. I love all the healthy stuff in it like oats, wheat germ, whole wheat flour. And what I really like about it is that it's not overly sweet. Just the perfect crunch to it and a rather yummy snack!
and before I go I had to mention my new blog background! Thought I'd try a change from the usual white!
