Daughter's socks are finished. They are still waiting in my house for the new owner since we were in covid quarantine until Friday. No one was allowed into our home. She will receive them soon. I will probably take them to her next week. She is getting ready for some minor surgery and I think they would be so nice to have to wear while recovering.
All that is left is for me to knit are his front legs, sew them on and then sew on the wings. The wings are pinned on right now as I did not want to sew them on until I had the placement of everything the way I want it. I have enjoyed working on this item. I will say, amigurumi is still not high on my list of things to make. Once Tarragon is done, I will start on Fred the Frog.
These are Sourdough Cranberry Pecan buns. The recipe is from the Emilie Raffa "Artisan Sourdough Made Simple" cookbook. They are so yummy. There is not a strong sourdough taste to them. The best part is, there is no sugar in them. The recipe calls for molasses as the sweetener. Not to mention the cranberries help with that too. Hubby agreed, I can make these again.
I chose this Dryden pen. It is a medium point as was my other one, but, this one actually writes between medium and fine point. I really like it. There has not been any leaking from it (which my other one was wont to do). It came in a lovely cloth case that can hold the pen and 2 cartridges.
My original fountain pen. It is a Cross pen and normally, Cross is the only pen I use. This was a very inexpensive pen to start with. So, I was not surprised when it would leak on my hand. I was also not surprised when it bled through paper and sometimes had a blob of ink when writing. The one thing I love about it is..............it is super quite when writing with it. No matter what grade of paper I use. The Dryden pen has a bit of a scratching sound to it while writing.
They finally got electricity back at midnight Thursday night/Friday morning. They also were on a boil water order until Saturday. What a mess that was. I felt so bad for them. Yet, here I am, almost 1000 miles away. Nothing I could do to help them. Now they are going through their fridge and freezer to find out how much food was lost during the outage. At least their insurance will reimburse them for food loss.
