Just a quick meta-photo of my friend taking a photo. I love this picture. the clouds, the color of the prairie, the water in the foreground… I took this photo last weekend on the highway north out of Milwaukee. It was overcast and just really beautiful the whole time I was there. I didn’t have time to explore or hike much at all, but I did see Lake Michigan. It was huge! I had heard stories about the Great Lakes, but it was really something to see it in person.
I’ve been pretty busy lately. I’ve had a couple crafty disasters. A loaf of bread that I made where the inside just never set. The recipe called for maple syrup, and I used honey instead… could that be what went wrong? Such a waste of ingredients. I hate when that happens.
I also finished that Christmas stocking I posted a little while ago. Then when I blocked it, the red dye spread and spread onto the white parts. I ripped out the whole foot and redid it, and I’m trying to wash the dye out of the lace cuff. So far, no luck. If I can’t wash it out, I will try to bleach it out. If that doesn’t work, I will rip it out and redo it. It’s kind of been a huge hassle, but since I may be away from home on Christmas Day for the first time ever this year, I really want to have a few nice things to celebrate with.
I finished my hybrid silk camisole. It is blocking, and I will hopefully photograph it tomorrow or Sunday. Then mail it off to the recipient on Monday. I picked up the pair of socks I’ve been working on for ages, and am almost to the toe on the second sock. Which would leave me only one UFO… Rogue. I pulled it out from the depths of my closet today and took a look at where I’m at in the process. I can do this! I really want to be down to NO UFOs by the end of my reading week. I’ll be working a lot and doing homework, so we’ll see how it goes.
