Sweaters, Sweet Potatoes and one VERY Creative Daughter…

I was a very lucky girl, and got to knit the day away yesterday. I was able to finish the body of my Iced Cardigan.

 My plan was to wake up early, and knit at least one sleeve today. No dice. Life got in the way. Ok, a binder full of coupons, and grocery shopping at Shaws, followed by bringing Aidan to the Drs. But my plan for tonight is to pick up and knit a good part of a sleeve. My goal is still to get this sweater done so I can wear it on Saturday or Sunday.

Speaking of sweet potatoes… someone DID say sweet potatoes, right? No? Just me? FINE! I love sweet potatoes. Tonight’s dinner is in the oven. Featuring none other than….. (drumroll please….) sweet potatoes! It was so simple – I diced up some sweet potatoes, an onion, and drizzled on olive oil and added thyme. Then I placed seasoned chicken thighs and drumsticks on top, and drizzled maple syrup on top. In about an hour I will have sweet yummies on my plate.

While I was making dinner, my daughter tells me that she is going to MAKE her best friends birthday present. I said “go for it!”… a minute later she comes running upstairs with this fabulous flannel fabric, and my scissors and starts cutting…


She is definitely her mother’s daughter. This is going to be a purse. These are the add-on’s for the inside – a couple of pockets, and pencil holder thingy. She just started cutting things and placing them here and there. I will post more pics tomorrow while she sews it together. I am so happy that she creates without second guessing, or giving herself limitations.  The possibilities for her creative future are so wide open!

I am off to pick up stitches and knit sleeves. This yarn has been waiting patiently for me for 6 years, and I can’t wait to wear it.

Did I mention I have SWEET POTATOES cooking in the oven???
