Peppermint Sweater

For Christmas I got The Little Guy red and white striped and green and white striped pajamas from Hanna Anderrson. The only problem is they're made of cotton. It's a heavy cotton but not heavy enough. He needs a sweater!

This is another Placket Neck Sweater from LMKG. I was hoping for a less girly (i.e. less pink) coloring. But then I was also hoping for longer stripes. This is what I get when I come up with this idea a week before Christmas.

I'm almost to the arm pits. I should be able to start the first sleeve tonight.

What's this?

I got an idea in my head this evening that I can't shake. It's hard to tell but the yarn in the sink is red and white. Next up, knitting a gauge swatch and buying more yarn and kool aid tomorrow.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tomorrow's play group is a cookie exchange so this evening I made banana chocolate chip cookies. I took a chance and substituted apple sauce and butter for the vegetable shortening.

They don't look too pretty but they taste good.

I don't know enough about baking to know exactly how to get the cookies to come out as I want them. Next time I'll try substituting the vegetable shortening with apple sauce and vegetable oil.

Yarnma Question

Yarn + Karma = Yarnma

So... When I ordered the yarn for the Norbertas and Sheldons I received the order twice but was only charged once. I called Knitpicks and they told me I had to ship it back to them. I told them no, they had to pay for shipping. The customer service rep told me they'd send a shipping label. That was almost a month ago.

The question is, do I call them again on Monday?
