There’s nothing I love more than when I have two FOs. This week it’s a pair of socks and a book. My new stripeys are January’s entry for the KAL I’m participating in.

I also cast on my mom’s belated birthday socks. With the Blizzard of 2016, I’ve had plenty of time to knit, so I’m hopeful I’ll have another FO to post next weekend.
Besides knitting, it’s been a DIY-kind-of week. We tried a new cookie recipe from a new-to-me-blog. Not only are they simple to make, but they are delicious. We will definitely keep this recipe in our cookie-making rotation.

I also experimented with personalizing some ceramic coffee cups and cork journals. Stay tuned for future pics.
I destashed five skeins of yarn this week, but also added another stripey. I love the juxtaposition of these colors: terracotta, dark grey, and soft teal.

I was tempted to add a few more STCW creations to the stash – I’m looking at you Lagoon Nebula and Atmosphere.
