I recently made a baby cardigan sweater for my cousin who just had her first baby. We visited them last week and he was as cute as a button. I'm sure the blue hat and sweater will look extra cute on him as he has beautiful blue eyes! The pattern was free from my local yarn store. I used 100 Purewool yarn from my stash. It is my very favorite every day wool. It's soft as butter and a pleasure to knit with.
We were in for some wintery weather today, so after doing school with the kiddoes I decided to make homemade sausage. I have never done so before. I used half ground turkey and half ground pork along with spices. I joined Homemakersmentor and it was one of our lessons to make sausage and/or salami from scratch. So far I have been really happy with this program and group. If you love homemaking and would like to continue your skills give it a visit and click around and see if it's for you. We are having sausage, sour dough bisquits and broccoli for dinner. Should be ready in a few minutes!
Ohhh... and guess what the UPS man brought me today? A BOSCH Mixer from Marmeedear! I bought a grain mill from Martha a couple of years ago and really wanted a BOSCH Mixer so I can make six loaves of bread at a time, among other things! A big investment, yes, but one I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of.
