Late night shenanigan #1: I did in fact finish knitting my Autumn Reis last night. And y’all, IT FITS. Like, perfectly. I’d been a little concerned that it might not, because I altered the yoke in a somewhat intuitive way. I had a hunch it was going well, but I couldn’t be totally sure until I was done. I was repaired to rip it back if need be, but I was so thrilled to discover that that won’t be necessary. I still have to weave in the ends, graft the underarms, and block it. I can’t wait to show it to you!
Late night shenanigan #2: I looked out the window just now and there is snow on the ground. While others have been complaining about the sudden cold, I’ve apparently been in a state of denial. I simply refused to believe that winter weather was already here. Alas, with tonight’s snow, which is actually sticking, I can no longer deny the truth.
Late night shenanigan #3: I was cleaning up the kitchen tonight and noticed three bananas were past their prime. That was all the nudge I needed to do a little quick baking.
(Not a great photo, but trust me, it’s delicious). I love this paleo Banana Bread recipe from Against All Grain. I subbed maple syrup for the honey (I was out of honey) and added pecans and dark chocolate chips.
It’s cooling now – so excuse me while I go have a bit and get back to my knitting.
