First and foremost, not much knitting! I'm in the throes of finalizing and teching past projects and swatching and mathing future ones, so most of my evenings have looked a little like this:
(I will apparently use any scrap paper to make myself pattern notes in the midst of knitting, even a Cirque du Soleil ticket.)
Suffice it to say, I'll be happy to be getting back to my normal evenings of knitting.
There has also been a lot of time spent in the kitchen. I am rarely happier than when I'm puttering around in there, especially when it involves baking. The past few weeks efforts have included cheese gougeres from Amy's recipe:
These were delicious, and didn't last two days. I pretend they were healthy and protein-rich because of the number of eggs and amount of cheese in them, but I'm really stretching it there.
Today's baking was this cake; I had pinned it on Pinterest a few weeks ago and have been looking for an excuse to make it ever since. A get together tonight was the perfect excuse! Despite a few hitches (apparently browned butter can turn into black and smoking butter in less than an eyeblink, and I always think I own confectioner's sugar when I don't), this cake is off the charts amazing. I will be making it often!
Now that I've got the cake-making itch out of the way, I've got a tiny bit more math to do, and then it's smooth sailing on a new sweater design. What are you working on these days?
