Well my friend Ashley came over and as I hoped I got some good finished objects pictures and we made some yummy desserts. We also watched The Perks of Being a Wallflower (I would highly recommend the book and the movie. I enjoyed both) and talked about what was going on in our lives so a good time was had by all.
So here are the pictures that I have been saying I would post for about a month now.
Well I have decided that I love the cowl the colors are perfect. They are just a nice pop of color in the dreary winter months. And again, it was wonderful to knit up. Such an easy and fun project.
Here is my deja vu cowl. I love it!
Now here is my beautiful blue sweater. This is the one that gave me such a hard time with size. It ended up that the second time around modifications work perfectly.
I absolutely love the color of this sweater and though it caused me a lot of grief and I hated having to rip it out and start over the knit picks city tweed dk yarn is just lovely, so it made ripping it out and starting over easier.
Mainly what I did was follow the Emily Raglan Henley pattern the raglan equaled 9 in from the back of the neck, then I cast on 10 stitches under each underarm, placed a stitch marker in the middle of the 10 stitches and then the five that it called for in the front and then joined it in the round. After that I decreased on either side of the stitch maker under the center of each arm every 5 rows until it measured 16.25 in. Then I increased every 5 rows 3 times. Then I worked even until the in measured 23.5 in from the top to bottom and did a 2 in 1×1 rib. Then I followed the rest of the pattern except of the arm ribbing I only did a 2 in 1×1 rib.
It was a super fun and easy knit and I really happy with the color of the hat. It was by far my favorite dye job.
Now that I got all of that out of the way now on to the yummy stuff. The first thing we made was this Berry Cobbler thing. It was super easy, only required 3 ingredients and the prep time was only 5 min. I liked it, it wasn’t my favorite thing that I have ever made, but I’m not a big cobbler person. Everyone else in my house liked it so it was a success.

The second thing we made was Golden Grahams S’mores. They were so yummy, I took them to work and gave it to the office staff at the school, a coworker, and a friend of mine and they absolutely loved it. One person said it was like crack, overall it got a great reaction. It too is easy to make and has minimal ingredients, the other great thing about it is all you need to do is let it chill in the fridge for like 15 min. so it can get set and then you can devour it.
The Golden Graham S’mores. We made these Thursday morning and this is all that’s left Friday night.
