I finished my Knitted Chocolate Easter Bunny. Well, this is the second on I have made in the last two days or so; the first one didn't come out correctly at all. Apparently there has been a correction to the pattern I had printed off months ago and for some D.A. reason I didn't think to go look for corrections when part of it wasn't making sense to me. I just slogged on, thinking I was the one being confused about lots of decreases with only five stitches to work with. Yeah, well, anyway, I ended up with a very mutated blob of brown knitted mess. So, of course after I was done sewing it up, I go look up the pattern on-line and find the correction. So of course I started another one. Fortunately, this one ended up looking pretty much like it was supposed to. I think I might even make another one or two before next Easter, though I think I will use smaller yarn to get a smaller bunny.
You may remember awhile back I mentioned I had jumped on the five minute bandwagon? Well, as I had suspected DTE is wanting a pizza/bread stone and peel to take back to school with her. This stuff makes great bread and wonderful pizza in about thirty minutes. We have been eating pizza with fresh mozzarella, basil from the deck, tomatoes (not quite from our garden yet), garlic pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil several times a week for the last several weeks. It has been a fast, easy, delicious dinner for summer nights. I will add that this is such a great band wagon to be on that I fell down and bought the book. I will also add that I checked it out from the library twice before I did so. I settled for twice since there kept being a waiting list and I didn't want to have to wait again. This is also why a sweater box has taken up residence in our fridge, it is the perfect thing for storing the bread dough in.
