Sharfik Update

While Electra has been my knit at home project, I always like to have a portable project going simulateneously. That's been Dad's Sharfik. Perfect for the T, perfect size for my purse. Sharfik's been my traveling companion for quite some time now. It's good, too, because it's a really nice knit and it's been lasting. I think I'll eventually break down and just finish it in a few nights (I want my dad to get some use from it while it's still cold). Here's some photos of it's current state:


I only dry blocked part of it (mostly because all my pins are in use wet blocking Electra). But, you get the picture of how the cables will look. Here's an upclose shot...



Yesterday, as I like all Saturdays to be, was a day of baking. Since Pants (the husband) has a bit of a chocolate problem (it really is a problem not something I can make cute by calling him a "choco-holic" or saying he has a sweet tooth), he'll take anything chocolate over something not regardless of the food group. I thought I liked chocolate, but it's become trite for me now. In any case, here are the goods. And, yeah, despite my ramblings I ate some and they were yummy.

Is he a mean chrunk? (I just invented that word for chocolate drunk) Ha ha. Oh well, there's worse things to be addicted to.

Sharfik looks soft and cozy, I bet your dad will love it.
