I built the Eiffel Tower today. No, really.
I finished some projects that had been WIPs for about a year, how embarrassing. I finished a shawl, a pair of socks, a pair of gloves, and a hat.
My first pattern, Blades of Grass, is now available for purchase on Ravelry! It’s an easy-to-knit pair of fingerless mitts that knits up quick in worsted weight yarn. I’m also having a giveaway, hooray!
I made a wild yeast sourdough starter, and learned quite a bit about how to start one, properly maintain one, and troubleshoot it when it’s not doing what you expect. This post is about starting your starter, and how to tell when it’s ready to use.
I made white bread! It’s not the best loaf I’ve ever seen, but I think it’s a really solid first try.
For my birthday, I made a tres leches cake using Alton Brown’s recipe. I added a little spice and made a fruit compote topping. I was very pleased with my birthday cake!
Summer is a quiet time crafts-wise for me, and leads to quiet blog, as well. But I did get some baking done!
This piña colada cupcake fills me with joy every time I see it. Bakingdom, the blog that it’s from, is a great cupcake resource, and everything Darla makes is adorable.
