I finished a second item in the beginning of June. Q needs replacement sweaters, because either they are shrinking or he is growing (I know which one it is) and the ones I made for him no longer fit his frame.
This one is the Offset Wraplan. I striped this with a random white yarn and all of the non-fingering yellow yarns I had in my stash. I mean it, there are at least two and more likely three different yellow yarns in there. A great stashbusting project.
Of course, the sweater doesn't fit him now. It is 12 month sized, and he has a few more months to go before I expect to be putting it on him on a regular basis.
One sweater down, and I still have the sweater I started at Squam left to go (also a 12 month sweater, but it is being knit on the 18 month plan). Not too bad for our little boy!
In June, I also made a couple of cakes. One of which didn't go quite so well. I tried to make the plum kuchen from Smitten Kitchen with cherries, but I didn't get the beautiful rise I got when I made it the first time. I will have to try again, because I love that cake.
I also made in June the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake that Smitten Kitchen has on her site from the Sky High cookbook. I loved making that cake so much that I borrowed the cookbook from the library and hope to try another recipe or two from there!
Of course, now it is July, and soon it will be National Ice Cream Day. I have a staycation where I will hopefully make a ton of ice cream, knit a bunch on a shawl for Camp Loopy, and read a book. A most vacation-y of stay at home vacations.
