time

Friday, February 08, 2008

Where does the time go? I just can't believe another week has flown by.  I am still without a car, (fly wheel, transmission) and you would think with all of this idle time I would be cranking out projects.  But, no.  For some reason, I am a little less productive.  I just don't get it.  
I did manage to finish, block and sew the buttons on my tangled yoke.  Hopefully this weekend I will get some action shots.
Of course, there has been baking.  A lot of it actually.  These are actually chewy chunky blondies.  However they are missing the butterscotch chips, the nuts, and the coconut. I didn't have those ingredients on hand and without the car.....you get it. They were delicious, however, I think they would be unbelievable with all of the ingredients.  

Happy Weekend!

    Those blondies are making me hungry...

    Hope you get your car back soon; what a pain.

  6. it's funny, but when I have limited time, I manage to get everything done - with too much time, nothing gets done! maybe it's us thinking we have all the time in the world, so why rush?

  8. The tangled yoke is a darling sweater. Well worth all the slogging to get it done you did a marvelous job.

    Those blondies are making my mouth water. I have yet to try a recipe for them but they always look so good.

    You know I find it hard to post when I haven't got any knitting to report, makes me feel too guilty. I have been doing some home staging. It is making it feel alot cozier.

  21. The tangled yoke is gorgeous. I've been crazy a sweater like that for the longest time.

    Yummy brownies. The ones we made last night aren't quite to beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  22. sorry that should have been "craving" not "crazy". My fingers obviously have a mind of their own.

  23. The sweater looks great, Les. Surely you can manage an action shot or two with that nifty camera and tripod of yours.

    How long has your car been sick? What a pain in the neck! Hope you get it back real soon.

  25. I love finding out what you are baking! I sent my mom to your site a few weeks ago and this week, a care package containing orange/ginger cookies (sound familiar?), arrived at my door. Wow--those were good. I ate 4 as soon as I opened the box. Thanks for the great recipes!

  32. Your Tangled Yoke is simply gorgeous! Wow! I think the more idle time I have, the less productive I am too for some reason. Like I feel I have all the time in the world...:) Even when sommon sense tells me otherwise!

  34. That sweater is awesome and the yarn is perfection. I bet you'll be wearing it this weekend. I wish I could come over to see you and eat a brownie. Happy weekend, Leslie.

  35. The tangled yoke is beautiful. The buttons add to the sweater without taking away from the amazing yoke. I am a fairly novice knitter just tackling my first pair of socks. I am not holding my breath, though, as they may take quite some time to finish.

  36. Leslie, you totally kill me--to anyone else finishing the TYC would be a 'shout it from the mountain tops' moment!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. The stationary shot of TY is beautiful, so I am sure the action shot is going to be awe-inspiring. And brownies, or blondies rather....I love blondies (more than brownies, actually)especially when there is all sorts of good stuff mixed in...hungry now.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Mmmm, blondies are a fave of mine (probably the browned sugar/butter taste...mmmm).

    Your tangled yoke looks so wonderful. It makes me want to knit my own... Wish I had the yarn in my stash!!

    I know what you mean about feeling like you should be cranking out the projects. For myself, I find that if I don't have a routine to follow (along with those deadlines) I don't seem to be as productive! It really is odd in a way...

    Have a wonderful weekend, Leslie!

  40. I'm glad your blondies turned out well. My creations without the main ingredients usually turn out sideways.
