Back from the netherworld…

…of becoming an adult.

I’ve been silent for a bit, I know. You see, we bought a house, moved into said house, are still planning a wedding that is now only a little over two months away, and in the meantime I’ve been working 6 day weeks. Yay!

At least we got this out of it:

No FOs at the moment, since I’ve had precious few minutes to knit (must get on the flowers and shawl…)

However, I did want to share a few quick knitty things before I dive into a post I’m planning on my day job (libraries, specifially children’s services).

1) Stitch Maps! Lots of chatter on the interwebs about this new knitting pattern format and, while I do think it is very cool, I must support the crocheters who are quick to point out that they have been using a format akin to Stitch Maps for forever.

I rest my case.

2) WWKiP in Toronto happened! Lots of events at High Park and at local stores.

My Instagram pictures from High Park:

More pictures here, here, here, and here. This one’s my personal favourite:

Sistering

3) Other things I’ve been up to. Baking very nerdy things.

  1. I bought Sam “A Feast of Ice and Fire” a little while back and we have yet to make anything from it… mostly because he’s been obsessing over honeyed locusts. You can’t find locusts in Toronto, apparently. But yes, we definitely have to try this pie. You can never go wrong with a bacon weave.

    • lol! He won’t substitute grasshoppers? The preface notes say the taste is similar.
      And no, you can’t go wrong with a bacon weave. Never. I’m a little sad the pie is gone :(
      Side note: the medieval pastry dough is really good, but it’s especially good with two egg yolks instead of the one
