I love Saltwater Taffy

I love my MondoCable and the real candy kind of taffy. The only difference is that my tank won't stick to my teeth (chortle chortle snort). I finally finished the front (even though the directions say to start with the back but then again, I never follow directions verbatum). I cast on and am almost finished with the last of the pink for the bottom of the back. Then its boring off white for a bazillion rows. Since I always like to adjust a pattern to my tastes, I may add a cable to the back. Or maybe a lace pattern. Something small but different.

As you can see from the picture, my kitchen was invaded by tweens last night. Half a dozen of my oldest son's classmates and their teacher came over and I hosted an Italian themed cooking school. We made bite sized chicken parmesan, doctored (with healthy veges) marinara and linguine, garlic italian bread, salad and tiramisu for dessert. Yummy! The kids cooked the entire meal which was attended by their parents. I'm so proud of them :)

Needless to say that between work (how dare work interfere with my knitting) and hosting the cooking school, I had very little time to knit. I was up until 12:30 finishing up the front of Saltwater. I checked out the various 2004 Knit-A-Longs and decided that I may just venture off on my own for my next knitting adventure (in addition to the other UFOs on my needles). I love almost all of the new Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora patterns and still may get Viking Knits. So many choices, so little time.

I'm miffed with Blogger and Tag-Board. Blogger changed the code so that damned bar is protruding from the top of my blog and tag-board is down again. I don't have time for this technical crap. I just want to knit and post about it. Why can't blogging be simple?

Well, I'm back to work then need to pack for the beach. DH just informed me that we're headed there for the weekend Thursday night. The downside - I don't have much time to gather everything together quickly and I'll still have to work on Friday while the ocean taunts me. The upside - I get to visit EweKnit Kits and lavish myself with some yarn. Catch ya later...
