Weekend Knitting and Baking

Hello Friends,

I hope you are all doing well. This weekend I baked some vegan brownies and started knitting fingerless gloves after searching for patterns on Ravelry. Last night we had my boyfriend's sister and her boyfriend over for a pizza and board games night. It was a fun night and it is always so fun to have them over. Today my boyfriend and I had a relaxing day in and I caught up on my knitting and then we had a lovely dinner later with his mom.

I have started knitting the fingerless gloves today and really looking forward to seeing how they take shape as I knit on. I am using the pattern Ribbed Fingerless Mitts pattern by Kathy North which I found on Ravelry. The yarn I am using is the Allegria Grande yarn by Manos Del Uruguay which is worsted weight yarn and I am using size US 8 5 mm needles. This is the first time I have knitted fingerless gloves and have not really knitted many gloves yet. I am looking forward to wearing these gloves once they are done so I can always have my fingers free and also keep my hands warm in the gloves. I once owned a pair of fingerless gloves when I worked with children at a childcare center and it was easier for me to have my fingers free and be able to still use my fingers for zipping up little zippers and any other things I had to do quickly.

I finished knitting that secret hat project for my mom and looking forward to giving it to her in February for her birthday. She chose such a lovely bulky green yarn and it was so fun to knit with because it was soft and also knitted up quickly because of its bulky size.  I am looking forward to sharing photos of the finished hat with you soon.

Yesterday I was baking some vegan brownies and I used the Dolled Up Desserts Bettie's Brownie mix. My sister bought the mix for me for Christmas and I was looking forward to trying them out! I just added coconut oil and maple syrup and the bag of ground flax seeds they provided in the bag. They are so delicious! It was nice to have a brownie which wasn't too sweet and rich and also felt a bit guilt-free because you aren't adding tons of butter as you usually would.

I hope you all had a good weekend too and had some time to knit or crochet as well. This week I will be working on knitting the Wool and the Gang Farrah Billie Jean top and the fingerless gloves. I am also almost finished reading a couple of books so I will be working on reading more to finish them up.
