time

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!

Oh, swoon, the Tangled Yoke looks so soft and pretty. I love the soft grey shade - so, so pretty.

Those blondies are making me hungry...

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

Hege said...

Your tangled yoke looks so soft and warm. Looking forward to the action pictures ;)

Have a great weekend!

I wish I could dive into the screen and munch up all your blondies... Yum!

MadMad said...

Oh, it's beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Hope your car is fixed soon - that's terrible that it's taking so long!

Lisa said...

Can't wait to see if modeled!!!

Stacey said...

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?

Kristin said...

I have yet to make blondie, I have all kinds of recipes for them. Maybe this afternoon...

Tangled yoke looks lovely!

Sarah said...

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.

Windy Knitty said...

Yum... those blondies look so delicious! I'll definitely have to try those.

Can't wait to see more pics of the tangled yoke!

Emily said...

Carrie said...

Mmmmmm, blondies. Can't wait to see more of tangled yoke!

Oliver Rain said...

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.

Oliver Rain said...

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

Meggie said...

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.

Stella said...

Leslie, you're making me so hungry!! And I can't wait to see the action shots.

Rachel said...

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!

gkgirl said...

love the color
of the sweater
and
mmmmmmmmmm....
lookin' good!

Cinnamonamon said...

Can't wait to see action shots of the TY -- it already is gorgeous!

SpiderWomanKnits said...

Oh My. Both your sweater and the blondies look scrumptious!

I can't wait to see more of your sweater and I guess I am just going to have to make those blondies to see them for myself!

Louise said...

Wow, double yummy!!

Denise said...

Can't wait to see the cardi on you, I know it will look great. Love them blondies too - yum :-)

KeanaLee said...

it looks good babe! I like it!Can't wait for action shots!

peaknits said...

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!

amandajean said...

your tangled yoke looks wonderful. I love it in gray. I am looking forward to your sure to be fabulous action shots!

hope you have a car again soon!

sherri said...

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.

Becky said...

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.

The_Add_Knitter said...

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

nova said...

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.

Berlinswhimsy said...

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!

leslie said...

oh, i love your beautiful sweater. amazing. and those treats, too. enjoy both!

YoMJ said...

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

Michele said...

tangled yoke looks SO pretty!
all best with the car return.

Nora said...

Oh, it's beautiful. I love the colour and "tangled" detailing.

[Not even looking at the blondies - am on a diet!]

La Cabeza Grande said...

I love your cardigan with its sweet little buttons, Leslie! Speaking of sweet, it's 1 o'clock in the morning and I want to run out and get some blondies. Somewhere.

Kirsten said...

Mmmmmm, blondies!
I'm looking forward to the "in action" shots.

Alisha said...

The tangled yoke looks amazing...can't wait to see some action shots!

~drool~ over the blondies!

curlypurly said...

your tangled yoke is lovely, and those blondies make me want to jump into my computer and lap them up!

Kaet said...

these blondies look amazing. i am usually not a blondie girl- i am not big on coconut- but yours look really good!
i am also really liking the sweater, that shade of grey is stunning. love it!
you are not the only one who is low on knitting mojo this week...i feel it a little too.

Betsy said...

wow Leslie, those blondies look good!!!!

I may have to make some this weekend, even though we are officially on the post-partum diet. Being sleep deprived makes me crave sweets!

cloth.paper.string said...

yay for sweet treats and sweaters complete! the tangled yoke looks fantastic.

Romi said...

Gorgeous! And as always, catching up on your blog is a feast for the eyes! How do you do it? :)

KnitPastis said...

Wow, that is a great looking sweater and such sweet little buttons you choose. Yes, I can't wait to see you show this off!
Crossing fingers in hopes that your car is fixed fast.

Elinor said...

Ohh, action shots please!!! Tangled Yoke looks so nice! I hope your car and productivity return to you soon!

Olga said...

If the only time you had yielded this sweater and the blondies, then I would say that was very productive! I'm looking forward to your modeled shots; they're always beautiful.

Queen of the froggers said...

Tangled Yolk looks great and so do those cakes! Sometimes we are more productive when there is more to do, I don't know why!

iknitipurl said...

The brownies look yummy! I'm crossing my fingers that you get the car back soon. I know how it feels being trapped without a car! :(

Kara said...

Oh, Tangled Yoke sure is lookin; purdy. I can't wait to see it in action.

tiennie said...

Yes, action shots please! So pretty!!
