sloooow

I am knitting, I promise. However, this hat has put me in a bit of a funk. The yarn is yummy but wearing thin cause row 15 has been knit and reknit a few too many times. Oy. I finally got smart and put markers in between every 24 st pattern repeat. Hoping that will help out my brain.
Charlie reminded me that I used to make a lot more cookies.
Okay then.
Lemon Sugar cookies were made last week and this.
Big, chewy and full of flavor.
We highly recommend them.

Now back to my hat.

Jane said...

hellooooo! Thanks for the link to the cookies. I've tried to knit a few cabled hats this winter and was NOT successful!

Allison said...

Those cookies look divine! I'll definitely have to try them out!

Jen said...

My mouth is watering because of those cookies! I need to make some very soon!

Yum! Cookies!

I love the hat. I've made about 20 this winter, but only because they were small-child sized, mostly with bulky yarn. It's been a fun thing to do. I tried a couple of cable patterns of my own, which resulted in some cool texture, but slightly odd patterns...

Thank goodness it was for a 4yo who lives for bright colors and crazy patterns! I finally started one on a size 5 needle, with a sport-weight yarn. Yay for pretty, lacy hats!

Bake that boy more cookies! He'll grow way too fast!

Pam said...

The hat is a beautiful pattern. I bet it will be really warm once it's finished ...
My sons and I made several different cookies from your list in the last month and they were all so delicious and easy to make. Thank you for sharing another recipe.

Oh, your knitting is gorgeous!

I LOVE cables, but. Too hard in a car, or while watching TV, or a hockey game... I think I'll have to save them for those days when I'm not chauffering - I mean, parenting, so... intensely. Love lemon - can't wait to try the cookies!

Yummy yarn and cookies. I haven't purchased cookies in awhile and the ones I made just last week have been gobbled up with a few blinks of the eye. Now my children are walking around looking in cupboards and asking for more. These would fit the bill nicely. Thanks.

Maryse said...

This hat will be so nice! My mouth is watering too!

Kristen said...

Looks like a great cookie recipe, thank you. Lots of lemons here in California right now, so will make them this weekend!

Those cookies sound delicious! I have been craving homemade baked goods as of late but I have been battling laziness as well :)

That hat is gorgeous. I've added it to my queue. I'm in the luvinthemommyhood's Warm Up Winter KAL and that hat will be a great knit for that.

The cookies look great. I made some Lemon Snowdrops cookies today that I stumbled across from Pinterest.

They were delicious and so easy. You should give them a try and the other recipe that led me to these are great too. California Dreamin' Cookies. Just a couple more ideas for your cookie repertoire.

nice one on the cookie front mate! We are on summer holidays and my starving little cuties are eating me outta the house and this mama is getting a little bored making the same ole same ole!

I enjoy knitting cables but I haven't learned to knit them without a cable needle yet. I hope the hat pattern works out for you.

severien said...

It's becoming a very nice hat though, I like it so far. :) And YUMMMM those cookies

Brandi Schoch said...

Your hat is beautiful. The cookies look tasty. Had the hide the page from the hubs as I read it.I didn't want him to get any ideas.

I had a scarf that every time I got to row 17 I had to start over. It's in the stash box now. Thanks for the recipe I love sugar cookies.

Proud Mama said...

Beautiful hat. I hate when something that should be easy gets me. Good plan to use markers. Oy. I will be making these cookies today for our time at the park. I do always appreciate your weekly or whenever cookie recipes.

OOO, know what you mean! I had started a lace ribbon scarf back in the fall and tried to finish it before Thanksgiving. Somewhere along the line (never figured out where) I had messed up and I ripped back about 7 or 8 times. I picked it up several times, and every time, it kept getting off. I finally threw it in my bag to "cool off" from it. I took it out after the holidays and went back 2 rows and sailed along just perfectly!!! It is now finished! GOSH! REALLY!?

So good to hear you are back at your knitting! ~Jan

Suzanne said...

Maria said...

Glad you liked the cookies!

JoAnn said...

What a gorgeous cabled hat pattern! It will look very sharp in the charcol gray. Markers are a knitter's best friend :)

Jennifer said...

Great post. Love slow knitting - sometimes that's best. The cookies look delicious and I love the tower of cookies photograph. Mmmm. Thanks for the link to the recipe.

Victoria said...

Your knitting may be a pain but it is looking fab - as do those cookies. Have a lovely weekend. x

Sarah said...

I am currently knitting that same hat - and it has been a bear for me, too! Luckily it is beautiful and the yarn soft or I'd have tossed it all to the side already!

Lori ann said...

my knitting is going this way too, on the needles, off the needles, count, recount. oh dear.

the greenhorn knitter said...

Your cookies look delicious, Leslie! I also love the yarn you're using for your new hat. Have a great weekend!

stitching under oaks said...

both your projects look delicious...I really need to pick up my needles and get stitching! Enjoy your days!

Andi said...

Lovely hat, I hope by now that is has stopped giving you so much trouble. :) Thank you for the cookie link!

Left you a message on ravelry. For your hat compare the written directions to the chart. One might not match the other.

Jolie said...

Oh I always love seeing your cookie recipes (nearly as much as the knitting!) Thanks for sharing - might have to try this one!

Lemon cookies have already been made TWICE in the household. Simple and really yummy!

I think I'll be hiding some in the freezer to grab when we have some unexpected guests (or to hide from my adult son who LOVES them and will polish off a whole batch very quickly).

Oh, so delicious.
