So this weekend I was in someone else's kitchen and looking for ingredients to put some type of food together. It got me thinkingabout what my staple items are. There are some things that I generally always try to have in the house for either regular snacking or I use them in a lot of recipes.
Our standards are:
mac and cheese
cheese sticks (ha almost had the typo of cheese stinks!)
What is your standard list?
On to ravelympics.
I am a little behind in my project for the ravelympics. I didn't start until yesterday but as long as my hand doesn't fall off, I should finish before the closing ceremony. I am making my first attempt at a felted handbag. For those who don't know, "felted" refers to the process of shrinking wool. It kind of turns it into...felt. So I am using that cheap, cheap wool I got a while ago to make a bag for Ava. She loves to carry things in bags, so I figure she can take my first attempt. So far it is super easy and going well. Hopefully I don't ruin it when I shrink it. If it all goes well, I want to get some really pretty yarn and make a bag for me.
I am seriously tired of my hand hurting though. It is bad. I have cut out as much of the typing that I can, most mouse activity, and I haven't knit anything in like three weeks. I sleep with a brace on, where something on my hand when I do knit and take a ton of alieve and it still kills me just after one evening of knitting. I am not sure what I am supposed to do about it. I kind of need my hand.
Here is the bag so far, though you can't tell it is a bag yet.
