I finished straining my yogurt. Won't do that again because the thicker chunks grossed me out. I don't think it made that huge of a difference. Ok I shouldn't say I won't do it again, because I probably will at some point, but I need a better system. The picture below is how much I got for $1.15. Not too shabby.
I am still waiting on my first shipment of my yarn of the month yarn! I know other have gotten theirs but I haven't. I am waiting patiently. In the mean time I made a square. I received a book of different patterned stitches for Christmas and decided that in between projects I would make random squares out of leftover and probably new (at some point) Spud and Chloe sweater yarn. I made Ava's blanket out of it and it has held up beautifully, even through washes and regular use for a couple years. I think it has great stitch definition and feels nice to use. This is my square in the sand stitch. It is really a cream colored yarn. The lighting was bad and I take all my pictures on my phone.
Here is the picture of a sweater I made for my friend's baby this summer. Nice to see what it looks like on a baby. I really liked this yarn and pattern and wouldn't mind making it again.
