I actually started a knitting project last night. I started the gauge swatch for Sackboy which I am making for Princess Ivi’s boyfriend. He is going away to boot camp in the fall so hopefully, I will have it done by then but if not by then, definitely by Christmas. Have I mentioned how much I hate doing gauge swatches? I do. They are boring and time consuming but I guess they are a necessary evil.
It feels strange to be knitting again. Kind of like renewing a long lost friendship.
I made refrigerator pickles on Sunday. I already sampled them because I couldn’t wait the two days the recipe called for. They are good but a bit too salty. I am hoping that the salt issue is just because it was the bottom of the brine pitcher and that the first container made is not so salty. Of course, I will still eat them anyway.
