Sweaters and New Things

I managed to get totally caught up on pattern writing over the weekend, and I'm almost finished with the body of my orange Finn! I just started the garter stitch hem last night, but after knitting almost four inches earlier in the day I was just too pooped to keep going. I'm hoping to finish it today, and to pick up the first button band, but we'll see what I have time for. I have to move some things around in my apartment tonight so my friends can help get get my piano moved in from my parent's house on Tuesday, but that shouldn't take too long.

This weekend I also managed to try some new things! I made tuna onigiri for the first time, and I also cooked a spaghetti squash on my own for the first time! I was expecting the onigiri to be more difficult than it was, since I don't have a mold for it, but it turns out keeping your hands wet makes everything go smoothly. I almost cut myself a couple times while cutting the spaghetti squash, but fortunately I made it through the experience unscathed.

Linking up with Crafting On
