I noticed one teeny tiny error all the way down my Mara Shawl, and HAD to fix it.
After some frustration (they say to never work on something when you're frustrated, but that didn't stop me) and a phone call to Jenn for some "talking through" as I'd never picked up a stitch in garter before, I managed to follow a tutorial online and pick up the stitches correctly (it was about 15 rows of garter I had pick up to fix a twisted stitch). I got it. I'm proud of myself too.
Current progress on my Mara Shawl.
Tonight we were trying to think of what to make for supper... I was all out of ideas and then it dawned on me. I was going to try to replicate what my SIL made this past week while over. She made it for herself and her boyfriend for lunch one day, and I tried some and it was really good. And VERY easy to make as well.
You boil your pasta as you normally would. In a wok you fry onions, and any vegetables you'd like. We had carrots on hand, so I used those. I wish I had baby corn and celery, but I didn't. You add in a can of any cream of "whatever" soup - we had cream of broccoli, so I used that, with a touch of water, and you make your cream sauce - very easy. Once your pasta is ready, you strain it, and then add it slowly into the wok and mix it up. Serve & eat. Yum! Simple & Easy!
We were watching the Habs game tonight before Sean went to bed, and while eating some popcorn and Sean says to me "Remember when Egg came over, and had popcorn at our house?". I laughed. I couldn't believe he remembered that. Mona brought Egg over on October 24th, 2009, over 2 months ago! Kids... their memories are just incredible.
Tonight after both kids were in bed and the Habs game was over, Jamie and I watched Star Trek. While I am not a Trekkie, I did enjoy the movie. I found Chris Pine who played Kirk to be very cute, and I like Zachary Quinto who played Spock, who also is Syler on Hereos. He's pretty darn cute himself. The characters were nice to look at, and I got a lot of knitting done on my Mara Shawl. I'm not complaining. It wasn't a total waste of 2 hours and 7 minutes.
