Sarah and I were quite busy at the Studio yesterday, so I decided to have a quiet day at home today. I had considered going in to work at the library, but thought I'd be better off if I enjoyed time at home.
We had another cold morning, and I enjoyed lingering over coffee. I finished knitting Joel's new socks and I also finished a child's hat -- to be donated. I used a basic knit hat pattern, but since I was running low on the pink yarn, I purchased a coordinating blue yarn, and added alternating stripes using the Fibonacci sequence. The blue stripes were in seed stitch, adding a textural element too.
I made bread dough in the bread machine, and made a bit of a mistake. I added too much water, so when the dough cycle was complete, I had a runny dough. At this point I thought I didn't have much to lose, so I added about a cup or so of flour, restarted the cycle and let the machine run about halfway through the cycle. I stopped the machine, and let the refortified dough rise for about 20 minutes. It worked, and the rolls were yummy!
I also gave in to my childhood memory, and made baked macaroni and cheese, adding some sharp white cheddar to the mixture. YUM!
Portia and I watched Braveheart and started knitting another hat while Joel made pizza dough. I'm behind on movies and had been wanting to watch this for quite a while.
A quiet, productive day. I hope it's good preparation for the busy week ahead!
