Busy, No Knitting But Chocolate!

Hi there! I'm getting to be one of THOSE bloggers. The ones you see only once in a while. I'm sorry about that, and I'll try to make it change.

First, yesterday I guess it was, I was very busy. I met a friend at starbucks, then moved on to shoe shopping (I did get ONE pair, that was on sale), then this little bakery in plainville.

I got:



And my friend got:



Mine was filled with a light chocolate mousse and had like coconut sugar, and her's was a dulce de luche filled cannoli. This was a little after noon I believe and I could not finish it... but it was very good and their breakfast menu looks good, so I'll probably be going back.

My nana came back from a graduation round trip (three of her grandchildren were graduating from something or other), and brought this back with her, from my aunt. I guess it was a project that didn't work out.



I'm so excited. I can't decide if I should make a sweater or a shawl or both. I would want to make a short sleeved cardigan or maybe a tank top, with lace for summer. We'll see. I love the color too.

Last but not least, I got a really cool vinyl sticker for my laptop the other day in the mail!



I got it from Azure Rocket, and even though the mail people held it hostage, I eventually got it and LOVE it. I can't wait to bring my knitting is love proclaiming laptop to class. It's going to be awesome. Knitting will come tomorrow, I still don't have much progress to show, I'm kind of sick. I had to do an overnight for work from 9pm to 4am (which ended up being 6am and was another thing I did yesterday), and I was getting sick....and now I am. Oh well, we got to watch movies at work and get paid for trying to sleep. But now I'm more tired than I have been in a long time. I'll sleep well tonight!

Those desserts look delicious!

I think the green yarn wants to be a lacey spring/summer cardigan. That's what I would do with it.

It sounds like you've had a great few days. I think that pure silk could be something like this: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/spongebobtanu/soleil
