Pretty in Pink
A pretty pink baby blanket is my latest project in the works, but it is very slow going. The pattern is Holding Hands baby blanket which I started on February 7th. It's been 10 days and I don't have a whole lot to show for it considering it's the only knitting project that I've been working on. Yes, sometimes I do fall asleep at night knitting, but for the most part I've been pretty diligent. The yarn is Lion Brand Pound of Love and it's super soft. I'm really liking how it's working up despite the fact it is not a quick knit. The pattern kind of reminds me of a cross stitch or smocking. Although I didn't have a baby in mind, I have to admit I was so intrigued by the pattern so much so that I had to knit it. I thought it would an enjoyable pattern and I was right :)
I've also been working on homemade pizza. Found a new easy pizza dough in the book Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day . This is a rather new book by the authors of Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking . I loved that book and now I love this one, too. The nice crispy, but chewy dough is easy to mix up. The added bonus is you can do it the day before and keep the dough in the fridge. You can even freeze the dough for later. Water, all purpose flour, yeast and kosher salt are the only ingredients! That's it. Simple and easy. Here's my pizzas --one with tomato sauce, mushrooms and peperoni:
and a white mushroom pizza:
Try it...you'll like it!
