Can This Ever Be Bad?
Getting a styrofoam package on your doorstep with the words “Highly Perishable Frozen…” Can this ever be bad?
Can This Ever Be Bad?…The Answer is No!
Regardless, I always love seeing these kinds of packages arrive.
Many of you know, Thaddeus‘ birthday falls on Valentine’s Day, so this styrofoam joy-box is his birthday cake. Since he saw it arrive, we decided to begin celebrating his 68th birthday a little early.
One positive aspect of COVID was finding this cake/candy company. Savannah’s Candy Kitchen makes the best coconut layer cake (by far) that I’ve ever had. The cake/sponge is moist and flavorful. The coconut is also moist and flavorful. And the icing is smooth and sweet and delicious. And if you don’t like coconut, I can also HIGHLY recommend the Caramel Cake.
Those are the only cakes we’ve had from this company, but I would definitely try any others without fear! One of these days, we may try some of their candy as well.
I knit another Snug Cowl/Gaiter. But this time it’s slightly different.
Yes, it looks the same as the last on in this colorway.
Except for how the striping was done. In the latest one, I didn’t use the helical striping method. So the “jog” is somewhat evident.
And for those of you who prefer the other-side-out, the latest one shows that the yarn color not being knit was carried up at the beginning of the round.
The difference is particularly striking when I’m knitting with three colors. This cowl/gaiter won’t be sold. It was made as a demonstration for a workshop on helical striped knitting at the upcoming Men’s Knitting Retreat in May. I wanted to show the differences between regular striped knitting in-the-round and helical striped knitting.
