Did I Say Once a Month

Okay, maybe I'll blog every other month. Seriously though, I don't have a whole lot to say.

I've been working on a few projects...

These are called Monkey Socks and I got the free pattern on Knitty. I've always wanted to make these, unfortunately they're a little big on me. I'm about 8 rows from finishing them at this point, obviously I haven't taken a new picture. 

Nick's parents came for a visit and brought us this awesome Royal Wedding commemorative mug. I can't tell you how excited I am about this mug, for realz. I really want to knit the royal wedding party, must get this book.

We had some good friends visit as well & while they were here, Nick celebrated his birthday. I made him a marble cake with chocolate frosting. We weren't sad when we had some left over.

I also made these for a party recently. The marshmallow filling was a little too soft. I think humidity might have a bit to do with that. I made some marshmallows a couple weeks ago and they just weren't right, it rained a lot that day too. Lesson learned.

And Miss Amelia has now passed her 6 month birthday. Time is just flying by!

That's what's new in my neck of the woods, how about you?
