Disjointed Spring Break

It's Spring Break here, and I have been both busy and exhausted. I haven't posted pictures lately, so here's a picture of the peanut butter pie I made for Easter.
The recipe is from Bon Appetit magazine, but it doesn't seem to be on their website. This is the first time I've made peanut butter pie. It was fine. Not great, but fine. Did not compare to the Chocolate Meringue Cake that I made. Sadly, no picture of that.

I have finished a pair of socks, but still need to take a picture of those. My parents were in town for the weekend, and I took the girls, my mother, and my mother-in-law to tea at the Concord Colonial Inn. It was a lovely experience. I had been once before, but it was nice to take my mom.

While she was here, my mom sewed up the two side seams to my Viking Hoodie, and sewed in one sleeve. When I tried it on, the sweater was slightly small. I realized that while I knit one size, I blocked it to a smaller size. So dumb! I'll reblock the whole thing, but it's also a little motivation to get back on the Weight Watcher's plan. I still need to knit the hood and the ribbing, so this sweater won't be worn until Fall anyway.

I've also been working on a baby sweater (by the way, if I see you in person, and you're expecting a baby, stop reading this blog for a while. You're not missing much) and a hat. The hat is my travel project. It requires very little thinking. I would like to feel that I've made some dent in the stash before Rhinebeck.

BTW - my mom and husband totally laughed at me for my Rhinebeck planning (something about it being a little early for a packing list). I maintain that having to think about 4 little people and myself makes it okay to make lists, no matter how early.

Sorry for the disjointed post, but I hate to neglect my little blog for too long, and it's been a while.

Happy knitting!

Wow, you've made great tracks with the viking hoodie -- very impressive and hey, you've got months to shrink into it. LOL.

You're off to Rhinebeck! I can understand wanting to get ready...how exciting! It is a huge job getting everyone else ready for when you go away isn't it! I can empathise :)
