A week or so ago WEBS offered a special limited edition dye-lot of Lorna’s Lace yarn in honor of the Patriots winning of Superbowl LI. The name of the color is “RogerThat”, a name only a Pats fan might appreciate. I couldn’t resist so I ordered a skein and was surprised that it arrived yesterday. I’ve spent the better part of the day trying to get started. I am going to make a Sockhead Slouch Hat. I did the cast on and found an error so ripped it out. Did that once more, ripped out once more. Finally, I got the stitches on the needed and got about three rounds knitted when I lost some of the stitches off the needle and could not get them back on so I ripped the whole thing apart and went to the local yarn store and bought a new needle. Of course, it was the needle’s fault I’d made all those mistakes, right? Anyway, I have the hat started and have completed two rows of the ribbing.
I should not be starting a new project since I have so many currently going. That just seems to be my style, though. I had vowed not to buy any more yarn until I had my current WIPs done but I couldn’t resist the special Pats yarn.
We went to 5 Guys for dinner and ate cheeseburgers without the bread. That makes such an awesome meal. I’ve gotten so accustomed to eating my burgers with a fork and knife that I’m not sure I’d even like a bun if I tried.
We are still following our same “slow carb” way of eating. No bread, rice, pasta, white potatoes, white rice, sugar, artificial sweetener, etc. It’s really become a lifestyle now and the few times we’ve strayed it’s really made us feel so lousy that we jump right back on the bandwagon with full force.
I found some soybean pasta at Aldi last week and it is great. Since sometimes things appear at Aldi and then disappear again I plan on going back and buying a few more boxes of this. The only ingredient is soybeans and it has twice as much protein as it has carbs.
I cooked up some of the pasta with some chicken sausage, artichoke hearts, and some tomato basil sauce, and served it with some melted mozzarella cheese. It was really good. I still have half the box left and I want to try it with an Alfredo sauce next.
We have a warm up coming this weekend, so I hope to get out and get in some walking in the sunshine and fresh air! It’s time to be done with snow and ice!
