Two weeks in a row with an Unraveled Post? Could this become a series? I'm…
In the spirit of “begin as you mean to continue” I spent my time this weekend, the first of not only a new year but also a new decade, doing the things I love the most.
I knitted, of course. This is the start of the Mondo Cable Pulli in Beaverslide. The yarn is yummy and the pattern is well written and I’m enjoying knitting this.
I also did some spinning. This is pencil roving from Rhinebeck that JessaLu threw at me suggested I buy. It feels good to spin again!
I started my Project 365 set on flickr.
I kicked Dale’s ass playing rummy. I’m going to pay for posting this (he’s a very sore loser, you know) but it’s so worth it!
I watched some Women’s College Basketball. The Tennessee Lady Vols rocked against Oklahoma.
I cooked. I made delicious chicken chili and crab dip and I baked homemade bread. I love baking bread and the yeasty smell that fills my house when I make it. Mmm.
I finally made homemade pasta. It was fun and the results were delicious! I made fettuccine and then threw together a sauce with baby spinach, mushrooms, garlic, bacon, wine and heavy cream. Yummm.
Let me see . . . I know there was something else . . . oh yeah . . . I finished Flyingdales . . . on December 30th. wOOt.

Yay for finishing it!! Can’t wait to see it!
Sounds like you had a perfectly wonderful weekend!
Fine fine new year’s start!
You my friend are on a roll! Woot is right!
You were quite the busy bee all weekend and your house must have smelled good for every minute of it.
Awesome way to spend the week. Love the final score at cards!
What a nice start to a new year and a new decade. 🙂
Wow, you were busy this weekend! I love the spinning. Pencil roving is fun to spin, isn’t it? Congratulations on the rummy victory!!! 🙂
Sounds like a very satisfying weekend. Can’t wait to see your sweater.
The pasta sounds like it came out yummy!
I like the colors of that pencil roving. I can see why Jess “suggested” it to you!
Wow what a full weekend! It all sounds great though and i can’t wait to see the new sweater.
Great on the finish! And, on making pasta!!! That must have been fun. The bread looks awesome! And, I like the knitting and spinning – but, then you knew I would.
You’re off to a great start!
Happy new year, Carole! You’re off to a great start. The Mondo Cable is next on my sweater list! Love that you’re knitting it, too!!
You seem to be very good at a$$ kicking for a variety of games….Hmm…Bejeweled Blitz comes to mind.
What a great idea! I love all of the things you got done. It makes me wish I was more productive.
I was only looking out for your best interests… ;o)
BUSY and productive new year already!!!!
Mmmmm, I love that yeasty (and non-yeasty sourdough) smell, too. I used to bake bread weekly, but sadly no more.
Ah, the NEW pasta attachment for the Kitchenaid — it’s excellent. The old (first) version was the one that wasn’t so good. That’s a gorgeous sheet of noodle!
I really did think I should start the year as I meant to go on, but it’s so rare to have DH home that I ended up lounging on the couch with him instead, reading, writing a bit, knitting, and smiling. Today I am doing the Carole thing of setting up the year to come (scalloped potatoes in the oven, knitting, etc.).
I love the smell of homemade bread! Sounds like a great weekend.
Perfect way to start the new year!
As busy as you were, that’s how lazy I was, LOL! Now that you’ve mentioned that yummy bread smell, however, I am going to have to drag out the bread machine soon. Trying to think how to work your a$$kicking into the conversation on Thursday, hehehehehe!
I’m so glad that one of us was victorious in our card-playing. I kept picking the wrong singles to discard and SB ended up winning, but I’ll get him next time!
You’ve been busy. You’re so lucky to have Jessalu in your corner.
who did the math? I thought it was closer than that…
Congrats on the rummy score! (I got a lovely spinning stool… now for the time to sit and spin!)
Life really should be about favorite things…
Wow! You’re rocking the new year!
oh how wonderful! from the knits and the spin to the yummy sounding food – and hurrah for finishing flyingdales!!
