It's been too long blog. I will say in advance I apologize for the quality of any photos I post- they are all taken via iPhone. I wish I had a nice DSLR camera- but I know I wouldn't commit to the time of learning how to use it. I love reading all the knitting blogs I subscribe to each day so hopefully one day I'll become one that other's enjoy reading as well. I'll just start off with a picture of food and a picture of some yarn/project. I also want to post my knitting projects for winter 2011-winter 2012 (for each season), partly for organization and partly for motivation. I spend almost more time thinking and reading about knitting than actually knitting... Pish Posh.  Here are some Kansas City treats.

The Citron crepe from Chez Elle. This is one of my two favorites. I can never bring myself to order a savory crepe - the sweet ones are so phenomenal. It's filled with lemon curd and touched with raspberry sauce, strawberries and whipped cream. MMMmmm. Charlotte doesn't have any creperie's... tear. 

 This hear is from Nica's cafe, which has since relocated and moved downtown. The concept is unique- choose a dish and choose a cooking style (Cajun, italian etc). This is italian pasta. It's deliciously fattening. So yummy!
The BEST ham and cheese croissant anywhere- from Bloom Baking Co in City Market.

These beauties are from Stitches South 2011. My first Stitches- no classes just shopping. I have three skeins of Madelinetosh vintage in Robin's egg, one in Madelinetosh sock. I also have some madtosh lace in a beautiful teal. I would love to make a cropped sweater or regular sweater with the vintage someday. The sock will turn into the Rustling Leaves beret from Coastal Knits, which I love with all of my heart. I preordered so I got a wonderful coupon code, and bought the Shawl Collared cowl and Cream and Sugar cowl by Alana Dakos and the Fox hat and effortless cardigan by Hannah Fettig.

Shall post the projects later this week. Must figure out how to create links...  Happy National Knit blog  month!
