Perfect weather today, it's warm and the sun in shining and I have a bowl of sweet-smelling dough rising on the windowsill next to me! I'm making the Melonpan (Japanese Cookie Bread) recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking - they are little sweet bread buns that are so delicious with a morning cup of coffee.
I've also been reading this book and re-reading this book and listening to my newest favorite album ever over and over and over in order to memorize every beautiful word.
Have a nice weekend!

I've been a little under the weather the past few days and have been crocheting a bit as I recover. It's a new blanket, made from my classic granny square pattern and worked in two colors. I love the way it looks so far (and so does my cat). More later, now it's time to nap.

I've been working on this over the past few days and I think it's finished now...
On this narrow planet, we have only the choice between two
unknown worlds. One of them tempts us - ah! what a dream to
live in that! - the other stifles us at the first breath.

More kusadama flowers... they're addicting! I taught my class how to make them today and they caught origami fever!

I'm calling this my Emily Dickinson scarf, but it's really Martha Stewart's Knitted Neck Scarf! I wanted to take a break from the Wedgewood for a little while and knitting something in garter stitch seemed strangely appealing to me..... I am using the 2nd Time Around cotton yarn I posted about here. Honestly, I'm a little surprised at how enjoyable this project has been and I can't wait until it's finished! I even have a little embellishment idea in mind.
