For BYOCN Some Soft and Fluffy Blueberry Lemon Cookies

Tonight is BYOCN (bring your own craft night) which is my knitting night and a good number of us are knitters but people bring other things as well.

I decided to make these Soft and Fluffy Blueberry Lemon Cookies to bring along.

They were so easy to make.

I am the queen of leaving out ingredients, forgetting to bring the butter and eggs to room temperature, and just plain making a mess.  But the sugar and butter creamed perfectly, I folded in the blueberries with few of them breaking, and I didn’t burn anything or get them stuck to the pan.

We had to test one out for quality control purposes. They are so light and sweet and tangy.  I thought they might be almost like a muffin top, but they are not dense at all just soft and cakey.

And the blueberries are so juicy and sweet.

And now I will go bring them to my fellow crafters.


Finished: Super Simple Baby Tunic

It’s finished and I think it is so cute.  The Super Simple Baby Tunic that I’ve been working on here and there for a month or so got it’s buttons today and is ready for my friend who I will see tomorrow.

This is made from Plymouth Encore which I like for baby projects because it’s machine washable.  It also knits up nicely and makes a sturdy fabric.

How cute are these buttons?  I found them today at Joann Fabrics and I think they work perfectly for this little baby dress that can evolve into a little tunic as the child grows.

Can’t wait to see this on the new baby who arrives at the end of July.


A hat for a peanunt

My friend has a baby on the way and tomorrow I will be seeing her so I thought I would give a her a couple things that I made for the baby.  I just need buttons to finish the one item.  But this two night, quick baby hat is finished.

I mostly followed the pattern which is called Cozy Cap. I did the first increase row wrong because I wasn’t fully paying attention so I wound up with seven stitches on my needles at the end. I’d wanted to do the knotted i-cord on top but instead I did this i-cord decreasing until I had three stitches.  I wasn’t even sure if you could decrease while doing an i-cord, but I like the way it turned out.  It sort of reminds me of the Lullaby League hats in the Wizard of Oz.

The yarn is Louisa Harding Millais and it is so shiny and soft.  It will need hand washing but for such a tiny item for such a little head, I hope that isn’t too big of a deal.  Maybe by the time she grows out of it, it won’t even need to be washed that much.
