I have finally cast off the Hap Blanket last night. I still have to weave in all the ends and block it but at least it is one thing off of my to do knitting list. Unblocked it just fits on the bed. It will be interesting to see how much it grows with blocking as my past experiences with the feather and fan pattern show that it can grow quite a bit.

I started working on the second secret project for my mother. There wasn’t enough yarn to do what she requested so I have paired it with some cashmere in my stash to help the yarn go a little further so I can create what I see in my head. All I will show you is the two yarns as the final product is suppose to be a surprise.

Last night we had some friends over to watch the last regular season game between the Leafs and Habs (Habs won 4-1). I made some appetizers with the leftover phyllo pastry from the Moroccan chicken pie I made on Wednesday. The triangles are filled with caramelized onions, feta, olives and sundried tomatoes and the little logs have bananas and honey. They were delicious!

Today we had delicious sourdough pancakes and I will be making sourdough bread today for the week.
