Knitting!! (and why i haven't been baking)

You might be wondering why a BAKING blog has pictures of sweaters and yarn and an owl? Well, I recently learned how to knit more than a scarf. Last November, I joined a new team at work and there is this really great group of knitters. From master level to beginner they all meet over lunch in a conference room to knit 3 days a week. It has been a really nice way to spend a lunch hour when it is so cold outside.

I made my first sweater for Connor. Connor has his 1st Birthday tomorrow! This explains why I have not been baking much lately. Most 1 year olds that I know would not be that jazzed over a sweater - so I made an owl to go with it. The owl pattern was free and can be found on Lion's Brand website (it may require a free registration):

Can you guess which one is mine?

Beautiful sweater! I haven't graduated from ponchos and shrugs yet but I'm getting there. I haven't had much spare time to do some knitting or sewing but seeing this makes me miss it!
