• I obviously can’t settle on a title for my Monday mash up posts.  Monday Miscellany / Miscellaneous Monday sounds a bit hoity-toity so we’ll give Monday Funday a try.
  • I made this Pineapple Upside Down Cake (without the mango – neither of us are fans) a few weeks ago and I’ve been craving it ever since.  Chris also won’t stop talking about it.

  • Ingrid (and seemingly every other woman of child bearing age) is pregnant!  I’m so excited for her!
  • I made English Muffins.  Seriously!  I had no idea they could be made at home.

    Right side = smoothsville.  On both sides I pick up under both loops of the slipped stitch.  I know there are solutions out there but a quick Google and Knitty search turned up nothing.  Your input is much appreciated.
