Cream of celery soup with some leftover rice (with Munster cheese) thrown into it.  I am making braised radishes, too, but I'm pretty full.  I think they'll be for lunch tomorrow.

For my winter knitting I made myself a mittens and cowl scarf set in a very soft yarn:

Otherwise, I've been making a ton of baby hats because my coworkers insist on having babies!

We had green beans, too. I made three recipes from my new Spanish cookbook.  We had baked eggplant and tomatoes with cheese, green beans in a vinegar egg sauce, and baked apples with whipped cream and caramel sauce.  All winners!

I was lazy, but it was good. We had pasta with "improved" store-bought sauce and parmesan cheese on top.  The store-bought sauce was a fresh puttanesca to which I added sauteed tomato, onion, generic white mushrooms, and red pepper flakes.

We had open-face slices of french bread, toasted, with tomato, herbed cream cheese, smoked salmon and avocado.  And green beans on the side.

Today I made and ate these cheddar-dill scones


They were great, but I only used 1/2 c. dill and I they were very heavy on the dill flavor, so I wouldn't use the whole cup the recipe asks for.

We had turkey sandwiches on cheddar-dill scones.

To confuse things more, here's the reply I got when I wrote to Wenlan's website:

The ideal way to do this kind of pocket is that when you knit up the where the pocket opening is, put down the sweater and cast on 7 stitches and continue making the pocket bag. In this sweater, there are 2 pockets so you need to do 2 pcs of the pocket bag. If you do not have another set of needle, you can push all the sweater body stitiches to the tube part of the needle and use the needle to make pocket and then put the pocket on holder.

When you finish both pocket bags, continue the body knitting but when you knit up to where the pocket opening are, instead of knit the original opening on the body, continue your knitting on the pocket bag but put the pocket opening on holder. When you finish the entire sweater, you come back to take care of the pocket by seam the pocket bag into the garment (just like when you seam a regular side seam) and picking up stitches from the on hold pocket opening and start ribbing and then bind off the rib opening.

I had already decided to skip the pockets, knit the sweater and then sew on pocket fronts with extra yarn.  Maybe I will try the pockets again if I knit another one.

We had mussels steamed in white wine with onions and garlic in a mustard and cream sauce and crispy rosemary potatoes (crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside).  Yum!

I have the first two stitch treasuries.  I know this thread isn't exactly a stitch-along, but I hope it's okay if I share. Here are some links to photos of projects I have made based on the stitches in Barbara Walker's "A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns" (my favorite of the two).  I also made a "swatch scarf with patterns from The treasuries and "Knitting For Dummies."

1. The rosette pattern http://www.flickr.com/photos/jsphotos/89858845/in/set-72057594050530643/

2. Small Quilted Cross-Stitch

3. Rank and File Stitch

4. Blind Buttonhole
(there's also a photo of the wrong side in my photostream)

5. Fluffy Brioche

6. Tiny Bowknot

7. Maze mosaic pattern

8. Rambler
(there's a wrong side photo in there, too)

9. Parenthetical Rib

10. Seaweed Stitch

11. Wave Lattice

12. Three-Color Daisy (but I used 4 colors)
