Aidez

I spent part of the weekend curled up with my knitting needles and many cups of coffee from my new bestie, the Nespresso machine. Blissful! Aidez is coming along quite nicely. The first few rows juggling the cable patterns were tough going, but it became easier with practice, as most things do. I *know* I'm doing one of the narrow cross-stitch cables wrong (they're supposed to be mirrored), but I wasn't about to change my methods midstream. I'm certainly not picky enough to rip way back and make them perfect (so not the point of knitting for me).

in the kitchen

- Curried tofu with tomatoes, with coconut rice

- My buffalo chicken chili recipe is a part of Pottery Barn's latest theme party feature, Big Game Party!

I'm knitting Aidez, too! You're way ahead of me, though. I love the color you chose! It looks fantastic.

Coconut rice? Yum, I HAVE to try that! Where do you buy it? Aidez will be wonderful!

Maryse said...

If you say nothing, nobody will guess that they have to be mirrored. I look forward to seeing the finished product. The color is beautiful!

My Aidez is less than perfect, but I love that sweater so much I am tempted to make another, something I've never done with a sweater!
Love yours!!!

Congrats on getting a recipe published with Pottery Barn! Do you have the recipe for the tofu dish? The link just takes me back to the blog post. Thanks. Sweater is looking great so far! (sjn821)

Aidez looks great so far! Nice and warm, and I love that shade of blue. You'll be wearing it in no time!

Coming along nicely!

You are making the pattern your's. And so long as you like the look, who really cares?

Rachel said...

Wow, you are making huge progress on Aidez...that color is gorgeous! I like your attitude. I, too, have too much stress in my life and need knitting to take some away rather than give me more!

I just can't get over how gorgeous that blue is!

And thanks for the link to the curried tofu recipe. I may have to try that one this weekend. Yum!

I'm knitting Aidez too, and I'm also doing the cable differently. Yours looks lovely so far.
