baking season has arrived…

and it's really going to shove a tiny monkey wrench in my knitting time.  I love to bake, I especially love it when it turns out delicious.  Everyone's happy when I bake (usually).  Today was a perfect day...it was sunny, and bit warm and chilly and the wind was blowing pretty steady all day.   Perfect … Continue reading baking season has arrived…
