Valentine's Day Cookies

For Valentine's Day this year I want to make decorate some sugar cookies. I think heart-shaped cookies are the cutest. It makes me so happy to see them.

So I made a bunch. Some chocolate and some basic sugar cookies.

This was my first time trying on Sweet Sugar Belle's sugar cookie recipe and I really like it. I love her recipe doesn't require you to refrigerate the dough. It made it so much faster not to wait.

Decorating these cookies took forever but all so worth it. I used royal icing and parchment cone. Lots and lots of parchment cone. They work better for me than using piping bags.

I had so much fun playing with different decorations. I hope you like it.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

FO Friday 7

Project: Shaelyn shawl
Needle: US 5
Yarn: 1 skein of Malabrigo Sock in Aquas

I love malabrigo yarn.
So soft.
Beautiful colorway.
Nicely variegated.
Smooth - easy to knit with.

L O V E!!!

Another finished project in the beautiful Malabrigo yarn.

This shawl is really fun to knit with. After looking through some of the other projects on Ravelry, I decided to use the size 5 needle to get more pattern repeats. I managed to get 7 pattern repeats, with about 3 grams yarn leftover.

WIP Wednesday 10

I am doing a KAL with Ginny of knittingin. This is my first KAL so I'm pretty excited.

We are making the Holden Shawlette. The project started last Saturday and we have an estimated finished date of end of February.

So far I have finished the stockinette portion and will start the fun lace part.

Though I have a feeling I will be done before the end of February, but we'll see. This shawlette uses picot bind off, which is pretty but is a pain and took me forever to do the last time I do it. 

I am using Malabrigo Sock yarn in the Solis colorway. I love the blue green variegated look!

I am also adding beads. I got a packet of size 6 Japanese Glass (Seed) Beads in blue from Bead It.

I think the packet has about 600 or so beads so it'll be a fun shawl for sure.
