First: I've started making wash clothes for my roomies. They are all paranoid about loofahs being unsanitary (I don't totally get it - are our toothbrushes much different?), but I'm making them cotton wash clothes instead. I used a smaller needle size than recommended so that they are dense and squishy.
I got a vegan baking book! I can't make anything from it yet, but valentine's day is my first day off restricted eating and I'm making that cake! (the recipes mostly use agave nectar, which I'll be able to eat then, but not right now)
I saw Rae Spoon last night (I enjoyed it more than I've enjoyed a show in a really long time. It was SO GOOD, and y'all should give it a try), and got this little book from the cigarette machine there! I met the artist in the fall, but hadn't made it to the venue until now. It's by far the best thing that's fallen out of a vending machine for me.
I made myself some cashmere arm warmers from an old sweater that had a hole. The wind is so cold right now, I needed something to protect my wrists between my coat and mittens. They're also awesome if I need to get my phone out without leaving my whole hand exposed.
Hope everyone's week was great! Thanks for the cooking suggestions, I'm on my way trying things out...
