  1. The Goodenough Cardi is going to be lovely - is it for you? I can't wait to see you hand-stitched clothing! While I'm not a granola fan - I bet that this is yummy!

    1. Goodnough (Bonnie Sennott explains that it's pronounced "good'-no") is for me, provided it fits. I never really know how a knitted garment will fit when knit from the bottom up, so keep your fingers crossed that it works out well. The granola really is delicious and I have enough to make the granola bread found in the same book, lucky me!

  2. Beautiful yarn and homemade granola. Does not get better xox Clarice

  3. Beautiful card and your stitching on the t is stunning!

    I still have yet to make the cookies.....
