Beans on Toast


The most exciting thing I did yesterday was make beans on toast for dinner. That's the kind of ho hum day I had. Some days I have energy to spare after the big morning clean up and laundry marathon and some days I don't. Yesterday I didn't. I napped my way through the afternoon. I did get a lot of question on Saturday so it gives me something to post about today. 

First I was asked about the needles I am using for the advent sweaters. These were gifted to me by Ellen of The Ellen Report and I have to say I love them. I love them so much I just bought another set. I don't find the join an issue, at least not on these two pair. They are size 1.25 which is another question I got asked. That's the size I am using for the sweaters with the fingering weight Palette yarn.

I also got asked if the Audun squares are like granny squares and they are a bit. That cluster stitch that makes the flower "petals" is different-for me at least. As you can see I am a very sloppy crocheter. I really have no idea what I am doing but that never stops me from giving anything a go. It's all about the process and learning along the way for me. 

Some of said you are having trouble leaving comments. I'm having trouble leaving comments on some blogs too. The format on some blogs has changed and it's taken me a while to figure those out. I am not sure what is going on and I am sorry if there is a problem. I have looked at my settings and they haven't changed. I allow anyone to leave comments and I post them after I've read them. 

 And.......I am big Eurovision fan and fell in love with this year's winner which was the Ukranian band Kalush Orchestra. In case you missed it, here is the haunting video they just put out for their winning song which pays tribute to the women fighting the war.  I promise you it's not all rap. It just starts out that way. 
Slava Ukraini!


  1. Tiny needles for tiny sweaters!! Thanks for the info on the crocheting - the squares are so pretty.

  2. Glad the Karbonz are working well for you. Maybe I should give them another try.

  3. Sometimes, you just need some simple beans - nothing wrong with that!

  4. Blogger has been finicky lately for many people. I haven’t heard of that brand of needles.

  5. Nice to see some more details on your posts--I just assume everyone has the same info I do! lol
    The blogger thing has been a pain for me, too. I have had the same complaint from other commentors--it seems to affect others at differing times so I don't know what they are doing either!

  6. Gosh, I haven't had beans on toast for ages. Now I want some. :-) The needles look very similiar to my signature needles that I use for socks. I love them too.
    The square are great! I don't think they're sloppy at all.
    Blogger has been acting up for me too. They must be fiddling with it again. I sure hope it settles down soon so commenting isn't so difficult.
