I finally got some time to make cookies again! Sorry for missing the last two Cookie Fridays. I must confess I strapped the baby into his high chair and gave him not exactly healthy baby food to keep him appeased while I baked. Nilla wafers RULE.

I LOVE this rendition of the Home Is Where The Controller Is by SuzyCat:
I’m a little ashamed that I didn’t think of this one!
Okie dokie, so I have gotten to a point of frustration with the knitting. I love the way the stockinette stitch looks, all those little parallel Vs really appeal to my OCD side.

Misty over at Rarest Generic made one for her old roommate for Christmas. It tickles me to think of people’s loved ones getting this on Christmas morning.
