Get your Fat Tuesday on!

I had good intentions. My box of Cafe Du Monde beignet mix was in the pantry hollering "come on fool! It's N'awlins day if ever there was one".  But sleep and the recollection of leftover waffle batter in the fridge won out. So sue me.

To staunch my feelings of remorse/regret for not starting Fat Tuesday in the most appropriate manner, I came up with a Plan B. Since Fat Tuesday is all about overindulgence and gluttony, what better thing for a crafter to do than start ANOTHER project?!?!  Never mind that I have a sock and a half in my bag, a gorgeous winter sweater off needles waiting to be seamed up, multiple scarves and gloves on needles tucked into cabinets, the stalled pile of hexipuffs, baby blankets waiting impatiently, sewing projects out of sight out of mind, annnnnd the biggie:  the THIRD Breaking Bad sweater still on needles. All of that is irrelevant. 


What:  Achilles HeAl. Free on Knitty.com. Interesting heal construction that caught my eye. 

With:  Claudia Hand Painted Yarns in the appropriate colorway of, duh!, Mardis Gras. 

Laissez les bons temps rouler!


  1. Perfect way to spend the day!

  2. Can everyday be Fat Tuesday? We knitters would be in trouble for sure! Love that Mardi Gras colorway.
