Monthly Round UP

June 2021 Round-up

I cannot believe another month is over and it’s time to post a monthly round-up! As quickly as June went by, I got a bunch of knitting done so I have a lot of share with you today on the knitting blog 🙂

Finished Objects

Ripple Crop Top

This is like a dream come true project for me! I had been thinking about knitting a faded Ripple Crop Top for a while now. It took me a little while to collect the perfect yarns.

I’m so pleased with how the colours came together. This was one of my first fades and I’m pretty happy with it.

This one is definitely getting a stand-alone FO spotlight post so there will be more details there about how I did the fade, what I would change, and the few modifications I made from the original design.

Pattern: Ripple Crop Top by Jessie Maed (Ravelry link)

Yarn: Dragon Hoard Yarn, Bar à Tricot, Plank & Stella

Espresso Machine Cross Stitch

It’s done! Finally. I’ve been working on this project since December, my stitching mojo ran out in the early part of 2021. Thankfully it returned and I chugged through the last bit of this project in late May to early June.

I’m really holding myself to a one WIP policy with cross stitch so I don’t get overwhelmed and it works to motivate me to finish a project so I can move on to the next one.

Now I just need to get around to soaking and framing them LOL this one went right onto the stack. I may tackle that after we move though so I can frame and hang in our new house!

Pattern: Vintage Espresso Machine by Happy Sloth

Super Bulky Scrap Blanket

Finished right on time to make it into the FO section! I completed the final triangle in the evening on June 29. This blanket used up so much of the leftover bits of super bulky, worsted and bulky yarn I had in my stash. Any full skeins that are left are getting donated and the remaining worsted acrylic is becoming cat toys.

I debated if I was going to put the border on this blanket, but ultimately I decided not to to keep the scrappy patchwork vibe, also because I just wanted to finish 😉 So happy to check this project off the “knit before moving” list.

Pattern: Knit Triangles Hexagon Blanket from Yarnspirations

Works in Progress

Sharks

My current cross stitch project is a couple of sharks, the second one is a hammer head. I’m so close to being finished the first shark, after having to rip out a whole section because I counted wrong…

Pattern: Sharks from DMC

Twilight Time

So, my plan for June and July was to focus on finishing up projects and using up yarn before we move on July 31. But….I really couldn’t resist this pattern and I had just the right amount of yarn left from my Ripple Crop Top.

I struggled hard with the first repeat of the lace, I’m not really a lace fan. But now that I’ve got it down it’s going much better and I think I’ll be done by the weekend.

I’m worried the speckle and the lace is a bit busy…but I think when it’s worn you won’t really be able to tell.

Pattern: Twilight Time by The Marvelous Mrs. Maker

Yarn: Dragon Hoard Yarn, Bar à Tricot, Plank & Stella

I have a half-done pair of socks as well, but I didn’t work on them at all in June if you can believe it. Knitty Natty’s Sock Week make-a-long is coming up so I think I may try and finish sock #2.

Stegosaurus

I thought the espresso machine cross stitch project was my oldest WIP until I found this gal when I was cleaning out my yarn preparing for our moving day. She had all her pieces ready to go just needed to be stuffed!

She had a buddy, a plesiosaur, but he was further from being finished and it’s a lot of work to stuff and seam. My heart just wasn’t in it so I made the choice to let him go.

So far, I’ve stuffed and sewn together her body and started sewing on the armour plates last weekend. I’m planning on finished her up this weekend.

She definitely needs a name – taking suggestions in the comments!

Reads

I’ve been reading the Shadow and Bone series I finished book one and have started book two. I wasn’t super sure as I was reading book one if I was going to continue reading them, but then I liked the direction the story took and I started book two, Siege and Storm, right away.

I’ve also been reading The Haunting of Alma Fielding. It’s not nearly as exciting as its name leads you to believe. It’s not a bad book, actually I’ve kind of enjoyed it so far it’s just not as page-turn-y as I anitipcated. I keep debating abandoning it, but it’s got me curious on how the whole thing plays out, and I’m over halfway done, so I’m going to finish it.

Knitflix

Not much to report for the Knitflix section this month, I’m watching pretty much the same things that I was watching last month!

Thanks for checking in on my knitting adventures – stay tuned for the FO Spotlight posts for more info on my Ripple Crop Top and Scrappy Blanket.

Monthly Round UP

May 2021 Round-up (and a life update!)

Hi everyone! It’s been a little while since I posted on the blog. I didn’t have much of an April 2021 round up as I only worked on one project for all of April…if you can believe it! So there wasn’t much to talk about.

But May was a little different and I have a bunch of FOs and WIPs to share with you.

Another reason I skipped April, is because it was a pretty busy month for us because we were house hunting! So we spent our weekends in April attending viewings out of town as the city we’re moving to is about an hour away.

We found the perfect little townhome and we’re moving at the end of July 🙂 We have quite a bit of packing to do of course, and that includes packing up (and de-stashing) some of my yarn. I might write a post about my process of organizing and packing my stash, would you be interested? Let me know in the comments!

Please note some of the links in this blog are to Ravelry, links that direct to Ravelry are noted with “Rav link”.

Finished Objects

Mom’s birthday sweater

Pattern: Pure Comfort Cardigan a FREE pattern from Biscotte Yarns

Yarn: Berroco Vintage DK in Oats

Before getting into the details, I have to say the fact this pattern is free is amazing! I didn’t use Biscotte Pure DK for this project, but I have some of their sock yarn and it’s beautiful so I’m sure the Pure DK is the same.

As the title implies I made this sweater for my mom for her birthday, I knit a lot for mom she’s very knit-worthy! In fact I’ve written a whole post with the projects I’ve knit for her 🙂

This sweater was a little late for mom’s birthday…her birthday is April 20th and she still doesn’t have it yet – but it is finished! This was an enjoyable knit, but oh man did I underestimate how long that applied fisherman’s rib collar would take.

One (heel-less) sock

Pattern: Plain old vanilla with an afterthought heel (check out my afterthought heel post)

Yarn: Pattons Kroy sock yarn

I guess this is technically a WIP as it’s not even a full pair being heel-less and all. But I need to round out the FO section a little LOL!

I’ve got a nice green mini set aside to do the heels and I’m making them shorties. The last pair of shorties I made came out a bit longer than I had wanted, so I’m making this pair even shorter. 80 rounds instead of the 94 rounds I did on my last pair.

You can see that pair of socks here (Rav link).

Works in Progress

Cross stitch

I haven’t been cross stitching lately, but my cross stitch mojo came back this month and I’ve been working away on my Vintage Expresso Machine designed by Happy Sloth Patterns.

There’s also matching vintage coffee grinder and stand mixer patterns, I may need to complete the set!

I have my next two cross stitch patterns lined up and my “to stitch” list is growing recently as my cross stitch motivation has returned so I definitely want to finish this project up soon. I’m aiming to be done by the weekend I just have a little bit more to go.

Here’s a sneak peek of the floss for my next project, any guesses what it is?

Cozy memories blanket

Pattern: The Coziest Memory by Kemper Wray (Rav link)

I don’t write about my cozy memories blanket in every round-up post because this is a long-term WIP. I’ve been working on it since August 2019 and I’m not half-way through yet so I anticipate it’s going to take me until 2023 to finish.

But I reached a pretty big milestone this month: square #100!! 140 squares will be halfway and I expect to make it to that point this year.

Scrappy triangle hexagon blanket

Pattern: Bernat Knit Triangles Hexagon Blanket from Yarnspirations (free pattern alert!)

I’ve been watching Bernadette McLaughlin’s podcast (you should check her out!) and she’s been working on a couple of blankets, well that got me in the mood to knit a blanket.

Of course I don’t want to buy any new yarn until after we move, but I also had the challenge of what to do with all the super bulky bits I have in my stash. I didn’t really want to take them with us, but I also didn’t want them to go to waste.

I was sifting through pattern options when I came across this free pattern from Yarnspirations and it gave me the idea to make it a scrappy blanket with my super bulky left overs and some worsted and bulky weight yarns held together.

The plan is a blanket so hideous it’s cute!

Ripple crop top

Pattern: Ripple Crop Top by Jessie Maed (Rav link)

Yarn: Dragon Hoard Yarn, Velaris; Bar à Tricot, Blue Horizon; Plank & Stella, The Belcher Family

This is a dream project for me and I’m so happy to have finally cast it on! I started with the Plank & Stella yarn and was on the lookout to find two other yarns to make a nice fade.

I just have the back panel and the sleeves to go and I’m pretty happy with how it’s turning out. I don’t love the fit of my first Ripple Crop Top (Rav link) because I knit it in a different needle size and knit quite a few sizes up.

I didn’t get gauge for this one either, but it seems to be turning out much better!

I’ve started posting a monthly round-up video on TikTok so if you’re on top of the TikTok trend head over there and follow me to see those videos and more! I am definitely not a TikTok superstar, but I have a lot of fun making videos.

Reads of Steele

Here are the books I’ve been reading/read in May! Links are to Good Reads.

I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness

How to Be Less Stupid About Race: On Racism, White Supremacy, and the Racial Divide – I didn’t finish this one and it had to go back to the library so you’ll probably see it on the Reads of Steele list again!

A Court of Silver Flames – if you’ve seen the recent rise in popularity of the A Court of Thorns and Roses series in the knitting community, you can blame Kate of Red Door Fibre Studio who started reading it and inspired a trend! This is the fifth book in the series and now I’ll have to wait until the next one.

Knitflix

Here’s a quick list of the shows I’m watching right now (or did watch in May). All of them are re-watches as I haven’t been in the mood to start anything new. Although the last time I watched Sailor Moon I was a child so it feels familiar and new at the same time!

Deathnote

Fairy Tail

Angel

Schitt’s Creek

Sailor Moon

Thanks for checking in on my knitting adventures 🙂 Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram to see my daily updates!

Monthly Round UP

February 2021 Round Up Knitting Blog

So look, I know February is a short month but February 2021 has absolutely FLOWN by. In this month’s knitting round up blog post I have some new WIPs to share with you, an FO sneak peek and some new yarn.

And as usual I’ll be sharing the books, knitflixes and podcasts I’ve been enjoying.

Works in Progress

Cozy Memories Blanket

I’ve been working on my cozy memories blanket this month and now that it’s bigger I can get a better idea of how many squares I need. And good news it’s 2 less rows across and up than I thought so I’m going from needing 340 squares to 270.

Espresso Cross Stitch

I started cross stitching in the Fall of 2020, but I haven’t done any for the past month or so. I picked up my vintage espresso cross stitch over the weekend and made some progress. I’m hoping if I keep working on it here and there I can finish it up next month and start something new.

With my stitching I’m being more mindful about acquiring new supplies and patterns and only working on one project at a time so it doesn’t get out of hand like my knitting and yarn obsession!

Shag Carpet Shorties

So if you’ve read this blog post, you know how much I love this sock design by Woolfield.

I have been dreaming of hot pink Shag Carpet Shorties since I bought this yarn during the Great Toronto Yarn Hop last summer. This is Artfil Belle in the colour Bubblegum and I’m holding it double to make these socks.

These will be a March FO for sure!

Finished Objects

I am so excited to report that I completed my For Fox Sake sweater in February. I started this sweater back in October 2020.

It is so comfy cozy and I’m really happy with the fit. the sleeves are my favourite part they just fit perfectly! This has become my go-to sweater to pull on for video meetings for work.

I did mess up the colourwork a bit and there are some parts where my floats are too tight and it’s pulling…to be honest it does bother me a little, but I don’t think it’s really noticeable. And for my first time doing stranded colourwork with more than two colours I think it turned out really well.

I used Berroco Vintage DK for this sweater which is an acrylic and wool blend and I will definitely use this yarn again. It is so soft and comfortable to wear and it was nice to work with.

I also finished a new design this month! This cute headband is perfect for scraps of DK weight yarn. This will be a free pdf download in March through Ravelry so make sure you keep an eye out on Instagram for information about that release.

Upcoming Knits of Steele Pattern Releases

Brigand comes out on Friday February 26th on Ravelry. There will be a discount code for release so make sure you follow me on Instagram so you don’t miss it.

This is a super fun colourwork knit and it’s great for beginner knitters as a first colourwork project! I’m going to be posting a blog with tips for knitting colourwork the first week of March.

New Yarn

I have two new skeins of yarn this month, and this might be it for a while (other than maybe one more order).

I was worried about running out of yarn for my Shag Carpet Shorties so I ordered another skein of Artfil Belle in Bubblegum and I needed one more colour for a project.

So I picked up these two skeins of yarn from The Knitting Loft and my picked up I mean ordered online and had them delivered LOL

I won’t need any more Bubblegum for my socks, or if I do it will just be the tiniest bit, so this skein of Bubblegum is going to go on to become a pair of colourwork socks with some other Artfil Belle that I have on hand.

And here is the complete fade I’ve put together for my faded Ripple Crop Top that I am planning to knit in the next couple months. More on this project and these yarns to come!

Reads of Steele and Knitflix

Spinning Silver

I enjoyed this book for the most part, it took me much longer to read than I expected it to. I was really into the story at the beginning, for the first half I’d say then I struggled with staying engaged in the middle until right towards the end it grabbed my interest again.

Chosen

I was reading this book in January, but I had to return it to the library before I could finish it. I only got about a third of the way through. I’m nearly done now and will have it finished by the end of February.

This book takes place in the same universe as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the Buffyverse as fans call it, and I really enjoy it for that reason the little Easter eggs and crossovers to the main series are so fun!

Lord of the Rings trilogy

Over the course of February Matt and I have been working our way through the Lord of the Rings movies, for the hundreth time they are a favourite in our household.

This re-watch is giving me so much knitting inspiration, there are so many beautiful textiles and patterns in the costumes. I had a brief moment of trying to do a fancy braided hairstyle, but it quickly ended in a huge mess of tangles so I’ll stick to keeping my Lord of the Rings style appreciation in my knitting.

And in social media news I posted my first Instagram Reel! And my first Tiktok. I had wanted to try the reels feature for a while, but Instagram just kept giving me error messages. Well I recently got a new phone so I gave it another try and it worked. I’m really excited to try out these new channels to share my knitting adventures and some helpful tips and tricks for you all as well.

Monthly Round UP

January 2021 Round Up

Hi everyone! We made through the first month of 2021. I know this round up post is coming a little bit late, but I was really focusing on the tips for knitting your first sweater post and it was a beast!

That post ended up being so much longer than I originally planned, but I really hope that anyone who wants to knit their first sweater will find it useful.

January 2021 works in progress

I’m still working away on my For Fox Sake. I knit the sleeves this month, sometimes I like to do my sleeves first! I’m so ready to take on the rest of the body. Mindless stockinette is my go-to for knitting while reading and I have been doing a lot of that lately!

I’ve also been making progress on this baby blanket, I was trying to work on it for 30 minutes a day this month. I’ve been slacking recently, but I just need to do two more pattern repeats.

In February I’m setting a goal to knit a row a day and hopefully I’ll be finished by the end of the month.

January Finished Objects

I was so close to not having any Fos this month, but I finished my vampire vibes socks on January 31! I started these on Halloween and this has been my other go-to project lately for knitting and reading.

There were new cast ons in January!

Unless you count….

New design sneak peek

I have been working on a colourwork hat design for the past couple months! This is the Brigand hat. It uses worsted weight yarn and has a cozy double brim.

There are instructions for three sizes baby/toddler, child, and adult. By the time this is posted hopefully this pattern will be in testing. Keep an eye out for this pattern release sometime in February!!

New yarn!

I did some shopping this month!!! I don’t want to go too wild with buying yarn this year, however, I want to buy more yarn this year, specifically buying form indie dyers and local yarn stores.

Breaking Yarn

I won a gift card for Breaking Yarn from a knit-a-long hosted by Knitty Natty. Definitely go give Breaking Yarn a follow on Instagram. And the dyer just started a new podcast, so you should check that out too.

I picked up a skein of worsted and a sock set (showing significant restraint might I add because sooo many beautiful colours). As soon as I saw this yellow I knew I had to have it. It’s going to be a hat, I’m thinking something with cables.

Dragon Hoard Yarn

I am obsessed with the A Court of Thorns and Roses book series by Sarah J. Maas (more on that below) and Dragon Hoard yarn has a Sarah J. Maas inspired collection.

This is Valeris and it’s one of the mystery colourways from January. As you can see it’s beautiful, I will definitely be ordering more yarn from Dragon Hoard Yarn in the future (like maybe I already have some in a cart lol).

Shirley Brian Yarns

When I saw this this adorable knitasaurus bag from Shirley Brian Yarns I could not resist! I love a good dinosaur pun and while I was there I had to buy some yarn. This is Aperol Spritz on the slub base. I have been planning a faded sweater using slub yarn and this just fit right into my colour scheme I had to have it.

Reads of Steele

I have been reading a ton lately. At the end of December I read the whole A Court of Thorns and Roses series and it really brought back my love of reading. Here are all the books I’ve read this month (cheating a bit to include some I read at the end of December).

This is more books than I’ve read in the last two years! I used to love reading as a kid I devoured books, but lately reading didn’t hold much interest for me, which made me sad. I’m so happy to have my love of books back!

What’s my secret to knitting and reading? Ebooks! I read ebooks on my tablet propped up on a stand so it’s hands free, I just need to lift a hand every now and then to flip the page.

Knitflix

I was getting so bored and running out of things to watch, but I’ve re-discovered an old favourite and started some new shows with Matt.

  • Gilmore Girls – I started a re-watch of the series and it’s so nice to remember how much I love it. The early seasons are so fun! I’m halfway through season 3 now.
  • My Hero Academia – Matt and I were in need of a new show so he put this on the other night, he’s seen it before, and I was surprised by how much I got into it.
  • Marvel movies – we’ve been watching a lot of Marvel and other superhero movies lately. It’s a phase!
  • Wandavision – and of course with all the Marvel we’ve been watching we had to start this new Disney+ original

Thanks for reading the January round up! And as always you can follow my day-to-day knitting adventures on Instagram. I’d love to connect with you 🙂

FO Spotlight Free Patterns Monthly Round UP

November 2020 Round-up

I cannot believe that November is over and it’s already time for another monthly round-up! The monthly round-up post is my opportunity to share with you what I’m knitting, my works in progress, my knit finished objects, knitting patterns I’m working on and MORE.

In this edition: my woeful neglected WIPs, a FREE hat pattern and my new crafting obsession…let’s dive in!

Current Knitting Projects

For Fox Sake Sweater

I wrote about this knit colourwork sweater in my October Round-up, and I had about 20 rows left in the yoke. Now I have maybe 5-7 rows left. I haven’t worked on it for the past few weeks, but I am done the foxes!

A recent photo of my For Fox Sake when I finished the foxes!

This is going to be my last sweater of 2020, if I finish it this year at all and it’s looking very possible that I won’t. But once I get through the yoke and the sleeve separation my pace should pick up quite a bit.

Vampire Vibes Socks

For a second I thought For Fox Sake was my only WIP, but I am also working on a pair of knit socks. These were my Halloween Cast-on if such a thing exists. I’m using KnitPicks Felici in the colour Vampire Vibes.

In my last post I wrote about my experience with my first afterthought heel and I’m going to do another afterthought heel on this pair.

I haven’t knit much on them, I’m mostly pulling out this project for knitting during movie night.

Coziest Memory Blanket

I mean…this a a forever WIP and I promise I won’t include it in every monthly round-up, but I do want to chat a bit about my scrappy mitered square blanket. I started this blanket in August of 2019 and in August of this year I realized that I was barely 10% through.

Scrappy Sunday mornings are becoming my favourite new habit!

A few weeks back I set a goal of doing 2 at least squares every Sunday and I’ve been pretty good so far at keeping that up. If I manage to stick to this goal all the way through the end of December I’ll be 20% done when 2020 ends!

Finished Objects AKA Mini-FO Spotlight

Bear Lak Cowl

The honour of being the only Knits of Steele FO for November 2020 goes to the Bear Lake Cowl (Ravelry link) by Kacey Herlihy. This was a test knit, when I saw Kacey post the testing call I fell in love with this pretty cowl. And it came at the perfect time in my cowl/DK obession!

I’ve been wearing not only my Bear Lake Cowl but all of my knit cowls recently when cozying up at home!

I used KnitPicks Capra for this project. It was my first time using this yarn and definitely not the last. It is so cozy and warm, the squish factor is unreal.

New (FREE) Knits of Steele Design

I released a new free knitting pattern a couple weeks ago! Hazelnut Latte is a simple knit hat is a perfect wardrobe staple for Fall or Winter. I wrote about it on the blog when it was released, you can check that out here.

And you can download your free copy of Hazelnut Latte from my Ravelry store!

Other hobbies

Part of the reason that my WIPs have been so neglected in November is that I’ve been really enjoying some other hobbies outside of knitting this month.

I did A LOT of knitting in the first three quarters of 2020 and I’m not losing my mojo by any means, but I have taken some time to think about slowing down in the amount of projects I’m knitting. Running out of space in my closet…

Cross stich

Near the end of October I thought that I might enjoy Cross Stitch so I purchased some beginner friendly kits and my journey began. And I love it! Look out knitting…just kidding, knitting will always be my love/obsession but it’s nice to have some variation in crafts.

My first completed cross stitch. So proud of my little sour lemon – don’t look at the back 😉

I haven’t posted much about my cross stitching other than an Instagram story here and there when I’m popping in to give updates. I don’t intend for this to become a cross stitch blog LOL. But I do think I will write a post in the near future about getting started with cross stitch, what my experience was like and some tips for beginners, from a beginner.

I’m approaching my cross stitch journey way differently than my journey with knitting and I don’t think cross stitch will ever reach the same level for me as knitting has what with this blog and my Instagram account.

And that’s exactly how I want it! Posting about my knitting hasn’t taken away my love for it, but it has made that love different and I view cross stitch as a bit of an escape from that.

Gaming

Like many people I got really into Animal Crossing new Horizons during lockdown when it came out earlier this year. But over the past couple months my enthusiasm for the game was waning. And while I didn’t feel like I wanted to play, I was sad about that because it’s such a cute game and I was having a lot of fun.

In November I’m happy to say that my Animal Crossing motivation was back and I’ve had a lot of fun improving my island (hello five stars!) and making plans for cute little areas I want to create in the future.

Pikman

If you’re not familiar with Pikman it involves cute little creatures called, well Pikman! I had one of these games for my Nintendo DS and Matt surprised me with the new one for the Switch.

I just started so I’m not very far along, but this game is also going to be keeping me entertained when I’m not knitting!

Bugsnax

This game is the reason I have played on the new Playstation more than Matt has! It’s so cute.

You can check out the trailer here.

One of the reasons I am loving this game is the world is so whimsical and cute it’s nice to escape reality for a bit. And it’s like Pokemon, but sometimes I find Pokemon overwhelming, in Bugsnax it seems really do-able to actually catch all the critters.

Knitflix

This blog is already loooong enough so I’m going to try and keep the knitflix section short! Here are the shows, movies, podcasts I’ve been enjoying while I work on my knitting projects.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

If you have been following me on Instagram than you know that Buffy is my favourite show. At the beginning of lockdown I started a re-watch and it has taken me until now to finish it.

This was my first time watching the series beginning to end since I first watched it back in 2015. When Buffy aired I was too young for it and although I caught some of the later episodes on cable when I was older I didn’t really follow the series.

I’m a bit of a collector and I have way more Buffy stuff than I realized. When I dug out props for this photo I had totally forgotten about that colouring book!

Now that I’m finished the series I’m going on to read the comics which pick up where the show left off! And if I can get my hands on it, I’ll re-watch Angel which is a spinoff show.

Big Mouth

Matt and I love adult animation and after watching Archer a dozen times and finishing Rick & Morty we needed something new. With the 4th season of Big Mouth coming this week we figured it was a great time to get into this show.

This show is SUUUUUPER for adults only – very R rated and if a lot of sexual content is going to make you uncomfy I would avoid it. That being said it is hilarious and has had us laughing out loud and cringing all at the same time.

Wine and Crime Podcast

I used to be really into the podcast Wine & Crime (this is another one with graphic content for adults only), but with so many podcasts to keep up with, and not having a commute in 2020 I’ve fallen behind on episodes. Near the end of November I started listening again and now I’m working towards getting all caught up.

I really love the format of this podcast compared to other true crime shows, it’s broken down into segments with each host tackling the background of their topic or a case. And they have a wine pairing for every show!

That’s a wrap on November 2020! I’m not sure how this post got so long when I feel like I’ve hardly done any knitting…I hope you enjoyed it. Please share with me in the comments what you’ve been up to this month.

What’s coming up in December….I mean who knows, but I think I can say that the December Round-up will include a few words about chunky knits, a new cross stitch project or two, some Christmas knitflixes and maybe even an FO!

OH and my Christmas Eve cast-on because I already have that planned! Maybe I’ll even share some of my favourite cookie recipes here on the blog.
