ISO: cheap and easy

I am trudging through the re-knit of the Simple Cable Hat. To be honest, because I've knit it once, I'm just not as infatuated with the idea of it as a completed project.

As a bribe, today I purchased several skeins of Cotton-Ease for Wicked. Once I've finished the hat, I'll start in on my own easy-peasy, dirt-cheap, no-seaming-required, confidence-boosting sweater. I know, I'm late to the Wicked game, but until I saw it so prolifically and successfully done on Ravelry, I hadn't wanted to knit it. And honestly, I need a good ol' stockinette stitch project.

Since kitchen successes are more easy to come by in the Sheepish household, I share with you our family movie night treat: Snowy Trail Mix. Über-yummy.

I made that trail mix over the holidays, once you start eating it, you can't stop! :-)
I'm knitting two kiddy sweaters right now with Cotton Ease, and it's really nice to knit with. Put them aside though to work on a cami for me ;-)
Happy weekend!

Wicked is such a gorgeous pattern, I look forward to seeing your finished sweater.

The snowy trail mix looks good, I wonder if I can find pretzels in our local supermarket? Must investigate.
