red

Lots of knitting has been happening, but its secret. So there.

I've been trying to think about what I can do for Project Spectrum but so far the secret science project has been keeping me to purples and green. Which is ironic seeing as most of my stash is red or pink, as shown.

I'm planning on casting on a pair of red and white socks using some fyberspates yarn in "brighton rock" as soon as the secret project's done, and I've been thinking of baking red velvet cake I saw lots of references to it surfing knitter's blogs round valentines. I can't believe I'd never heard of it before, I expect Nigella to keep me informed about such things.

The knitting cogs in my mind have been doing some serious work the last few days. Apart from various battles with the secret project (it'll be a piss-easy pattern to follow, but a pain in the bottom to design!) I read about an art competition at my college, so obviously I have to submit some knitting-art. I'm not sure about the details yet, it’s not till the end of May, but think it'll involve lace and kool-aid. And possibly tofu.

i think red velvet cake if a very american thing, and very much a southern thing at that too. i have a friend who once received a vegan red velvet cake shaped like a brain for her birthday. the creator of said cake iced it with grey icing and labelled all the parts of the brain as well. it was amazing. and tasty

This won't truly have success, I think this way.
