Daisy Cookies

I went to the bakery again yesterday and I posted a picture of the cookies I bought. I can't seem to resist these cookies. I don't know if it's the taste, the appearance or what. I have even tried my hand at decorating cookies and that came out ok, but not great, and the last batch of cookies I made I underbaked, so they tasted doughy and were not good at all. They were kind of pretty, though, and I had a great time cutting them out and decorating them. I just have to get the baking time down next time.

I've been knitting a vest pattern that I got from Patternworks. The pattern seems really easy so far. Just stockinette stitch mostly. I'm working on the back right now and it's really easy. Just 4 rows of garter stitch and then you start the stockinette stitch until it's as long as the pattern says or as long as you want it.

While making that, I took a short detour and made some House Helper cloths using this pattern. I forgot to make a picture of the dishcloths that I made, but I will take one this weekend and post it.
