Marvel-ous

Good morning! It feels like a Monday today, the beginning of a new week. As it turns out, it's Tuesday. Oh well. Today Spike and I are venturing to the post office and the store through some freshly fallen snow.

I have a quick confession - I bought a loaf of bread yesterday. One of my goals for 2008 was to begin making our bread. I planned for sandwiches for lunch this week and ran out of time yesterday, so I bought ome store bread that doesn't have high fructose corn syrup. I'm insulted by HFCS in my bread!

Of course, there was HFCS in the hamburger buns we ate Sunday and Monday night. I can't win every battle, I guess.

I do have a finished object to report! I made a garter stitch scarf out of a yarn called Marvel that I got at Jo-Ann's.

Yarn: Marvel, 100% wool thick and thin yarn
Needles: Size US 17
Pattern: garter stitch, 13 stitches wide, using the whole skein

This is the same yarn and pattern that I used to make a scarf for myself last year. That post is here.
