Iced coffee, FOs, and ripple progress
Saw this recipe on the back of an instant coffee bottle today and just had to try it.
5-6 cups boiling water
1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 Tbsp. instant coffee
Melt the condensed milk in the boiling water and add the instant coffee. Cool and serve over ice. Yum! The recipe also called for 12 whole cloves but I'm not that big a fan of cloves. I'd add cinnamon or even flavored syrups to change up the flavor but it's great as is.
I finished these socks for the Sock A Month 3 KAL with 10 minutes to spare. Talk about stress! This is one instance where knitting wasn't relaxing for me. I wore them to bed that night.
I think I'm about done with this ripple. Currently it is 62" in diameter and I'm thinking that around 70" will be good enough. As it is, it covers me while I'm in the recliner watching TV. As soon as I finish this one I will concentrate on getting the black/blue one done. I only have a few rounds of that one to go as well then I have two more waiting in the wings. Whew! I'm tired just thinking of all the work ahead of me.
