Feeling the Garter Love

 This Garter Tee is on Raverly .  The pattern is by Turner.  I love the simplicity.  I may make one or I may not.  How's that for certainty!  I'm knitting my 3rd Trapp but thinking ahead to the next project.  It looks so sweet and simple.  There are garter bibs that I could knit up next too.  Still in the simmering stage….
Speaking of simmering.  My friend and neighbor Sharon brought over her home grown rhubarb as a treat.  I made two loaves of rhubarb bread.  I just googled it and an easy recipe came up.  The results are pretty good.  I will bring the second loaf to work tonight.   

So simple garter and rhubarb bread are my topics here today. Do you have a garter pattern you love?  Do you have a rhubarb recipe you love?

Happy Monday

I like to just cook it down a bit with a small amount of water (and enough sugar that you can eat it)and then have it over vanilla ice cream - yum!! Also, strawberry-rubarb pie is wonderful. I'm going to have to look up the garter tee - one new baby in our family a month ago and another due in 3 weeks!

Over the weekend, I tried a new recipe (well, new to me) for a Rhubarb Cornmeal Cake, and it is delicious!

Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth is my favorite garter project.

I like my Hudson Bay Blankets too, but they are a long-term commitment. LOL

As for rhubarb ---- I have one recipe on my Pinterest page for a strawberry rhubarb crumble/cobbler. But, usually I don't "do" rhubarb.

I love the garter jacket. It would be so cute with the blanket I'm knitting.

My favorite rhubarb recipe is my mother's rhubarb pie. No strawberries or anything else, just rhubarb.

Rhubarb sauce is wonderful on toast! I also love rhubarb pie and cake. Yummy!

The sweater is darling! The Baby Surprise Jacket is all garter stitch, too.

I like the grandma's dishcloth pattern for easy baby blnkets. Working on one now in a white yarn with flecks of colors in it. There is a 3 row bprder all around with a yarn over so it looks like eyelet. About a mindless as it gets and I seem to need that lately.

Oh my goodness, that tee is ADORABLE. Baby things just rock.

You are finding way too many cute patterns! Those toys are all adorable. Oh, and thanks for the rhubarb reminder. Time to make some Rhubarb cake! At the moment I'm doing a shawl that is all garter once you get past the border.

I am intrigued by this Rhubarb bread. What's it like? Sweet?

I am going to make one more baby knit this summer for my lovely cousin Erin who is having a baby boy, but that's it.

I dream of shawls and socks.

That is just the sweetest baby knit ever. I've got to go queue that up just in case.
I second the Grandma's dishcloth vote. It's addicting.

Rhubarb? Never had any. Ever.

Here's another nod for the Grandma's favourite dishcloth pattern . I have been knitting those up for years , very popular with family and friends . I never thought about knitting a baby blanket as Lynn mentioned . I must try that sometime .
