Silky petals, Coconut macaroons

My petals are coming along. I’m thinking of going with five petals per flower. Toying with the idea of making bigger petals as well. The pattern is easy which let’s me listen to podcasts while knitting.

I made my first coconut macaroons in Taiwan. Our little oven has the option of just turning the top or bottom heat on so I was able to get the tops crispy. It’s starting to get hot here so these will make a great summer treat.

New knitting project and a screenprint bag

Oh the joy of a new knitting project! I’m creating an art installation piece to hang over our loft railing.

This is a lotus flower petal. I’ll be making as many as I can and then assembling them into flowers. I wrote a pattern based on several I found on Ravelry. Most likely I’ll make I-cord out of green yarn for the stems connecting them together.

I got to take a screenprint workshop this week and made this print featuring Taiwanese food.

It’s been years since I last screenprinted. Thank you My Taiwan and In Blooom-it was fun!
