Oops!  What happened to Friday? The weekend just flew by it was so busy. We had a family business obligation on Friday and then had some friends/family over on Saturday to be my guinea pigs for Pho and then more family on Sunday and finally the Superbowl. Whew! It makes me tired all over again just writing it out.

I’m a little bummed I forgot to take a picture of a bowl of Pho because it was a huge success! I was a little worried it wouldn’t turn out half as good as my moms because I left out a lot of the measurements when I wrote down the recipe as she was teaching me. I guess what she always says is true, “Asians don’t measure, they put in however much they need to make it taste right.”

I did manage to wind down the weekend by catching the end of the Law and Order: SVU marathon and working on an Amigurumi. This one is from the book Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts! Amigurumi. I love ami’s they take shape so quickly, usually only use one type of stitch and lets me use up leftover yarn from other projects! As you can see a few hours of work produced the head, body and 3 limbs of the bear. Just one more leg, two ears and the nose left and he’s finished!

Sometimes I’m too strong for my own good. I managed to break my hook. Granted it was plastic and bend-y, but still. I really wanted to finish this guy so I used a little super glue and duct tape. I’m sure my gauge is a bit off so it’s a good thing it broke at the start of one leg. the other leg will be about the same size. This means no more plastic hooks for me. Metal or wooden or nothing at all. It’s a shame because I just got this one too.
