Most days I run during my lunch break here are some pictures during my #runfromthefeels sessions.
On part of my lunch break I walked up to Bloomingdales Home for some espresso pods. I recently found the joy of owning a Nespresso machine and I am IN LOVE with it. Here are some photos from my lunchtime ‘Nespresso errand” in Downtown Chicago.
Sur La Table has the espresso pods for these machines too so if you’d like to check it out and do not have a Nespresso Boutique in your city head there!
Also today I learned how to make a ‘Burnt Marshmellow’ Cappuccino curteousy of Walter at the N.B.
One pod Vanilio
One pod Ciocattino
Your choice of Dairy lightly foamed
Sugar/Stevia to taste
Still are not convinced – Once you buy one of these machines your life turns into this:
I’ve coined myself and the N.B. associates as the Bloomingdales Coffee Murder Crew – it hasn’t caught on yet…. YET.
So I’ll start by saying this pattern was NOT hard or difficult or confusing. It was simple and clean and fun. I, GFK, however had a case of the butter fingers, dumb-dumbs, and tireds while trying to finish this project for the past three weeks! (THREE WEEKS? gaaaaaaawhhh!) I started the second moc-soc over and on the third time I got it right! I kept dropping stitches in the front so re-picking them up was just not a blendable option. Further, the yarn I chose, although soft and baby bootie perfect, was not very forgiving in terms of splitting. A more together fiber would make the process go way faster and smoother, especially with all those M1L in the pattern.
I’ll be knitting way more of these so friends and family keep popping those babies out and I’ll keep making sure they have moc-soc footwear.
