Fat Tuesday and 10 Stitches

Fat Tuesday - better known as Mardi Gras has begun.

There are Paczki and then there are the Best Paczki. The small grocery store by us bakes the best.

Every year some people pre -order two weeks prior to the date and some of us just take our chances and go on the actual day. Baking begins during the night before, for the hundreds of filled little doughnuts that will be sold here on Fat Tuesday. Over a dozen different varietys, with a choice of glazed, powdered, or frosted will be offered. There is a special location in the store set up for distribution and we all wait patiently for our turn. There is rack after rack filled with tasty delights. As you can see, I've got my favorites. Now time for a hot cuppa coffee and a fresh Paczki and on to some knitting.
I've added a few more rows to the 10 stitch blanket. I'm thinking the kettle dyed orange wool top will be the next spindle spun yarn to be added to the blanket. Still enjoying each new shade as it joins the rest of the spiral.
