It is officially Project Spectrum time and the first color assignments are blue, white, and grey. I've decided to try and work the colors of Project Spectrum into things other than just knitting projects. I don't want to make this just another knititng assignment; I've got plenty of projects planned and knit alongs that I've joined that one more knitting project won't help.
So, I'm going to incorporate the color assignments into other projects and common everyday things like reading and cooking and of course I'll try and work in a little photography too.
I would guess from the title of the post and that first picture you would think that I started with the cooking part. That would be right. I've been baking cookies.
My husband's favorite cookies are oatmeal and he loves blueberries and white chocolate so I decide to combine all of these things and create the cookie recipe below. And if I get to count the tools I used, I even squeezed something grey into the project! I hope you like them as much as we do. They have quickly disappeared each time I've made them.
These cookies had an appearance last Sunday at our Superbowl gathering as Colts cookies too. They were successful there as well. I've had a couple friend's ask for the recipe, so I decided to go ahead and share it here too.
