A beauty of a day!
It has been a glorious weekend so far too. We did lots of yard work yesterday. Alright, hubby did some yard work yesterday and I sat on the deck and read my latest book: "The Mermaid Chair" by Sue Monk Kidd. An interesting book.
I have been knitting away on a cotton tank for me in a soft mauve/pink. I liked the yarn when I picked it out last year and have tried other projects with it and frogged them, so I hope this one sticks. So far I have this:
The pattern is from the latest book by The Yarn Girls ... beyond basics or something like that. I decided to make the front and the back at the same time. This way once I finish one side, then I won't feel like have to start from the beginning again. In theory it sounds good. I did put it down last night to give my hands a break. I felt like they were cramping up, so I dug out some stash and starting working on a granny ripple blanket for my upcoming charity meeting. The blanket will go fast and I will get back to the tank. I figured the soonest I'll be wearing it is June, so I have plenty of time.
Two days ago I went out to my garden and was able to have these tasty numbers for the first time since I planted them three years ago!
I quickly cut them up and steamed them with a little butter. They were a tasty after school snack for me!
