|My much younger self|
Each course was better than the one before, and the wines were perfectly paired. We had a lovely evening!
LouAnn, who's birthday was Monday, will be joining my sister, mother and I for brunch this Sunday, so we can extend both our birthdays. We both believe in the birthday week, and maybe longer!
I haven't been weaving a bit, but continue my knitting obsession. I've started a shawl, based on the one I finished recently in turquoise hand-dyed yarn. It was from KnitWear, my favorite knitting magazine, and had a lace border incorporated as you knit. I loved it, but thought it would be cool to use a more complex lace design. I perused my many, many lace knitting books, and found a pattern I liked. I'm using Noro Lace, which is cotton, wool, rayon and cashmere, in a very vibrant colorway. I'm really enjoying it! And it's small enough, for now, to fit into a purse and go places with me.
I have most of next week off, so I hope I'll find time for a loom or two, but right now, knitting is what I want! That and British murder mysteries, a treat for aching feet that just want to sit still for a while.
I hope you're treating yourself, too! Happy weaving!
