There's nothing like having your girls sitting around your living room, knitting and gabbing to kick off the weekend. I cast on a cute little cardigan for myself. I haven't had anything major on my needles in sort of a while, much less anything for me. I have a super-soft merino wool lace weight yarn in red that has just been begging to be made into something special. It won't be practical or washable, but it should be really cute!
Oh - and I made a chocolate cake for the girls. My friend Denise brought some freshly-ground Starbucks decaf that pair oh-so-nicely with warm chocolate cake topped with melt-y chocolate chips. And yarn. It paired oh-so-nicely with all the yarn. Come to think of it, coffee pairs nicely with just about everything I can think of.
Once everyone cleared out, I did a little bit more work on that owl-y project. I thought I'd give you a sneak peek. Aren't those owls just the cutest?
And orange ric-rack! Sigh.
It's almost finished, but I can only sneak fifteen minutes in here or there on it, so I'm thinking it will probably be a couple more days before it's all done. Especially when you consider that I have homework to do these days!
But finish it, I shall. I really do love finishing things.
Daily Bliss: I did say chocolate cake, didn't I? With melted chocolate chips on top?
