Saturday Score!

I went early to the farm market, but I guess our winter has been too long.  There were no veggies to be had.  But I did score these:

 

Locally made goat’s milk soap.  Scent is lavender mint.  I will keep one and use the other two for little gifties.

Came home from the market and did some cleaning.  Friday night I purchased a poster frame on sale at Michael’s for half the usual cost.  Got it home and it was too large.  So I exchanged it Saturday afternoon for the correct size.  So I could finally frame this:

 

I took my mother last August to see this exhibit at the Nelson in Kansas City.  When I told my boss about it, he went to see it also and then bought me one of the exhibition posters as a birthday gift.

After exchanging the frame, I decided to stop in at the LYS and browse for a bit.  Major score! Kaffee Fassett Design Regia Sock yarn!   This is the yummy Caribbean #4261.  I have been trying not to cast it on all weekend!  But I need to finish two other pairs of socks first. I have wanted some of this since I heard about it and saw a pair of socks knit up over at Yarnstorm’s blog.

Then it was home to do some more work and practice those triad arpeggios on the bass guitar. I decided I needed some music to clean to, and listened to a praise music station for awhile.  But I was really in the mood for classical music — my final score of the day!  Sky.fm internet only classical music!  Too cool!  It is predominantly classical, but I would swear I heard some Loreena McKennitt at some point.  I think this is going to be one of my new faves.  There is nothing like a dinner of salmon fillet and broccoli spears while listening to Vivaldi. Sky.fm has many different categories of music.  This morning I listened to Contemporary Christian while I was getting ready for church.  I think I may listen to the World channel later to broaden my horizons.

Finally, I finished the diagonal cloth — the eLoomanator’s pattern — free on Ravelry.

This photo came out a little dark.  I used Sugar and Cream in the denim variegated colorway, and it is much lighter.

And I finished the Mason-Dixon Baby Kimono — voila!  I should have had this done months ago, but it sat around awaiting the finishing touches. 

The photo makes it look lavender, but it  is actually pink. Strawberry Swirl, I believe, is the color.  You know, it has been so long I can’t remember!

We have freeze warnings out for tonight — this morning when I left for church it was 39!  I am glad I did not plant any flowers yesterday.
