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.
