Sunday night — end of the weekend. As usual, I did not accomplish every task I wanted to — I am caught up in finishing The Historian. I am up to Chapter 70, so the end is in sight.
I have my laptop back and all is well. I even have a couple of photos of knitting!!
These are my olive green Hedgerow socks:
And here is an organic cotton infant sweater that I finished in October — seems forever ago:
It is a f.pea free pattern from her website. She has some wonderful free patterns for infants.
The pug and I went to the park both yesterday and today. Today it was colder and a bit windy. I think I need to knit a hat for myself!
This morning when I was getting set up on the platform I noticed a tupperware container with a pair of men’s socks in it on my music stand. I laughed out loud. One of the worship leaders loves hummus, so I make it for him occasionally and I told him a few weeks ago that if he wanted more, he needed to bring me a container because I am running low on containers and can not keep giving them away. And he had admired my Hedgerow socks, so I said if he would give me his foot length, I might knit him a pair of wool hunting socks for next hunting season. Hence, the pair of men’s socks in the tupperware. LOL. The drummer asked me what I would do if I came next Sunday and the entire team left me containers with socks. I replied that I guessed I would be very busy for awhile. Too funny!
When we were at the park today, the wind kept blowing dry leaves across the path, and the pug would dart after a leaf and grab it up in her mouth and carry it a bit until she had another leaf to go after. It was quite comical.
After our walk I started a big pot of lentil vegetable soup and roasted some root vegetables — carrots, parsnips, sweet potatoes and butternut squash. I watched an episode of Barefoot Contessa where she roasted the vegetables and then made a pureed roasted vegetable soup with a portion of the veggies. It sounded very good, so I decided to roast some veggies for soup later this week. I love roasted vegetables. They have so much more flavor than any other way I fix them. I also watched an episode of Giada’s show where she coated broccoli and cauliflower florets with egg and parmesan cheese, then fried them in olive oil and put them over fresh baby spinach with a vinaigrette for a salad. Looked absolutely yummy!!
Well, back to The Historian. Need to finish it so I can get back to my knitting. Still have to finish red/white dishcloth 2.
