This is the first time that I've had good results with that tjap, so I'm pretty happy. Also, the batching in the furnace room in the winter is a good plan here in north Georgia where the temps get pretty darned cold. I have no problem with fixing my Procion MX dyes in the microwave as long as the piece of fabric is small, but this was a rather large cut....and the wallpaper trough wasn't about to fit into the microwave!
Speaking of cold temps: we had snow today! Well, heck it is December first, right? But, this is Georgia! Oh well!!!
Remember the Noro Cashmere Island scarf I was knitting a few weeks back? Well, I finished it last Friday! WooHoo! Just in time for our cooler temps!
I love all of the colors in it......and it is sooooooooo soft! MMMMMMMMMMMM!
My latest knitting adventure is this:
This is Artyarns 5 Cashmere and the pattern is their Paneled Zigzag Scarf. I had serious doubts about whether I could knit this, but Dr Sock assured me that I was up to the task. Sure enough, she was correct, and I am well into it now! After all, she is the Dr!!
Speaking of good friends, R has shared his admiration for The New York Times' Minimalist with me. C had a board meeting in town tonight and wasn't getting out until 7, so his plan was to stop by Pollo Loco and pick up some of their delish chicken. My plan was to make Bittman's stir fried sweet potatoes, some green beans, and a spinach salad. It was delish. If you don't know about the Minimalist, try him: you'll like him!
So: Only Fifty???? I know that some of you are aware of the significance of my title, but if you are not, I am gleefully referring to the number of days until Barack Obama will be inaugurated as our next President of these United States!
YES, WE DID!!!
YES, WE DID!!!
