Meanwhile, I've been busy both at home and in the city. While spending the weekend in Atlanta, we had a very memorable dinner at Veni Vidi Vici with our condo friends. MMMMMM! The chef was offering a special dinner with a truffles theme, in memory of his Italian mentor who had died suddenly a month ago. The food was fantastic, the service was excellent, and our companions were animated, enthusiastic and as interesting as ever! On Sunday we attended one of the four baby showers being given in honor of our daughter, son-in-law and first grandbaby. This was a family shower, given by our son-in-law's family, and it was very nice and lots of fun. I think the baby's nursery must be about full now, with all of the wonderful items an infant and its parents could need or possibly desire.
I am working on several pieces at home: one large one on silk crepe de chine, and two smaller ones on cotton canvas. I am drawn to the latter right now, as the fabric has been dyed and overdyed in delicious shades of orange, rust, and blue. I've been printing and discharging on this surface, and the results are exciting to me.
I finished knitting an adorable striped hat for the baby (if it's a boy) and will begin a similar one for the baby (if it's a girl). I've completed two pairs of bootees: one for each gender. Boy, I wish I could post pictures! Now I've started on a sweater for the baby.....it is in an apple/sagey green using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino. I think you can see a little bit of it here. Yep, that works! Anyway, I am having fun knitting in the evenings....even if our Braves did lose to the Giants. I'm sad to see Bobby Cox leave........oh well!
Time to go..........I have a class in a half hour!
