It's been a vanilla kind of weekend around here.
Bringing the good woolens - the tried and true sweaters out of hibernation. I loved making this sweater 15 years ago and I STILL look forward to wearing it.
'Bella's Mittens; by Marielle Henault - brilliant - get over there - www.subliminalrabbit.com. These lovelies were inspired by mittens worn in the movie "Twilight" by Kristen Stewart. I cannot even pretend that I am interested or following that phenomena, but I was swept away by the beauty and function of this pattern. I'm using Cascade's Ecological Wool, size 8 dpns. Absolutely LOVE these mittens!
Getting ready for the Turkey day. I'm going to brine the bird this year. If anyone out there has suggestions -I am all ears! In the spirit of the holidays I took one small piece out today - my wonderful quilt and pie shop that my lovely friend Susie gave to me. It is one of the first boxes that I reach for every single year.
The Bean is struggling with a particularly nasty flu and staff infection. She spent the entire day in the hospital ER yesterday and is feeling pretty low. If you have extras - please send good wishes her way.
