Don't worry, he's not dead, just asleep. This was the best Mother's Day present ever... a 2 year old space ranger that ran himself silly and fell asleep way before bedtime. A few weeks ago, my husband and I made a list of the things we needed this season. My list was simple: the $5 sunglasses I saw at Target, yarn, and tequila. Well, I picked up the glasses last week on a diaper run, ordered myself some yarn a few days ago, and my sweetie surprised me with a big bottle of tequila to satisfy those margarita on the rocks cravings. I am set for summer... or this afternoon ;)
The yarn I ordered is for next month's project, so in the meantime I am going to bore you all with 240 more repeats of this. The pattern is Chinese Waves Dishcloth from Maggie's Rags but I am making a table runner. I am finally going to use up the acrylic yarn in my stash that is a beautiful linen color. This stitch pattern is super simple and very pretty.
Next, I will be making the Warm Shawl from Veronik Avery's book, Knitting Classic Style. I am making this to drape elegantly around my shoulders while I sip a glass of wine in my adirondak chair, watching the sun set, bathed in the glow from the copper fire pit . Ok, that was a total fantasy, but the shawl will be real, I promise.
Thank You for all of the compliments on my Pi shawl! I am humbled by the knitterly love.
