Archive for February, 2013

Well here we are… deep into the month of February. Looks like snow is going to skip us again, last winter was chilly with an over abundance of “threat” of snow.

Well, I’m not sad because we didn’t get any snow but…it’s just that I’ve got so many really cool warm knitted scarves,hats & gloves. If the temps linger in the 40’s, well…it’s just not cold enough to sport all the lovely knit things I have… O-well

We did get a dusting…

The snow was deep enough for the birds to make tracks in, that snow was gone by the end of the next day.

I celebrated another birthday in February. Yippie!! =|. Well, I should be happy, I am…it’s just… O hell, I don’t know what I’m trying to say. One thing was for sure, I enjoyed spending the day with my daughter,nephew and Mom.

This is what it looks like in small town America when they roll up the sidewalks after sundown…

So, I was walking over to Starbucks and I looked down and there was a $1 bill…

I have a ton of this yarn, it’s called Lopi. It’s a chunky Icelandic wool…too scratchy for an article of clothing but perfect for say…A Rug! Funny thing is though, it’s making my nose “itch”, you know…just handling it is kinda giving me a bit of allergic reaction. Weird…right? =)

I will have to figure this out…maybe I’ll have to wear gloves when I knit with the Lopi yarn.

Not a regular grilled cheese Sammy…
So I got this artesian bread from the grocery store, it’s a sour dough bread.
Cut big chunky slices, drizzle extra virgin olive oil on both sides.
Put some deli sliced honey ham, a slice of Swiss cheese, a couple slices of tomato
Another drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, salt & pepper…
Place on a cookie sheet then into an oven,per heated to 400 degrees. Give them about 10
Minutes, remove, let cool…then Enjoy!

I’m back to work on my Bee Keepers Quilt, I’m using Madeline Tosh DK. Right now I’ve probably got enough pods to make…a very small lap blanket.

I began this project in August 2012, I’ll keep at until I’ve used all my yarn, my Madeline Tosh that is.

On another set of needles I’m working On a shawl called Zombie Teeth, it’s an easy knit, short rows mixed in with yarn overs…I’m liking it! More pictures to come…

Last of all…my baby lemon trees are on their way! Everyday seems there is another green stem poking through the soil. I think I’ve got 9 now… I really didn’t think that any would sprout…so I’m pretty happy with the lemony events…

I knit up “Just Enough Ruffles” over the weekend, the pattern was written by Laura Chau. It was an easy knit, just what I’d been looking for. I used Malabrigo yarn, it’s sooo soft! It’s nice against my skin!

I’ve been noticing the sun is staying up a little longer in the evenings, I do love a beautiful sunset!
