Happy Friday

Down to weaving in ends and kitchenering halves of scarf together, called, btw Lovely Leaf Lace Scarf by Joelle Hoverson.  After all is said and done, I have just enough of Twinkle left over to put it together.  Tomorrow I block and hopefully will get some pics up.  Even before blocking it’s really pretty, so I expect great things tomorrow.  I have a mild case of startitis and have decided that I cannot make it one more day without a pair of cabled legwarmers so tomorrow, I will commence the hunt for the perfect pattern and then the perfect yarn. 

Since the weather has turned so cold, I’ve been wanting to make soup; today I fixed a really tasty (if I do say so myself) chicken and corn with orzo.  Can’t beat hot soup on a cold day.

Tomorrow is baking day, probably something chocolate.  I’m thinking brownies, but cookies are a strong contender.  Who knows, maybe both.  

Heard at a meeting:  It’s either a lesson or a blessin’.  



Who Knew?

Nearly finished with Leaf Lace Scarf.  It has a name, I got it off Rav, will look it  up tomorrow and post the real name.  It’s turned out well so far and the huge tragedy that I thought was going to happen didn’t.  This is what happened.  I thought I was going to run out of yarn (Twinkle Handknits, Cruise, color 36 – mauve), could have sworn I had more, but couldn’t find any.  I was about to bite the bullet and send out an APB on Ravelry to find enough to finish when, as I was cleaning out my bag today, I found a skein.  Who woulda thunk it, that it was actually where it should have been.  I jumped for joy – Yay bag, yay Twinkle.  Here’s what I have so far:

Finding more Twinkle made my day and I’m off tomorrow so if it gets any better, I won’t be able to stand it.
