Weekend Plans

RAOKed
First and for most I was RAOKED. It happened at the end of March. I know this has taken me too long to post about. I apologize. I received a handful of recipe cards from
Alison over at Just Another Day.



The reason it took me so long to post about it is because I brought the cards to work and kept forgetting to bring them home. Many of my employees were making copies of the recipes. They all look very tasty. Alison is so very thoughtful. Thank you so much. Also her blog is great go check it out. I am hooked on it already.


Weekend Plans


Yes I broke down and rented some movies. I have not been to the movies in forever and have not rented any in such a long time. The reason is because last year we switched to satellite TV and we have several of the movie channels. So we try to wait until they come on the movie channels to get our moneys worth. I am going crazy. I am such a movie buff. I can hardly call myself a movie buff if I am the absolute last person to see the movies. Geez. Anyway I broke down and rented these two. Both I have been wanting to see since they came out. Plus they will give me some good knitting time while I watch them.


I got an updated photo of one of the neighborhood bunnies. Now that our grass has come out of dormancy he has been coming by to graze. So cute.


Brandy spotted him in the back yard while she was wondering around. He took off running for the safety of the front. Brandy followed in a slow run. Bassett hounds with their short legs are not fast runners a good thing for the rabbit. Anyway Brandy has been obsessed ever since she spotted him. You know from earlier posts she loves her bunny. Now Brandy spends hours out back with her nose to the ground dragging her ears in pursuit of rabbit tracks. I think she has found some rabbit pellets but that is all.

This weekend I plan to do some gardening. I lost a few plants this past winter due to several freezing nights. I will need to replace them. I should probably buy some Ben Gay this weekend also because I have not worked out in such a long time. I am so out of shape I know I will be sore after gardening this weekend.

So with the gardening the movies and working on knitting my cardi it should be a fun filled weekend. Bring it on I am ready! Just get me the Heck out of the office! 8)


New Knitting Patterns from Rowan

I received two new pattern books from Rowan last week. They are so good I have to mention them.


Classic Café


Classic Garden

These two books are awesome. Their goal was to come up with contemporary designs that would with stand the test of time. This is a great idea. For me if I spend several months making a sweater I hope that it would not be out of fashion in a short period of time. I want the items I knit to last a long time and stay in fashion.

If I had to choose only one of the two it would be Classic Café. There is at least six patterns I would like to make and two I definitely will make. Here is the two I just love.


This one is called HUDSON and is from the Rowan Classic Café. I love this sweater. I plan to possibly knit this one next winter. I love it with the hat. So SHEEK baby.



This one is called JERSEY and is also from Rowan Classic Café. What a great sweater. This is a great light sweater for spring or fall. I like the combo color it is shown in. I also looked up the yarn colors in the specified yarn and think I might want to do it in a pink & green combo. Maybe I might make two.

So many things to knit So little Time.


Response to Comments

Laura had a great tip that she left me in my comments about using dpns. She said:
“Have you tried this with your dpn...?Each time you finish knitting onto a needle, knit one stitch from the *next* needle onto it, then continue on as you normally would (you'll want to mark the start of your round, as the location of the garment shifts on the needles). Does that make sense? It's worked well for me.”
Thank you so much that is a great tip. I will definitely do it that way the next time I use dpns. Laura you are so great. I always felt we had a connection. You will have to let me know if you ever start up a blog again. So glad to hear from you. Take care.

Meredith enjoyed my write up of the art exhibit by Gregory Colbert in NY City. She asked where it was showing.
Meredith it is currently at the historic pier 54 in Manhattan’s West Side. It will be there from March 5th through June 6th. I am sorry you missed it on your recent trip to NY. I am not sure where it will be after NY. Hopefully somewhere else in the states. So more of us can experience his work.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
