I should be doing something else. Really, I should. Like grocery shopping and cooking dinner. And there's always laundry waiting. But I can't seem to pull myself away from finishing up these projects that have been "nearly done" for a while. I want to get to end of my "in progress" knitting.
Pattern: Kid's Fruit Cap by Ann Norling
Yarn: Sublime baby cashmere merino silk dk
Needles: size 5
This is the first of my new yarns and so far, I'm pleased. This is a blend of merino wool, cashmere and silk. And, yes, it is machine washable! That little touch of silk felt good as I knitted it, so it should be comfortable for a baby's tender head.
This has been a busy week here on the farm. Spring has brought both destruction and beauty. Huge trees down on fences everywhere. Cows are in the pasture, so good fences are a necessity. They have been repaired enough to keep the cows in. More serious repairs will come later.
And a couple of days ago, I looked out our back window and saw that these flowers were blooming. My mother-in-law planted these long ago. I love that they are survivors. They have survived bad weather, being moved around in the yard, and my gardening ineptitude. I'm glad these are still with us because they make me smile.
Now....back to thinking of something to cook for supper. I've looked through the recipe index here, and, yeah! I have everything on hand to make Hawaiian BBQ Chicken. So there. It's decided. That's what we are having tonight. I'll go to the store tomorrow.
