A Day for Celebration
Today is the first day of summer--the longest day of the year. I always seem to miss it, or be working on it, so this year I decided to celebrate. Karla's-day-off style. ^_^
(set of two)
Knitpicks Essentials in Dusk
Size C hook
All right, you got me, I made this yesterday... but it still counts! After working on socks (not to mention an afghan) that go on forever I had the urge to start and finish a project in one sitting, using up some extra sock yarn at the same time. A double magic ring and seven rounds later, voila!, coaster. It's sister soon followed. Sure beats the tea stained things I have now--I mean, one was out of baby sport yarn. Eck.
Also a baking adventure...
Scottish Shortbread from the latest edition of The Joy of Cooking. Our mixer is pretty weak, so I ended up mixing it all by hand. I never knew what shortbread was: butter with enough flour and sugar mixed in so it all falls apart. Add a few drops of water, smush it in the pan...
Nice and crumb-y and perfect with my tea.
Going out for sushi at twilight, a perfect end to the longest day.
