Life's ups and horrible downs
Getting back to Sunday. . . I finished my brother's freakishly large scarf (just in time for summer). This will keep him warm on the South Pole!
I also finished spinning up & plying my second skein of handspun. Here it is drying up on the deck
And posing in the sun amongst the plants on the roof deck.
On the other side of the skein you can see a few hugely fluffy, chunky bits. Ah well
Speaking of the deck . . . two weeks ago we planted our veggies in our amazing Earth Boxes! Check out two weeks of growth:
Zucchini, Peppers & Herbs two weeks ago
and now (huge plant in the middle is the Zucchini)
Soon it was time to head over to Prospect Park for a little knitting outside with the Prospect Park Knitting Group. It was a perfect day. On the way I passed my favorite garden in spring time. There is a house whose yarn is filled end to end with tulips. Gorgeous!
My Feather & Fan Cardigan is to the miles of stockinette section . . . perfect for a knitting group. You can talk and not screw it up!
After a few dreamy hours knitting in the park I came home and decided to dust off the pasta maker. I haven't made pasta from scratch in over a year. I made a lovely basil fettucini and David came home and whipped up a fantastic spinach pesto. It was a perfect day.
I guess the perfect days wouldn't seem quite so perfect without the crappy days. I've had three kind of not so great days. I'm ready for my next good one.
