Despite taking my Icarus shawl everywhere I go, I’m only through the second repeat of five in the second section and really can’t show all y’all such a dull, boring picture of bupkis.
I did fly down to Long Beach this weekend (and brought my knitting – didn’t really knit though) to visit my dear friends. We went to their local farmer’s market at the marina. I went a bit produce crazy. I bought figs, heirloom tomatoes and tuberoses. I found this great recipe for a fig and carmelized onion pizza that made great use of the edible ingredients. I don’t cook often, but when I do, step back! TJoe’s pizza dough is the best.
The yarn is Elann Collection – Devon 100% wool (unshrinkable – okay) with a gauge of 25 sts/32 rows to 10cm/4" in the rosewater color. Yeah, crazy small gauge. This could be a mistake but it’s really not expensive, so it won’t be too costly if I don’t finish this sweater. Evah. I do like the color, very gentle and not too pinky. It’s really a roll of the dice whether this puppy will get made though isn’t it?
