I love holidays…………..and Easter is one of my favorites; but the constant cooking and kitchen duty are not very high up on my life list.
I continue to come up with menu plans to create more time in my week to NOT cook. Once a Month Cooking has nothing on me! Even though I had out-of-town company this weekend, I still made all my meals count for at least part of another meal! I joke with my family, that I’d much rather quilt & applique everyone a place mat with pretend place settings on it…………and pretend food on the plates………..than cook a real meal! No one has gone for my plan as yet!
I managed to scrape out some knitting time today, in between meals and prep for the next one. The dropped stitch scarf with a twist, is about 2′ long at this point. I’ve attached the 2nd ball of ribbon yarn and still have 2 to go………….if I think it needs to be really long. Sometimes I’m not sure until I can see & feel how the fabric of the scarf is going to re act, or act, when it ties or loops. I do think this one might end up with some sort of tassel and bead arrangement on the ends…..there is a bit of a lightweight issue going on, and I’d like it better if it had more of a ‘hang’ to it.
Looking forward to getting back to work this week. I miss my studio…………my fabric………..and yarn!
